Best Baked Goods Around!

It's easy to get a "sugar high" at McFarlan's Bakery! They have all kinds of baked goodies - cakes, cookies, muffins and much more. This bakery reminds me of the bakeries that we had before the in-store bakeries. There baked goods are the best!

I consider myself a pastry, cake , pie and cookie expert. That being said, I have high expectations when I visit a new bakery. I come from a family in Boston that goes back 3 generations Italian bakers. I may need to move to Hendersonville! This place does it right!

I took my son there for a treat. He's nonverbal, but the look on his face said enough. I bought a doughnut for me and a cookie for him. He sat quietly, devoured his cookie and took my hand and drug me back in for one more. Normally, I limit his sugar, but they were so good, we had round... More

This is one top class bakery. When you walk you can gain pounds just by the smell. YUM. Everything we tasted was yummy. there are several places outside to sit and enjoy. OH remember closed on Monday.

McFarlan's is the real deal. Breads, cookies, cakes and pastries baked fresh - on site - daily. This place is clearly a labor of love. They're not all fancy schmancy and tasteless, they are delicious. The local realtor pointed us in their direction when my husband spoke of his desire for a really good donut. They have them in spades.... More

The sights and smells were enticing. Since we were going to be out for a while we didn't want perishables so opted for an assortment of cookies . They were soggy and just not great. I might try something else from the bakery but not the cookies.

Unbelievable selection of baked goods that, based on our sampling, are excellent. Hard to beat an old fashioned great bakery... from the smells to all the eye candy pastries.

It's all good! We come here for all our homemade baking needs! They will do custom birthday cakes for you if it's not in the case. Again everything is awesome! Thank you!

We were told this was a must when visiting Hendersonville. Our friends were so kind to take us there and show us why they love going there the minute they arrive in town. The staff was kind and genuine. I ordered a box full of several pastries and returned a couple days later for a refill. The second trip proved... More
