Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

WINKLER BAKERY

521 SOUTH MAIN STREET

Constructed 1800, restored 1968

One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)


A bit of history....






The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)
Happy Travels Everyone!

    1. Yes do check it out. Old Salem is full of history. I would like to go back. It is much smaller then Williamsburg but would be a nice 2 day trip. Let me know if you go:-)

My Stay at The Aerie Bed and Breakfast in New Bern NC
