We loved this bakery. My son got a cranberry walnut muffin that was as big as his head. It took him 3 days to eat it. But he loved it. I tried an apricot muffin and my friend bought some caramel that she shared and some fruitcake. I don't know why everyone hates on fruitcake, because it rocks, and this... More

This is a unique little place to visit, bakery that specializes in its jam products. There seems to be every kind of jam know to man in there. This establishment is affiliated with a monastery (Byzantine monks) who run the little bakery, dressed in their "monk attire" I purchased the strawberry rhubarb jam which was excellent. We were actually looking... More

Friends and family gave us the "heads up" to not miss the Jampot. And, we almost did, as it sits on slight curve as you drive south on m26. Once inside, the choices are many for muffins, cookies, jams and a taste of the Lord. Crowd was not too large, as other reviews speak of waiting, in and out in... More

Everything our group bought we shared and tried, and every bit of it was delicious. If you want thimbleberry jam, you have to get there first, it is a hot seller. There are so many other flavors that you wont care if you did miss the thimbleberry. All of the baked goods are worth the price. You can tell they... More

All of the snacks have a very distinctive flavor, and they do their best to use quality ingredients. Some items are a bit heavy on the alcohol flavor and pricing is a tad high...they know the market for their goods. And profits go to a good cause. Would recommend them for a Hwy 26 pit stop

We got the oatmeal Raisin with peanut butter - best cookie ever! I also got the ginger walnut bread - I didn't realize it had brandy in it - Had a very strong alcohol taste - but still very yummy. so read the fine print!

We loved this place!! It's special in every way. We purchased a case of jam, breads, cookies, and coffee. It's expensive, but worth it! We enjoyed a few of our purchases in the picnic area outside of the store. A highlight of our trip.

Not only does this order of monks make and sell my favorite cookies of all times (which I cannot seem to recreate the recipe or get them to freeze well, causing me the utmost distress since I only come up to this area every 7-10 years), but they make a tremendous amount of other amazing baked goods, as well.
