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!

NICE BAKERY PRODUCTS !!!

I have shopped here for almost 50years and I still come back every now and then for some cheese straws and cake squares. I like their Moravian cookies too, but the cake squares are the things I get the most.

My husband loves traditional yellow birthday cake with white icing and also loves ice cream. Therefore this year I decide to just get him a Ice cream cake for his birthday. It really worked, even though I decided at the last minute. Dewey's has in stock several options of ice cream cakes and willing to write a personal message on... More

New to the area. Went to pick up a sugar coffee cake and Moravian cookies. The coffee cake was dry and only salvation was the coating of sugar on top. The cookies - well I went to purchase just because I have heard so much about them. Made the mistake of not looking at the price. Coffee cake and cookies... More

Local bakery for years going downhill. Prices gone up, quality gone down. Local staple for years specializing in pastries and baked goods. Selections have been reduced, prices inflated, and even old standbys like coffee and sugar cakes quality has lessened. Really a shame.

We wanted a sweet treat and found Dewey's Bakery. They were very busy for a Saturday afternoon. They have a gift shop too. We sat outside since the weather was nice.

If one is in the Winston Salem area, Dewey's is a must have. Their signature Pink Lemonade cake is amazing. Everything we have purchased from Dewey's is delicious. Both locations are equally as good. The coconut tart, brownies and sugar cake are "out of this world" as well! Well worth the extra calories:-)

I've been going to Dewey's for years. They used to have several locations. I often went to the downtown location where we'd get fresh éclairs, Neapolitans, Butterflies and Pineapple Danish, Alas, the Butterflies are no more and I didn't see the Pineapple Danish this visit either. Some items are only offered on certain days so maybe I was there on... More

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