Kilwins is a chocolate, fudge, and ice cream shop located in Thruway Shopping Center. As soon as you enter their door you will smell the chocolate fudge, freshly popped corn, or newly made waffle cones. Come in for ice cream and you may leave with a caramel apple or truffle. They have 24 flavors of ice cream to choose from and you can sample them all.


Twin City Sweets

Twin City Sweets is an ice cream stand at 2594 W. Clemmonsville Road that carries ice cream (obviously), soda floats, candy apples, and candied roasted nuts. Enjoy their large sundaes in an adorable fenced-off area full of picnic tables and stringed lights. They are closed during the winter months.

TJ’s Deli

Homemade ice cream. Yep, you read that right. Enjoy the real stuff at TJ’s Deli. From the classic to the unique, you’ll find a flavor your taste buds will love. We highly recommend the banana split! 


Abbotts Clemmons

Although it’s a chain, Abbotts is a great place to go after dinner, a sports game, a day in the park, or whenever you want to enjoy some delicious frozen custard. Custard is made from egg yolks in addition to cream and milk. It is also prepared differently than ice cream, which makes it denser.


Baked Just SO

Their ice cream is available in cups or cones and they also have yummy toppings like Mini M&Ms, sprinkles, or chocolate drizzle. Looking for more than ice cream? Try their ice cream sandwiches using their homemade cookies! 


Salem Creamery and Coffee

A family-owned ice cream and coffee shop located in Oliver’s Crossing shopping center. Ice cream and coffee mean double the fun! Salem Creamery offers classic and unique flavors for a great price. Want coffee and ice cream? Order their cold brew milkshake, nitro float, or affogato. 



A true staple of Winston-Salem. Dewey’s has two locations in Winston. Their ice cream is slow-churned daily. Ice cream flavors include Moravian Cookie, Oatmeal Sandwich, Banana Pudding, and all the classics.
