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

We had already bought far too many sugary items during our visit to Old Salem, but all my friends said we had to visit Dewey's and try their pink lemonade bars, so that's what we did. And I'm glad we did! I love anything lemon. Something about the sweet but not too sweet mixed with just a touch of sour... More

We love Dewey's! We go there for one of Two items. First is their Moravian sugar "cake ". It looks to me, more like an oversized thick waffle, with butter, sugar and cinnamon. Heated, they are heavenly. They freeze well also. We especially enjoy them at holiday time. Just get them out of the freezer and heat them up. 2nd,... More

Since I was born, Dewey's has always been our go to bakery. I live about an hour away now, but I do make it to Winston almost weekly, and Dewey's is always on my list of stops! They are even making my wedding cake and delivering it here, as a local bakery just wouldn't do when Dewey's is my favorite.... More

Can't beat Dewey's Lemonade cake. Try a piece. Or the Red Velvet. OMG they're great. Everything at Dewey's in yummy. The Moravian ginger cookies are a must buy! Dewey's is a local favorite - if you're visiting do stop in!

Planning our trip to NC, we discovered the Winston Salem region is home to the Moravians and they are famous for their cookies! We found 2 companies in town which advertise that they make them. So we went to both and were looking forward to a taste test comparison. First, we toured a cookie factory that makes them in 6... More

We just had to go in here after seeing all the amazing cakes in the window. Everything from gateaux & huge biscuits to cheesecake which is what we decided on. Huge pieces of creamy goodness freshly made on the premises. (You can watch as the pastry chefs are working.) About $5 each it was also very good value. You can... More
