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.

When you walk in the door the smell is amazing!! This is a bakery, ice cream shop, & gift shop. We liked every part. The gifts were cute. There were plenty of frozen treats to choose from. The pastries and cakes were ourstanding. When we are back in town we will defiantly eat here again.
