Best of Winston: Your Coffee Shop Checklist

New coffee shops are opening up with some frequency in Winston-Salem, but here are our tried-and-true favorites. Next time you need a caffeine fix or a place to do some work, try one of these local spots! (And make sure to follow us on social media @bestofwinston for more inside info on the local food and drink front!)

  1. Sayso Coffee

Walking into Sayso feels like you’re walking into your neighborhood friend’s house, it’s that cozy and welcoming. With a brightly lit interior and a large outdoor area surrounded by an urban farm, Sayso is the perfect place to meet someone over a cup of coffee. They use Black & White roasters for their beans, and each drink is poured with care. While they only offer pastries on Saturdays (and often they disappear quickly!), you’re coming here for the coffee anyways, and it is 100% worth it. 400 S Green Street, Winston-Salem

  1. Anchor Coffee

Anchor Coffee in the Innovation Quarter is the second location for this small batch roaster out of Wilkesboro. There is true craftsmanship in each cup, and you can taste the difference. Their shop also offers locally-sourced snacks, merchandise, and beans for purchase. Grab a cappuccino and spend a morning catching up on work in their industrial-chic location. 486 N Patterson Avenue, Winston-Salem

  1. Camino Bakery

Camino Bakery made a name for itself as one of the first successful coffee shops in downtown Winston-Salem, and there are now multiple locations in the city due to its popularity. Camino uses Counterculture beans for drinks, with a very seasonal – very tasty – rotating menu to accompany their regular offerings. If you want to meet a friend or do some people-watching downtown, Camino is the place to be. 300 S Marshall Street, Winston-Salem and 310 B W Fourth Street, Winston-Salem

  1. Louie & Honey’s Kitchen

Although everyone associates Louie & Honey’s with their cinnamon rolls first (as you probably should!), their full coffee bar lineup is a worthy companion to their spectacular treats. Served in dainty, mismatched china pieces, each drink feels special. Savor your lavender and honey latte in their chic space, and make sure to treat yourself to that slice of cake you’re eyeing, too.401 West End Blvd, Winston-Salem

  1. Dough-Joe’s Doughnuts & Coffee

Come for the doughnuts, stay for the coffee. At Dough-Joe’s, you just have to try both! Take your cup of coffee to-go and walk Reynolda Village and trails, or snag a spot – if you’re lucky – at one of their indoor seating areas. The ambience oozes calm, we love giving ourselves an hour to read and enjoy our time here. 114 Reynolda Village, Winston-Salem

  1. Bobby Boy Bakeshop

Another bakery with outstanding coffee, Bobby Boy Bakeshop does not do anything sub-par. The exquisite attention to detail in everything they do from the gold leaf flakes on delicate pastries to coffee ice cubes for your cold brew is mind-blowing. Though Bobby Boy doesn’t have a huge offering of drinks, what coffee they do make is crafted to perfection. 1100 Reynolda Road, Winston-Salem
