Since opening in 1930, Dewey's has been baking traditional favorites such as Moravian Cookies, Sugar Cake, and Lovefeast Buns. Dewey's is also Winston-Salem's destination for cakes for birthdays, weddings and other special occasions. Blue Ridge Ice Creams, a Winston-Salem favorite for over 25 years, recently joined Dewey's, bringing their delicious ice cream, gelato, sorbet, milkshakes and more. The bakery's newest treats include cake pops and cheesecake in an array of decadent flavors. Every Monday is Free Cake Square Day!

Great Cream Horns

Dewey's is the best bakery in W-S. From grandpa cakes to cream horns, no where better to go. Make an effort to visit.

Everything is really good, but nothing is cheap. The cakes are so fresh and taste great. I recommend everything in the place.

When in Winston, you must stop here for a local tradition. Moravian sugar cakes and spice cookies, cheese straws, etc. These old fashioned treats are the best and are what memories are made of. Eating these things is totally worth the calories, and far better than sugary but vapid Krispy Kreme donuts.

There's something special about Dewey's Bakery....an institution locally, with several locations in the past, the location at Thruway Shopping Center is their flagship. Birthday cakes, breads, sweet treats...they have it all. Pricing at Dewey's however has definitely become such that it takes a special occasion to lure me in.

This used to be a great place to buy pastries and load up on Christmas gifts. Someone has turned into a frou-frou gift shop featuring overpriced goods. The clerk who helped me buy gifts for my clients was rude. What a shame. I miss the old Dewey's.

Winston-Salem may be known as the home of the "HOT NOW" signage but Dewey's can easily claim fame too for their "SUGAR" highs in the form of COOKIES GALORE. . .from spice cookies, to chocolate, peppermint covered decadence, cookie lovers will not be disappointed nor will those looking for what I would call the most comatose, amazing sugar induced luxury...

They need to focus more on the product and elevate there game. It is just ok, and relatively pricey. Would have no problem if they were exceptional, but they are not.
