Awesome bakery...my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The worst thing about the place is trying to decide what to get and how much can I get away with eating. Good thing I don't live near it!

My wife and I stopped by this bakery on a Saturday afternoon. It was awesome! Lots of cakes, cookies and sweets to choose from....makes the choice tough so try more than a few!

If it looks good, it's even better when you eat it! This bakery reminds me of a bakery from years ago. Their prices are fantastic! I can't recommend any one particular thing over another...it's all good.

I have not tried bakeries everywhere but over the last few years I have eaten pastries in Italy, France, Germany, and Spain. But I come to western North Carolina and find the McFarlan Bakery in Hendersonville. Now, I'm not a professional taster, but my Grandad was Master Baker of German descent. So pastry tasting is something natural for me! First... More

Great cookies but loaded with butter! Super sweet. You can't take too many of these. Wish they were open Mondays!

It has been a couple of years since I was last here. All I can say is that it is as good as we remembered. I highly recommend the eclair. You will not be disappointed. Service was extremely quick and friendly.

We always thought that the best apple fritters we've had were from Basha's in Phoenix. McFarlan's fritters are their equal. The atmosphere of the bakery will bring you back to your youth. The aroma is wonderful and the selection is large. Definitely worth it to load up on pastries when on Main Street in Hendersonville.

This place has the freshest and largest assortment of donuts, pastries, streudel, cookies, and pies. It is too hard to only pick one item from their many selections! The place smells delicious!! Only wish it were open longer hours.
