Bread, too.

The sweet stuff is to die for. There is nothing better than what they make here in their local bakery-from "scratch". Nothing you can want or imagine that is not found here. But try their breads and rolls too. We highly recommend the salt rising bread. Hard to find except in central KY. We buy... read more

My friend and I shared a very nice dinner across Main St. at Mezzaluna, then felt the need for a tiny bit of sweetness for dessert. So we walked into McFarlan Bakery and felt as if we'd stepped into a long-ago place and time. The mingled fragrances were absolutely heavenly--and so comforting. We ordered a cake doughnut, a molasses cookie,... More

I've visited McFarland's bakery since 1981. Their quality has never waivered! Their doughnuts are made from real ingredients not a bunch of shortening fried up! Also their pastries, cookies and breads will keep you coming back for more. Visit them soon and you will discover what you have been missing!!

I have been to McFarland's many times and have not found anything that tasted bad. I have to avoid going there to not become the next Buddah! Seriously, they have a wide variety of confections and all are good. We enjoyed the cake and cookies. The selection keeps us coming back much too often. They have a pecan pie that... More

This is a wonderful old bakery that reminds me of the bakeries that I went to when I was a kid. Great bakery treats and customer-friendly service.

I knew the minute we pulled open the door that this was a great place! The first thing that hits your senses is the tantalizing aroma off of hot, freshly baked breads, cakes,and pastries. It was hard to decide what to get! The employees waited patiently while we explored and debated what to purchase. We left with fresh bake sourdough... More

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.
