Like a poorly designed highway, pretzels twist and turn, sending mouth motorists careening over rock-salt terrain into deliciously doughy dead ends. Buckle up with today’s Groupon: for $2, you get any pretzel sandwich (a $4.95 value) at Vinnie’s Pretzel Shoppe, on Brookline Boulevard. The family-owned-and-operated Vinnie’s offers a breather from basic bread with a menu of specialty pretzels and unique sandwiches. Trade in white and wheat for a warm pretzel-dough bun, filled with your choice of chicken salad, tuna salad, ham and cheese, or turkey and cheese. Blissed-out twisters can supplement their feast with freshly baked pretzels ($1 and up), chow down on a cheesesteak roll ($3), or unleash tooth hounds on a pretzel dog ($2). Vinnie’s also provides party platters and can custom-curl pretzels into letters, logos, and brain-teasing Möbius strips.
Though Vinnie's Pretzel Shoppe has yet to receive many online reviews, 71% of seven Urbanspooners like it:
- Their pretzel dogs are delicious and service is delightful. The shop itself is new clean and colorful and the family that owns it are very nice and welcoming. Great addition to Brookline Boulevard! – ben h
