You can get a really good pretzel, right here in Frankford. It’s up at 5331 Oxford Avenue. Pretzel Works has been there a long time baking pretzels and bagels for commercial customers. Mike Naselsky, the owner, decided to open up a storefront window for people to buy retail and I stopped by to see what was happening.
