We stop at the Jam Pot each year on our visit to the UP. Truly delicious muffins, cookies, breads, jam...all baked fresh by Monks in the attached kitchen. The experience is worth the trip but the goodies make it worth the time spent in line (very popular). Definitely a destination!

It was simple and sweet. The bakery and caramels are as described in previous reviews. I never realized there were so many versions if fruitcake. It was nice to be amongst others who appreciate fruitcake. We divided and conquered- some waited in the fast-moving line while others walked our adventurous group up the hill and let them explore Jacob's Falls... More

Every review was right about this bakery. It smells yummy, the offerings are delectable. The prices, however, are pretty steep. I wanted to buy a fruit cake for my dad--the large one, usual size, was $48. We settled for a small individual size for $14. We bought a couple slices of different items--$4 each. The fruit cake has a very... More

We stopped by on our way back to our cabin. The minute you walked in, it smelled yummy. We bought Chocolate/Almond Bark and the White Chocolate/Pistachio/Cranberry Bark and it was delicious. They make muffins, breads, homemade jams and it all looked so delicious. We will definitely stop by there again.

This place is run by monks. I love their red cherry jam so much that I bought a bunch of jars and sometimes mail order it. That is not the only delicious thing. Try one of their cream cheese pound cakes (they are almond flavored and look like a giant muffin). They are out of this world! This place is... More

You should stop here just for the experience, but you will miss out if you don't purchase some of their jams and baked goods! This small bakery is operated by a few monks who live at a local monastery. Their products are excellent, and the jovial monks are fun to chat with and only add to the experience!! DO NOT... More

If you come by - make a stop at the Jampot. They offer a whole lot of delicious looking pastries. We liked the cashew-caramel best.

Cute little shop run by a religious order that's famous throughout Michigan for the jams and baked goods. We bought grape butter and apricot raspberry jam- both were very good. The truffles and caramel, however, were AMAZING! I wish I lived closer, I'd be there all the time!

The drive to the Jampot Bakery is very scenic. Jack's Falls are beautiful. The breads and muffins are great. We tried the Abby cake, walnut and ginger cake, chocolate and coffee muffin, carrot cake muffin and the thimbleberry jam. All were good but the carrot took the cake. There was a line outside the bakery but it moved quickly. Their... More

If you pass it, turn around. Also, don't go in with your diet nor your budget in mind. It's pricey, but the treats are BEYOND divine. If they have the carrot cake muffin, buy it. That and the PBJ bars were out of this world. Everything else we had was amazing, too. Yes, it's pricey, but I can't believe how... More
