This is our second stay at the Pumpernickel Inn. As always Glenn was excellent. He checked us in and left us alone. The room is clean, and very comfortable. Free breakfast is included with the room, we did not eat this trip but everything looked very good. This is a comfortable down home place, no fuss, no frills. Priced perfect... More

My family visited this cute little neighborhood shop for a cool treat after dinner. Our walk to Izzy's was a pleasant surprise. All 8 of us had an ice cream treat even though gelato was also available. There were about 20 flavors available and some very unique flavors. The owner was very patient and friendly, and everyone from the ages... More

We forgot to pack a lunch to bring to the beach but lucky for us we found the pumpernickel! Their turkey sandwich was really great and fresh and their carrot ginger soup was so great. I'd def go back!

The Cafe at the Pumpernickel in Union Pier was a great local eatery. The outside appearance with old brick implied an outdated mom & pop diner, but inside, the restaurant was modern and clean and decorated well. We would have LOVED to see the teen staff trained to make our experience even better as the food was good. I had... More

My family stayed about 1 mile away from this cafe and we went at least once a day for Gelato. So many flavors, so delicious, this place is adorable. The staff is so nice and quick. I loved this place!

We vacation in Union Pier annually and alway go to the Pumpernickel for the gelato! Fresh delicious and wonderful flavors and so close to where we stay. We also get the Starbucks coffee in the morning. Just a solid, convent and pleasant place.

We are staying up the road near the beach in a cottage with our three kids. After about a mile walk we all enjoyed the gelato! While inside we made plans to go for lunch or dinner at another time. Friendly staff and great charm.

Not only are the meals innovative but they are made by one chef -- Glenn -- the inexhaustable 24/7 proprietor of the inn and restaurant. The meals are hearty, the soups homemade and inventive and the service from college students is likewise great. For those who do not appreciate the wait for good food there is a Pizza Hut sufficiently... More

The soup menu is fantastic and followed with a scoop of gelato and Starbucks latte hits the spot. FYI- there is no take out except gelato and coffee!

I have never experienced a more bizarre situation than I did at this restaurant. We were never greeted, never served and when we asked the waitress for drinks or a breakfast menu she indicated the the "chef" didn't think he would have time to make anything we ordered. I would never recommend this establishment to anyone. Save your time and... More
