An out of town friend emailed to meet at City Bakery. She wrote, “Gotta have one pretzel croissant per visit.”

I was looking forward to both seeing her and also trying my first pretzel croissant ($4.50). It

has a crisp, salty slightly crunchy crust sprinkled with sesame seeds — the inside is pure flaky croissant. An absolute treat.

If you’ve never had one, be sure to stop in on 18th Street when in the hood.
