A trip to Old Salem is not complete unless you stop by the Winkler Bakery. You can purchase delicious cookies, bread and sugar cake to enjoy. Part of the Old Salem experience.

You can't eat here. You can buy traditional Moravian baked goods, but this is not an eatery. It is a top attraction in Old Salem, no ticket required. Don't miss it. There are 2 other dining places in Old Salem to sit and eat.

This small period bakery is very charming. Though small the staff was efficient and friendly. When the bread we wanted to buy was not out of the oven yet, they held our bag of other purchases until our return for the fresh baked items. Sweet eats, and sweet people.

We used the bakery address in our GPS to find Old Salem Village. We went in to investigate the bakery and got the most interesting information and bought the most delicious cookies. We bought the cake and bread as it came out of the oven. there are no words to describe how good they were.

The Winkler Bakery (c.1800) is located in the preserved Moravian community of Old Salem.

You find the bakery by following your nose to the delicious aromas that permeate Old Salem. The bakery is a historic site and visitors can see where bread and sugarcake are baked, then buy some on their way out. It's a small place and gets crowded when there are tour groups around. There is a rotating baking schedule for breads,... More

Stopped while touring Old Salem. It was later in the day so we missed the baking demonstration. They were also sold out of most things. Grabbed some cookies and hope to go back again and see what we missed.
