We have come here every year for the last 5 years and the soup and the gelato never ever fail. They are delicious. This is a small owner operated business with quality food. If you come in for a meal, you may have a bit of a wait since Glen cooks everything himself.

Our family stopped by as we were staying at a resort nearby. We’ve had their gelato before and it is excellent. We then came back for breakfast the next day. The person that severed us gelato ended up being our waiter the next day since it is a small place. We all really enjoyed our meals and the portions were... 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 The outside appearance with old brick implied an outdated mom & pop diner, but inside, the restaurant was modern and clean and decorated well.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.
