As a native of Winston-Salem, I came to appreciate Dewey's Bakery, especially long ago at the Old Salem location, and then at Northside Shopping Center during its early days. Those were the days when the selections were limited, but baked to perfection. I had to have Moravian Sugar Cake and Devonshire Coffee Cake so being 10 hours away by car,... More

I've enjoyed pastries at Dewey's Bakery for many years. The Bakery has always been to go to place for the finest Bakery products. However, over the last year, or so, the quality and size of the eclairs has greatly diminished. The filling in the eclair, as well, as the pastry size has taken on the quality of a prepackaged convenience... More

I have been going out of my way to shop at this bakery for years, but they have really outdone themselves. You MUST try the pink lemonade cake. It is to die for.

Dewey's has been in the area for a long time. One of their specialties we live is their pink lemonade cake. The company changed management and it is not what it use to be. The prices have increased and the quality has gone down. I stopped to get a few lemonade cake squares I didn't need a whole cake, when... More

I stopped in for Sugar Cake right before Christmas. The store was packed but service was quick and easy. The individual sweets and ice creme looked amazing, but it isn't Christmas in my house without Sugar Cake and Moravian Cookies. Beautiful decorations for sale but most of the people were taking holiday sweets. I recommend the store for anyone looking... More

Whenever my wife and I are in Winston-Salem we always stop at Dewey's to load up with Moravian sugar cake. We can freeze it and then when we are ready to eat it we pop it in the oven or microwave and warm it up and .......what a treat. I will also mention that Dewey has they're excellent pastries that...

Oh the joy of going to Deweys growing up! Chocolate eclair so were ten cents and were heavenly. The cases used to be full of your favorite pastries. Now, the selection is very limited and not as good as it used to be. Specialty cakes are very expensive. Best to go to Sams Club for those. I miss the old... More

I have to admit I have a bit of a sweet tooth. My husband grew up in Winston-Salem and said the next time that we are down there I have to take you by Dewey's. He had already told me stories of his childhood of going to get the Sugar Cake freshly baked and loving every single bite of it.... More

We love Deweys! The cupcakes are amazing. They are so moist and the flavors are delicious. The pink lemonade, carrot cake and red velvet are favorites. Its great that you can get cupcakes or pieces of cake in the same flavors. A sweet treat to take to a friend for tea/coffee. The pastries are also very good. Treat yourself and... More

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!
