WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — One of the oldest homes in Winston-Salem is now offering a new dining option for people in the city.

Founders Restaurant has quickly become a hot spot since opening in late 2022. It sits inside the historic Shaffner Inn. The home was built right outside Old Salem in 1907. 

Over the years, it’s been a private home, a bed and breakfast and now it’s an eight-room inn.  Founders Restaurant serves classic breakfast and brunch items as well as some dazzling drinks which include colorful, sparkling mimosa. Founders Restaurant has become so popular, there’s usually a wait on the weekends. 

While diners wait for their table, they can take a tour of the historic home and even see a mantle built back in 1776.
