This bakery has been here a long time. I have always since childhood gotten the Chinese chocolate cookie which is a giant sugar cookie with Chocolate in the middle. They have many more delicious cook and cake treats!

An incredible selection of cookies and pastries. Sugar cookies with frosting flowers, eclairs, elephant ears, and cinnamon rolls .... Don't get me started in the cinnamon rolls. Even the black and whites, though untraditional, are tasty. Don't miss this.

We visited McFarlan's and all five of us had a great experience, we are ready to return. We purchased chocolate covered cake donuts, cheese danish, and various cookies, all were fabulous! The food was great and the service was awesome - friendly, helpful staff. We will definitely return to the bakery in the near future.

One of the best bakeries we've been to - order anything and you won't be disappointed. We chose the apple fritter n bear claw. Mmmmm

He thinks they make the best creme horns. Very fresh and great tasting creme inside. Wish they stayed open longer so we could pick up goodies later in the evening. Check them out you will love them too. They are right on Main Street and easy to find. Parking however leaves something to be desired.

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
