Free cake Monday! It would make you think that you can get out of there with just one square of cake, but you are wrong! The cookies, ice cream, coffee, gluten free options and so much more, make your hated Mondays the perfect sweet day. Simple a delight to start your week.

Dewey's recently acquired Blue Ridge Ice Cream and have done a great job incorporating it into their line-up. I purchased a Groupon deal for ice cream and looked forward to using it at the Reynolda Road location. I visited the store at 9:30 a.m.on a Friday morning, and one employee was on duty. I was dismayed to find ALL the... More

Deweys always has wonderful tasting items. Love their sugar cake, gramma & grampa coffee cakes and my all time favorite is the Devonshire coffee cake ! The pink lemonade cake squares are famous and tasty. I have also tried their ice cream; Very good. I know LOTS of people who wouldn't order a special cake from anywhere else. Going to... More

The cupcakes were excellent. The cake was moist and fresh as well as the icing. The icing was not overly sweet. A bit on the pricey side. The store has numerous party supplies (candles, plates, napkins, greeting cards). All items were pricey but a large selection.

We went in for icecream and were yelled at from the man behind the counter to "hurry up and order before his line got long". There was no one in line behind us and we would have let them go before us while we looked at the choices and made our decision. Horrible experience, we will not be returning.

Unfortunately there's too many other choices all looks great also could be a very addictive coming to a place like this on... More

Note: a bakery review, not a restaurant review! Winston-Salem is famous for its thin, delicious traditional Moravian cookies. When visiting the city, I often want to bring a bunch of them back (often in tubular tins) as always-welcome small presents. But they are a specialty item, found in only a few places: Old Salem, Dewey's, and (the best ones) at... More

Service is alright. Cake squares are the best and really the key item to purchase here. Cupcakes are always very dry and only the frosting has flavor. Theme cakes are overpriced.

I always want a Dewey's birthday cake for my birthday, and they are consistently yummy. I am disappointed, however in the quality of their baked goods. I have been in their twice in the past month and tried to get a fresh Napoleon or cinnamon bun. I was disappointed both times. In fact, I just threw out the napoleon because... More

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
