Local bakery will offer new dining options on Reynolda Campus this fall

Camino Bakery, a local business in Winston-Salem, will be opening on Reynolda Campus in August when the fall semester begins. The former Starbucks location in ZSR library is being renovated this summer for the transition.

The bakery will serve specialty coffees, pastries, scones, muffins and bagels, as well as a variety of lunch items and desserts. Vegan and gluten-free options will be available.

“We are excited about the variety of new dining choices that will be available in ZSR library for the campus community. Additionally, the partnership with Camino Bakery is an opportunity for Wake Forest to support a local business that is committed to investing in our broader community,” said Dean of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library Tim Pyatt.

The location will be open the same hours as the former Starbucks (with some modifications to align with Wake Forest’s reopening plans for the Fall 2020 semester) and employ the same staff. Camino Bakery will accept all methods of payment including Food Dollars, Old Golds and Deacon Dollars. Pre-ordering for pick up will be available.

In 2008, Cary Clifford started a tiny bakery in the basement underneath Krankies Coffee. In 2011, the first Camino Bakery retail shop opened on W. 4th Street in downtown Winston-Salem. Camino Bakery now has additional locations on S. Marshall Street and in the South Tower of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. 

More information about Camino Bakery’s local partnerships, commitment to sustainability and support for the Winston-Salem community is available on their website.

Starbucks will continue to serve the campus in North Dining Hall.
