About Us



With a combined experience of 30 years working in hospitality, Phil and Carrie Caldwell are the new owners of Pumpernickels. 

Originally from Holland, MI, Carrie spent 13 years in South Florida working in hospitality and is excited to be back to serve the great people of Western Michigan and those visiting this wonderful community. 

Phil was born in Pennsylvania, spent time in St. Petersburg, FL and South Florida, where he discovered his passion for restaurants and hospitality. 

After working together for 10 years in South Florida,  the Caldwells purchased Pumpernickels in 2018. 


Special Events

Our restaurant is available for private events: weddings, business lunches, dinners, cocktail receptions, and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event. 


Seasonal and Local

We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source our fresh ingredients from local farmers' markets.
