Café Prost

Posted by DID 21 Nov 2011 One Comment

Café Prost, a German pretzel truck based out of Wake Forest, made its first (I think) Durham appearance this past weekend.

The menu was really simple – salted, un-salted or cheese pretzels. Salted and un-salted are $2.50 or 2 for $4, cheddar $3.00 or 2 for $5. We ordered two salted.

Truth be told, I’m a sucker for German-style pretzels – I can’t resist stopping at Guglhupf, I will go out of my way to go to Milltown in Carrboro for their pretzels (also from Guglhupf) and beer cheese and I even love the not-great soft pretzels and yellow mustard served at every sporting event. But Café Prost pretzels – still steaming, caramel brown, speckled with just enough sea salt, crisp on the outside and fluffy soft on the inside – just may have been the best I’ve ever had. Café Prost does offer classic yellow or spicy brown mustard for dipping, but really these pretzels don’t need either.

Parked outside of Fullsteam, Café Prost pretzels would be excellent paired with Fullsteam’s El Toro, Rocket Science, Southern Lager or well, pretty much anything else on tap. The guy manning the window assured us Café Prost would be making many more Durham appearances, but if you can’t wait they are at the Wake Forest Farmer’s Market every Saturday from 8am-12pm.

    I had a couple of them as well (salted, no cheese), and they were fantastic. Great texture – lightly snappy on the outside, and soft, springy dough on the inside. I had a couple of friends that went a few hours after I did, and it sounds like he may have been a bit overwhelmed, their wait and eat experience wasn’t like mine, but I told them to give it another shot next time, and would recommend the same to anyone else that had a similar experience. Or not, and I’ll eat all the pretzels myself :)
