Visited here on a Sunday morning with a friend from Pittsburgh. So glad he brought us. Excellent pretzels and what a great bargain. Wish we could get there more often. We will be back every time we are in Pittsburgh!

Any time I visit Pittsburgh I am sure to stop by The Pretzel Shop in South Side. The prices are very good and their pretzels, sandwiches, cookies and brownies are excellent. I can see why they have been around for a long time.
