Stopped at a couple of these stores and found them to have many different types of salsa's and sauces as well as honey and syrups. Plenty of samples to try out the product before you purchase. The staff was also helpful and pleasant to talk to.

There's a reason why American Spoon routinely wins awards such as the Good Food Awards, among others. Their products are simply amazing. Stop on in to sample their products or to see what their cooking up in the store- you won't be disappointed!

Great place with unusual and tasty lunch items. Located in a local shop that offers jams, jellies and salsas made with fresh michigan produce. Sampling may lead to fullness, save room for lunch!

We each got 2 scoops in a small cup. I mentioned to one of the servers that the place was getting busy behind us. She said we are ALWAYS busy, in a not so nice tone. The pineapple, hazelnut, and berry ones were really good. It was raining outside, so we asked if we could sit down. The person said... More

We stop at American Spoon every chance we get when we travel in northern Michigan. We LOVE the Lemon Curd, it tastes like lemon meringue pie! We always stock up on it!

We stumbled across this place on our first trip to Petoskey. I am so glad we went it! It was a busy Saturday afternoon, but we got a table quickly, and the staff were very friendly.
