Thought we were going to go for bagels (after all, the place is called...). But were drawn to the fantastic looking pizza slices and were not disappointed. Great crust, thick and dense. And overall a delicious slice in a city known for pretty blah pizza....More

Pumpernickels consistently has great bagels, pizza, and sandwiches. Try the chicken parmesan sandwich -- it's fantastic. The breakfast sandwich is also a treat. Reasonable prices for everything on the menu. This is an authentic neighborhood restaurant near a lot of good shops. Revamped interior.

Ok, so I was recommended to eat here and boy was I disappointed. They had run out of Bagels so ended up having a tuna sandwich which was ok, nothing special. Pizza was hard and dry. Fries were like grocery store own brand. The place...More

Dirty, dark and very unwelcoming place. Smelled of cigarette smoke. Could not wait to exit.
