Great selection of fresh made preserves and baked goods. Monks super nice and explained everything to us. Their cookies are fabulous and hospitality second to none.

This place is a treasure and a wonderful find along a somewhat lonely road near Eagle Harbor, Michigan. As you walk toward the cottage housing the Jam Pot, wonderful fragrances waft toward you. The monks are baking while you visit...some of the most delicious bakery items you'll ever encounter. The oatmeal peanut butter raisin chocolate chip cookies were wonderful. There... More

Cannot miss this stop! Fantastic bakery with unique and extraordinary breads, muffins, confections, and jams. Run by monks to support their church which is a beautiful sight on Lake Superior. The line was long, but moved quickly. Worth a wait!

You will regret the 15 minute stop you make her. Wonderful selection of jelly for sure, but the bakery is outstanding. The rum raisin brownie is absolutely heaven - no pun.

By reading everyone else's reviews I decided to check out this monk run little place along the way on my vacation. It's a bit pricey but you are helping support the monks and their abbey, a beautiful place with many acres on Lake Superior. I bought a couple different jams and a Walnut fruitcake and sugar cookies. It's easy to... More

As soon as you walk in the store it reminds you of Grandmas kitchen back home. This is probably the best way to explain it. Cookies, cakes, jams and jellies. Something to take home and something to eat on the ride back. We bought a half dozen Chocolate chip cookies with raisins and walnuts that did not last even half... More

This busy place is run by monks that make all of the various jams/jellies, bakery items, candy, etc...There's every kind of jam/jelly that you can imagine so the selection can be a bit overwhelming. The prices are a little on the high side, so I'm hoping that the jelly selections I made are worth it. I also got some molasses... More

The Jampot is a must-see in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This monastery serves as the home of a large group of orthodox monks who live on what could be the most beautiful piece of property on the shores of Lake Superior. Inside the Jampot, you will find some tremendous baked goods, jams, and jellies and will want to come... More
