Creating Sweet Moments Since 1930

Since 1930, Dewey’s Bakery has had the privilege of offering customers deliciously sweet and savory treats that reflect the local flavors we love. Our products are baked with care, and our passion is creating moments that bring people together to slow down, celebrate life and enjoy the moment! Our bakery has become a beloved part of our hometown of Winston-Salem, NC, and we’re proud to have been a part of such a wonderful community for so many generations.
