Great bakery

McFarlan's is a must-visit when visiting Hendersonville. I have enjoyed all of the treats I have tried & the prices are reasonable. The Main St. location and tables out front make for a nice early morning breakfast spot.

Always fresh and delicious! Service is great. Very conveniently located on central Main Street. Hot chocolate was also great.

They are a decent bakery, but certainly no Underground Bakery by any means. However, their prices are lower and they have a larger selection. Of course that they are right on Main Street and one can go eat ones baked goods right outside on one of the sidewalk table and chairs is a plus as well.

No need for the "fast food' donut shops. McFarlane's is a must stop when in downtown Hendersonville. In addition to their fabulous donuts, one can indulge in cakes, cookies, muffins, and various other goodies. You will leave feeling like a long lost family member. A very satisfied family member.

I love walking into McFarlans! I am always greeted with the aroma of heaven and by smiling faces behind the counter. They have so much patience with me while I try to decide between all the delicious choices. I have tried several things there, each is better than the last. Donuts are always a fabulous way to start a day... More

My wife and I make a trip to Hendersonville a few times a year and we always go by McFarlans. This trip we got the white chocolate chunk cookies, blueberry and cream cookies and elephant ear. They were all so good. The best white chocolate chunk anywhere.

Excellent bakery with what seems like unlimited choices - cakes, muffins, donuts, pastries galore and Bear Claws. The wonderful aroma of fresh baked goods will entice you as you try to pass by. Very friendly service.

This is a great little bakery in the heart of downtown Hendersonville. The cinnamon buns are awesome and the cakes are beautiful, donuts are good. Snag a cup of coffee and a sweetie and head out to sit on a park bench on the sidewalk to enjoy the scenery and visit with the tourists. I did not give the bakery... More

You can WASTE your money at other bakery's such as grocery stores or super stores and save a couple of bucks and throw 60% of it away. OR you can go to McFarland's on main street and watch it dissapear, bought 2 cakes and a pie for the family Thanksgiving get together and all were GREAT!

I have had bread from here on several occasions. It is a downtown standard. The smells that erupt from here invite the most timid. There are many types of cookies cakes and special types even gluten free breads. Sandwiches are available on demand/made to order. I have something to look forward to.
