Winkler's Bakery is an Old Salem tradition and the best place to buy sugar cake and Moravian cookies. Very small but historically interesting with volunteers explaining the bakery's origins.

The traditional Moravian... More

We live out-of-state so had only one chance to visit. We were there on a weekday afternoon and there was no wait. Since there was only the two of us we made only one purchase so it is difficult to judge overall quality of the baked goods. If I went back to Winston-Salem I would return to make another purchase...

You cannot go wrong with a visit to the Winkler Bakery. We walked in just as the bakers were removing bread from the historic oven. You will love the bread, cakes, and cookies
