Camino Brookstown: Could This Be Salem’s New Go-To Coffee Spot?

By Emily Ramser

    Camino Bakery is opening a second location just a few steps away from Salem College. The bakery and coffee shop will be taking over The Flour Box bakery at 300 S. Marshall St. at the intersection with Brookstown Avenue.

    In order to differentiate it from the Camino Bakery downtown, this location will be called Camino Brookstown. It will open in mid-May. The initial hours are set to be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday right now. However, owner Cary Clifford told the Winston-Salem Journal that this is subject to change based on the amount of traffic the location receives.

   Though in a different location, Camino Brookstown will serve coffee and a lot of the same baked goods as the original location. It will not have wine and beer for the time being.

   Students at Salem are excited about the proximity of the new location to Salem. First year Kenzie Confer is among those who are looking forward to the store’s opening.

   “I feel that it’s new location will be more accessible for UNCSA and Salem College. I believe it will lessen the overcrowding at the current Fourth Street location, especially because this new location on Brookstown is more secluded,” says Confer. “I can’t wait for my new, cozy study spot.”
