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!

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.

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.

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.

I am a native of Winston-Salem and Deweys is a landmark institution in town - however, the last two times I have been to the store, the service was horrible - none of the staff acknowledged my presence and I noticed employees playing around in the kitchen. The bakery was not even busy and while I waited for someone to... More

Dewey's (the company) is a city landmark. They've been serving up pastries and sweets as long as I can remember and there are few locals that haven't enjoyed them. I'm enthusiastic about most of the menu, but I really like the indigenous stuff. Suggestion: 'Moravian cookies'.
