We stopped in here early, before our visit to the Franklin Institute. It was a cold morning, but when we opened the door and stepped inside, it was toasty warm. It also smelled great. I love that yeasty smell.
I ordered a dozen pretzels (and actually received 14), and got them in a brown paper bag. While I didn't see any pretzels coming out of the oven, these were still warm to the touch. One hint: don't close the bag while they are still warm, or they'll get kind of mushy.
These pretzels are much better warm out of the oven. You'll never feel the same way about a stale pretzel that was baked hours and hours ago. But then, I'm a pretzel nut!

"Even mid-afternoon, as Center City Pretzel Co. had shut down its ovens and was about to close, this place was hot inside. The pretzels we got, although at least an hour out of the oven, had a fresh chewyness and vivid flavor that put them among America's finest."
