Dewey’s Bakery: Making Every Day a Little Sweeter

Whether you’re a longtime patron, with decades of shared treat-filled memories at Dewey’s Bakery, or a newcomer enchanted by the magic within their glass cases, there’s always something new to discover and adore. 

Sweetness Meant to Be Shared

Stepping into one of the Triad’s three bakery locations presents you with a delightful dilemma. Do you opt for one of their tempting ready-made cake squares or pastries? Perhaps you’re drawn to the new Dewezy bar, offering layered dessert cups with custom toppings? And, let’s not forget the option to celebrate a loved one or indulge yourself with a special something from the ever-rotating gift shop, featuring myriad unique and thoughtful options. 

Then again, who says you have to choose? 

Establishing its flagship location at Thruway Shopping Center in 1955, Dewey’s is the sole original business that remains to this day. This marks almost 95 years of consistently offering cherished flavors and sweets that have become staples for local families and their traditions. Director of Operations Kayla Kubitz shared that “Dewey’s holds such a special place in people’s lives. I often find myself thinking how lucky we are that we get to be a part of so many positive and fun memories over time.”

Always Something Fresh & Fun

At Dewey’s Bakery, the skilled culinary team collaborates closely with clients to transform special occasions into extraordinary moments through custom cake designs. From weddings, bridal parties and anniversaries, to birthdays and baby showers, their talented decorators craft cakes that keep customers coming back year after year. 

Dewey’s takes pride in breaking away from tradition when it comes to cake creation. Beyond the conventional and well known designs, the team embraces the fun and creativity of current trends and pop culture, bringing to life cakes inspired by Bluey, Taylor Swift, Mean Girls and numerous personalized themes. A simple photo is all it takes for Dewey’s to turn a vision into a delicious reality; just bring in what you’re inspired by and they can make it happen!

Navy Franco, the cake decorating manager, emphasizes, “The talented decorators are mostly self-taught and have adapted and mastered Dewey’s’ way of creating beautiful cakes for customers to share with their loved ones.” With a commitment to both original and trendy designs, Nancy shared that “we are always looking for ways to expand our talent and push ourselves to deliver fun cakes and smiles to our customers.”

Of course, if you’re needing a cake at the moment, you can stop in and pick up a ready-made cake with custom wording decoration available!

From Oven to Outreach

Just as Dewey’s has continued to provide its delicious pastries and cakes to its community over the years, it continues to give back and make a positive impact through a variety of donation and fundraising initiatives. Right now, they are gearing up for their Spring Catalog Fundraisers, designed to support local schools, youth sports and other non-profit organizations. By selling Dewey’s Hero products, including Moravian Cookies, Moravian Sugar Cake and Cheese Straws, these fundraisers provide an easy and delicious way for groups to raise funds. Each $10 Dewey’s treat sold contributes $5 to the organization. 

This Winston-Salem landmark emphasizes its commitment to giving back, rooted in a historical event where the Winston-Salem community rallied to rebuild Dewey’s Bakery after a fire destroyed it on Easter Monday in 1955. Kayla reflects on this support, sharing, “We won’t ever lose sight that, at one point, the community gave back to us when we needed it the most.” To explore fundraising possibilities, interested parties can contact
