The pink lemonade cake squares are so delicious! It's almost like eating a bite of spring or summer. There are many other flavors of cake offered along with cupcakes and various other styles of baked goodies and breads. There are wonderful gift ideas scattered throughout the store too. My wedding cake actually came from Dewey's and they did an excellent... More

Ordered the best birthday cake. First layer was BlueRidge Ice cream's cookies and cream, second layer Dewey's chocolate cake, frosted, beautifully decorated. Was a surprise for my daughter who couldn't decide if she wanted a ice cream cake or a regular cake. This was the best of both. I will definitely be ordering this type of cake again. Will try...

I first went to Dewey's in 1985 and have been a huge fan every since. If I visit Winston-Salem, I have a list of three places I must visit... Dewey's is one. The cake squares are soo moist they melt in your mouth. Dewey's has cupcakes, cake squares, cinnamon rolls, pecan pie, coconut pie, cheesecake and many other selections to... More

Dewey's has been around forever, and has been updated over the years by adding homemade breads and now Blue Ridge Ice Cream too. It is a beautiful storefront at Thruway Shopping Center . . . much nicer than the old one . . . but also with lots of seasonal and regional gifts. You can also order gift baskets (just... More

When my children were very little, I used to bake all their birthday cakes and they were perfectly happy. One very year I broke down and bought my husband a birthday cake and it's been a family tradition since then on. I'm simply talking about their sheet cake, not the new creations they also do now with the fondant. Whenever... More

Dewey's Bakery has been around since I was a youngster and I'm now 68 yrs. of age. I can remember my Mom taking off to Thurway shopping center almost every Saturday to visit Dewey's. Every visit she would get these four items and sometimes even more if a special occasion were coming up. She would get cream horns, brownies, devonshire... More

The cakes are overpriced for what you get. Too many Tchotchke's and not enough customer service. Cake and All Things Yummy in Kernersville is better tasting and a better value. I guess that's why they started free cake square Mondays...

I like Dewey's for their Moravian cookies, cheese straws, ice cream and special occasion cakes. I'm don't like their other baked goods as much as Ollie's or Camino Bakery.
