Dear readers, I have been remiss. In all my years writing about North Carolina food, traveling around the state stuffing my face, and touting places like Durham and Asheville as culinary meccas, I have neglected a gem of a city. Winston-Salem is a mere hour and a half from the Triangle and has a lively and delicious food scene that deserves attention! The hubby and I recently spent two days in Winston-Salem, here are some of the highlights:

Ollie’s Bakery - located right next to my hotel, this was our first stop. A bakery in the European tradition, Ollie’s is a feast for the eyes, nose, and, most of all, palette. We grabbed a chai latte (to warm us up on our planned walk around downtown) and a scone each. I went for the cheddar spinach, which was so substantial I didn’t even finish the whole thing. It made a great snack later that night! My husband went with a pear scone, and the little bit I managed to pry away from him as he devoured it was delicious. Ollie’s offered a full line of coffees and teas, a myriad of pastries and other goodies, and a large selection of artisan breads. I wish all of my mornings could start at Ollies! (300 S. Marshall St, closed Mondays)
