We are moving to Union Pier and just found this place. Nani's seems to have developed a nice following with people popping in most of the time we were there for either a sit down meal or to pick up coffee and rolls. The menu isn't gigantic, but I can assure you you'll find something you like on their menu.... More

My friend and I stopped by on a Sunday morning for some breakfast sandwiches and muffins to go. I had the pepper and egg sandwich which was divine. The roasted red peppers, mixed with the egg on their homemade bun was just perfect. The muffins were incredible. I can't wait to go back.

Loved the atmosphere, staff totally friendly and good. Food was great, Shrimp in garlic butter sauce sandwich amazing, even the bread they serve their sandwiches on is extra good! We saw the muffins which looked yummy but didn't have them. Root Beer Floats, wonderful!

We'd heard the lauding of their muffins and wanted to give these a shot. They were indeed great, huge and somewhat unique. We tried the almond, lemon, and their maple bacon. As with most muffins, the best part of course was the "top" half. We had a box of bottom halves left at the end of breakfast. One important note... More

Thuisplace has the most amazing array of muffins I have ever seen...flavor of the day was Bacon-Maple. My nephew who is still a big eater ordered one and a breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs and bacon and he had a tough time finishing both! All baked goods looked delicious. Cute decor.

Came here for breakfast and was it ever good! Their muffins are huge and oh so tasty. The maple bacon muffin and cinnamon sugar muffin are excellent. The breakfast sandwiches are also very good. If you are in the Union Pier area be sure to try this place. They have limited hours during the off season but are open every... More

This place came highly recommended; especially for kids and especially for those looking for a little taste of Chicago on the Michigan shore. It's a wonderful little place for lunch. The food is fresh and the service friendly. They serve hot dogs, a small selection of sandwiches, coffee and root beer (that's it!). The dogs are not true Chicago style... More

This is a cute place for lunch in Union Pier. The draft root beer is served in a frosty glass. The kosher hot dog is served Chicago style on a buttered bun. I suggest skipping the truffle fries.

The best shrimp roll and maple bacon muffins this side of heaven. The menu focuses on a few dishes made with loving care using quality ingredients. Don't miss this if you are in the area. Drive there if you are not.
