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.
