Cafe Prost Gourmet Pretzel Truck out of Wake Forest

I’ve been following this Cafe Prost for some time now and happy to see they are now out on the Streets of the Triangle on a regualr basis adding to the local foodie scene!  Their truck is based out of Wake Forest and serves up the most incredible German pretzels I’ve ever had. They keep it simple by focusing on gourmet German pretzels but also offer some amazing oatmeal walnut raisin cookies and fresh brewed coffee as well.

Today's Menu

Last week I caught up with the Cafe Prost truck while it was parked at the Star Mart Service Station at 818 South Main Street in Wake Forest across the street from the blue Aqaurium Outfitters building (Link to Map). You can typically find the truck parked in this spot Wednesday through Friday from 8am to noon throughout the month of February. On Saturdays they are usually set up across the street from the Durham Farmers’ Market and they are starting to make regular appearances at Fullsteam Brewery.

Pesto Romano Pretzel from Cafe Prost

When I stopped by their truck last week in Wake Forest they were offering three kinds of pretzels: traditional Swabian-German pretzels topped with sea salt, pesto romano pretzels, and jalapeno provolone pretzels.  They were just pulling a tray of freshly bakes pesto roman and jalapeno provolone pretzels out of the oven when I arrived so I bought one of each and a coffee. The pretzels were amazing!  The pretzels are soft and fluffy on the inside with warm toasted exterior that provides a synergistic texture on your tounge.

Jalapeno Provolone Pretzel from Cafe Prost

The pesto romano pretzel was my favorite with just the right balance of herb and cheese. I would have never thought of adding peppers as a topping to a pretzle, but I found the jalapeno provolone pretzel to be delicious as well. The jalapeno was not too hot and went incredibly well with the toasted cheese to compliment the pretzel.  Both pretzels were so flavorful I found I didn’t even need mustard (which I love) and instead enjoyed them both “as is”. I would recommend trying both of these pretzels and look forward to having more of them and other pretzle offerings from Cafe Prost in the future.

Cafe Prost

Cafe Prost accepts both cash and credit cards as methods of payment.  To keep posted on where they will be each week you can follow them on twitter @cafeprost.  If you are interested in having Cafe Prost park their pretzel truck at your place of business or special event or buying their pretzels for resale you can contact them through their website for more information. I think they  would make a great addition to the food truck rotation at both Fullsteam and Big Boss brewery as well as the soon to open White Street Brewery in Wake Forest. I mean who out there doesn’t like warm soft pretzels and beer?

    TE,
    I am going to have to get into Hot Pursuit and chase these guys down for a salted pretzel!

  2. Thanks for the article, TriangleExplorer! We certainly are excited for White Street Brewery to open in Wake Forest and appreciate the coverage! We have availability for a regular lunch schedule and are continually looking for other businesses to partner with. Also worthy of mention is that we sell our products for resale, mainly to Cafes and restaurants. Find our products available at the new Respite Cafe in Durham and Saturday 2/18 we’re planning on being back in Durham at the Durham Farmers Market. Looking forward to serving you the freshest and most authentic German pretzels in the Triangle.
