Bakery - not a restaurant. This is a local shop that sells authentic baked goods associated with Old Salem. Sometimes the volumes of visitors can make the wait long. Selection is on a first come basis and they can run out of select items. Be aware that the shop closes at 5 PM so if you plan to purchase some... More

Delicious Moravian sugar cookies, sugar cake & rum flavored pound cake! Very courteous staff certainly equaled the reputation provided by friends before we visited.

Good sugar cake, although I am partial to Dewey's sugar cake. Cookies, cakes, granola mix, honey buns,.....many choices made right there in the old bakery.

Moravian sugar bread is the most popular and runs out quickly on weekends. We got the "day old" version for half price and it was outstanding. Fresh baked breads, cakes and cookies. Lots to choose.

This was very interesting to take a visit back in time with Authentic Moravian bakery items. Yes it was a must to bring home several of the bakery items and they are so good.

This place was very busy offering a variety of locally produced cookies, cakes and bread. We tried tins of Authentic Moravian Lemon cookies and Ginger cookies which were packaged in tubes that are easy to transport home.

Winkler's is still making baked goods like they did 250 years ago. We made sure to stop into Winkler Bakery on our trip to Old Salem. It is interesting to see how things are made and the treats are really good. This time around we picked up some pound cake -- delicious, dense and moist -- and of course traditional... More

See how bread, pastries, and cookies were made in the Old Salem bakery during colonial times and today - they're the same.
