Overpriced and exploitive. With all the alcohol-soaked goods, they should really have a liquor license.

If you are headed to Copper Harbor, be sure to stop by Jampot to stock up on amazing jams and baked goods. Nestled alongside a scenic highway and a waterfall in the U.P., the Jampot is a gem. The monks are very friendly and helpful. You cannot go wrong stopping in here for a treat or a gift. They only... More

We enjoyed a pit stop on our tour of the Keewenaw, and this was by far our favorite stop! The muffins were amazing, the monks were friendly and interesting, and I can tell you know that we are home and have tried it... the jam we bought is amazing! REAL ingredients make a gingerbread muffin taste like no gingerbread you... More

Stopped here because we heard it is a "must do" in Copper Harbor. So we went mid-day Saturday and it was crowded. We had to stand outsider for 10-15 minutes and then had to get in the spiral line they make inside this tiny shop. I am still not convinced this is not some great scam. I mean the baked... More

All of the jams and marmalades we have tried have been excellent. We especially love the wild strawberry jam, Thimbleberry jam, and the orange marmalade. I am, however, very confused about their prices. Early this summer the Thimbleberry jam was $12, in July it was $15, and now, in October, it's $18. I really don't understand the price increase. It...

We were innocently 'winging' our way up to Brockway Mt. for the fall colors when we got tempted by a "bakery" sign we couldn't resist. The sweet unexpected discovery had us feeling like kids in a candy store--which The Jampot Bakery is, too. So, we got candies, along with baked goods and jellies--while a crowd filled the small cottage shop.... More

This place is kind of in the middle of nowhere, and happened upon it looking for waterfalls in the Eagle River - Eagle Harbor area, although I do recall reading about it on trip advisor. They have a huge variety of jams/jellies and are apparently known for their fruitcakes. I am not a fruitcake fan, so I did not buy... More

Great bakery goods and jams!!!! Some baked goods made with alcohol so one must be alcohol tolerant. If not, beware of what you choose.

Stopped in here because it was a recommended stop in our tour book - to buy some Abbey Cake. It is pretty odd inside - and the proprietors are of course monks, so it is kinda expected I suppose. Not overly friendly. Very expensive treats, but tasty. Bought some unlabeled cookies that we though were oatmeal raisin - turned out... More
