McFarlan's is amazing. Many pastries, cakes, cookies, breads and they are all fresh and with possible exception of some cookies are made on site. I am not exaggerating --nor do I work for McFarlan Bakery -- but it was a factor in my decision to settle in Hendersonville. Nothing like an old style bakery to take the grand kids to... More

They make the best bakery items in the area. They use all natural ingredients. It is always busy but they get to the customers in a timely manner. It is the best kept secret in Hendersonville, NC.

This is a definite stop for people visiting downtown Hendersonville. Everything I have tried is delicious and it all looks wonderful. Their cinnamon rolls are dynamite!

Yes, yes, folks, McFarlan may be rated within the top five restaurants in Hendersonville, but you do know that it's not really a restaurant, at least not for most of us. Maybe it is, however, for those of you interesting in developing a serious metabolic disorder, but not as I say, not for most of us. So dessert it is,... More

This was an amazing bakery! First, the smells coming from it caused me to pause and just take it all in. The appearance of all of those pies, cakes, and beautiful pastries was beautiful. We tried the bear claws, Boston cream, and blueberry turnovers. It was all delicious!! The personnel were all personable and most friendly. We came by the... More

While you're touring the shops downtown in Hendersonville, don't forget to stop at McFarlan Bakery. The goodies here are definite eye candy and will make your mouth water! Everything looks delicious from pies, cakes, cookies, donuts, you name it. I tried an elephant ear and it was a tasty treat!

Although there was variety, it claims to be an "old fashioned bakery." Perhaps I had my childhood memory of an "old fashioned bakery" in mind. I was disappointed that I did not find the bakery items that I remember as a child. What we did purchase was good.

Best Bakery!! Small and crowded but well worth it! Walk in order and leave with a box full of amazing goodies. Black and white and Chinese Cookie my favorite. No where to sit, but that shouldn't stop you from visiting
