The cookies were okay but the selection seemed good. We tried a chocolate chip cookie and peanut butter cookie. The peanut butter cookie didn't have much flavor so I would probably pass on peanut butter next time. Although I am rating this average, I would give it another shot as it may be what I ordered. They have cookies, cake,... More

I went here for the first time based on other trip advisor reviews. I stopped in around 9:30am on Saturday. The bakery was busy. I wasn't able to get a good view of everything in the case (this is my only complaint/suggestion - create a line pattern that allows customers to view all the items before placing their order). When... More

Awesome baked goods - from breads to cakes to the most delicious almond macaroons ever! We have probably tried every cookie they make and they are all good! Service friendly and the owners also provide service for their customers and so it's just a friendly, delicious place to go when one has a sweet tooth! I can't imagine Hendersonville without... More

Still love this place. Introduced my daughter to it and she fell in love with an eclair. It was the first "real" eclair she ever tasted. After she tasted it, she ended up going back to make another purchase not once but twice. She said if the eclair was that good, everything else most likely would be too. As time... More

This is just an average bakery. If you think it's anything else you haven't travelled much in my opinion. They have a wide assortment and I've eaten here a few times. It's on main street and a visit is in order just to see what they have. The people are friendly and the prices good. But they use a lot... More

Best bakery I've ever been too! They have everything you could possibly want at mcfarlands. The smell from the street is amazing and pulls you in to taste.... But once inside it's too hard to choose. My family is from missouri, but it's tradition when we come to town to always stop in! We always have to order lots of... More

Mc Farlan's is the place to go for delicious baked goods. Donuts, fritters, cookies, pastries … all are delicious. We always buy something here for our out of town guests … and like as not they go back to purchase things for their trip home.

Walking along Main Street, I often find myself drawn into McFarlan's by the wonderful aroma of fresh baked breads and pastries. Their cookies are the real thing, not for those on a diet, and their breads have texture instead of air. It's not inexpensive because you're getting real ingredients and homemade products, fresh daily. It's a wonderful way to top... More

Only bakery on Main St. in Hendersonville and it's great!!! Everything, including the seven layer choclolate cake is made fresh, in-store by a real baker. Their selection of baked goods is thorough; donuts, decorated cookies and cupcakes, cinnamon rolls - Giant Cream Puffs, etc!!! They also take special orders, with advance notice and will pack up a box of whatever... More
