A walk thru the door is a step back in time!

Classic breads and pastries! The place looks and smells like the bakeries of my childhood. They use only the finest ingredients, and they stay busy all the time. NOTE: They are NOT open on Sunday or Monday. They also ha e outdoor seating!

My family went to this bakery and we got different items. We went back to where we were staying and we did a tasting of all of them. We were very impressed with the selection and quality of the bakery items. My favorites were the eclairs and the cinnamon roll. I would recommend this if you are in town. It... More

We went into the bakery to get some sweets. It all looked great. My wife ordered a cheesecake brownie and my mother-in-law some donuts. When we got to our car and opened the boxes, two of our three orders were wrong. The food is great, but the service is a little "ditzy".

Awesome bakery...my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The worst thing about the place is trying to decide what to get and how much can I get away with eating. Good thing I don't live near it!

My wife and I stopped by this bakery on a Saturday afternoon. It was awesome! Lots of cakes, cookies and sweets to choose from....makes the choice tough so try more than a few!

If it looks good, it's even better when you eat it! This bakery reminds me of a bakery from years ago. Their prices are fantastic! I can't recommend any one particular thing over another...it's all good.

I have not tried bakeries everywhere but over the last few years I have eaten pastries in Italy, France, Germany, and Spain. But I come to western North Carolina and find the McFarlan Bakery in Hendersonville. Now, I'm not a professional taster, but my Grandad was Master Baker of German descent. So pastry tasting is something natural for me! First... More

Great cookies but loaded with butter! Super sweet. You can't take too many of these. Wish they were open Mondays!
