Hannah's Bretzel




This tiny Euro-chic café bills itself as an organic carry-out restaurant, but note that the word healthy is nowhere to be found. Warm, whole-grain pretzels—baked throughout the day on the premises—may indeed be good for you, and no doubt the organic salads are, too. Sandwiches, such as the Black Forest ham and Gruyère on soft “bretzel” bread, aren’t exactly unhealthy, either. But our doctor probably wouldn’t condone our favorite part of the store: an entire wall dedicated to chocolate, stocking more than 250 different bars.

Anything on a pretzel roll will intrigue me, so I figured as long as I was trying a new restaurant I would try a new thing! Pictured here is the Angry Tofu, made with spicy harissa marinated tofu, tomato, avocado, & red onion. It was quick and yummy and possibly even healthy? A winner.


Hannah's Bretzel is a great quick place to lunch in the loop. They have unique and gourmet takes on classic sandwiches. They also use super fresh products. If you're not in the mood for a sandwich I recommend the barley soup!
