this is an old time bakery filled with sweets, what else? I have tried several things over the years and while they all look tasty, nothing ever lived up to the expectation. It's a Hendersonville landmark which is the only reason I gave it an average review, and not because the baked items are so great.

Bakery is average with sugary icings instead of butter cream. The pastries are too doughy for me but I was raised in NY/NJ where pastry is a generational business.

They make the absolute best eclairs and I have traveled the world. What a gem on a cute old town Main Street. You can smell the delicious aromas on the sidewalk! There is such an array of goodies that it is really hard to choose. Would love to return for Christmas desserts. Definitely recommend.

Just happened to walk by and saw this gem. Walked inside to a most wonderful aroma.,,,, Had to buy something to take home. I am not a big cookie fan, but a HUGE fan of pastries. Purchased the almond and apple strudel and of course a traditional Bear Claw (darling bears all over Main Street). Most wonderful pastries I have... More

I always judge a bakery by it's strudel. Here, the "fresh" strawberry was filled with Shoney's gel goo and jam with a pittance of recognizable fruit halves. The apple was better, but both crusts were tougher than the best I've had.

When you walk into the bakery in historic downtown Hendersonville you will be speechless. This bakery has every baked good you could desire. All the items are made from scratch since their beginning in the 30's. We tried many items. Cookies, donuts, pastries. All were excellent. My only disappointment was they don't sell pie by the slice. The prices were... More

McFarlan's is a must do on your visit to Hendersonville. They have everything you would imagine in a bakery. We recommend the bear claws.

McFarlan's bakery makes everything from scratch. We have eaten cakes and other pastry at this bakery in our past visits to Hendersonville.. I could not pass the bakery without going in for a purchase. I purchased glaze donuts and a Bavarian cream donut. These donuts were the best I have ever tasted. My husband loved the glaze donuts. Be sure... More
