The Jampot is a favorite local tourist attraction. Run by a group of monks, they make and sell a large variety of homemade jams and jellies, as well as scrumptious bakery. The monks wait on you, and are super friendly and joyous. Don't be surprised if you have to wait in line, but it doesn't take long. Yes, a wee... More

We'd heard about the legendary Jampot, which is a bakery run by an order of Byzantine Catholic monks. The shop is spotless, small and loaded with their homemade jams, jellies and baked goods. We were in a short line that moved very quickly as one of the monks chatted up customers while running credit cards and bagging goodies. The monastery... More

Well worth the visit! Best cookies, jams, cakes, etc. If you like bourbon, be sure to try the Abby Cake. Everything is delicious.

An unexpected treat. Looking for waterfalls and lighthouses and we come across this special Bakery. The monks make jams, cookies, and muffins that are some of the best I've ever had. Our favorites were the Sour cream pound cake muffin and the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffin.

Awesome sweets! Small building not room for very many people at one time to shop. Expect to see: fruitcakes, jellies, jams, cookies, cupcakes and candies along with other dessert. Very unique store don't miss it. We bought cookies (molasses and oatmeal with raisin and chocolate chips) both fantastic; gingerbread cupcake with lemon icing had raisins in the middle (good but...

This place should be the gold standard for bakeries! I am not big on baked goodies, but we stop here every time we go to Copper Harbor and stock up on treats for the week and generally run out and have to make a second trip! We absolutely love this place! The kitchen is so clean, the monks are very... More

We took a little out of the way drive to the Jampot, recommended by friends and it was great. It just appears on the side of the road right past a cute little waterfall. It's a small bakery ran by monks and me and my teen kids loved it. They don't mark what all their bake goods are so you... More

Everything we tried was fantastic. This is a true gem. I had a peanut butter & jam brownie and it was outstanding. The ginger walnut fruitcake we tried was also great, however, it definitely was soaked in whiskey.
