The California Soft Pretzel

No Lye

Lye is a man-made corrosive chemical used for industrial cleaning. Almost all pretzels are dipped into Lye to get that familiar brown color.  Instead, we use an all-natural process to achieve that mahogany shine, which is part of our unique California soft pretzel taste.

Because everyone loves pretzels

Better Together

Warm & Cozy

Founded in Santa Barbara, CA in 2016, Pretzel Guild was an idea to turn a guilty pleasure worry-free.

Based on the classic Bavarian-style soft pretzel, we have infused our California roots to draw on All-Natural, Organic, Non-GMO, Free Trade and Local Ingredients everywhere we can.  The dough is made 24 hours in advance for a long, slow, cold ferment which brings out a wonderful flavor. We use only unbleached, unbromated high quality flour, grass-fed butter, cage-free eggs, and we roll each pretzel by hand.  

Not quite German, not quite Philadelphia, but a new California twist on a 1,200 year old favorite.
