Smales Pretzel Bakery is located in the heart of the Twin Towers neighborhood in East Dayton. This bakery has been family-owned and operated for over 100 years for an obvious reason – quality! The Smales family has been making soft and hard Dutch oven pretzels the old fashioned way – using old world technology and old world recipes. Founded by the great grandfather of current owner Larry Smales, the bakery continues to produce some of the area’s best pretzels, as well as Grandpa Chuck’s homemade noodles. For a touch of the past, pretzel lovers are welcome to visit the bakery, watch them hand-twist the pretzels, and select one hot right from the oven. Can’t visit? Smales will ship anywhere. Smales is one of the tastiest Dayton Originals!
