Good as I remember

It has been a couple of years since I was last here. All I can say is that it is as good as we remembered. I highly recommend the eclair. You will not be disappointed. Service was extremely quick and friendly.

We always thought that the best apple fritters we've had were from Basha's in Phoenix. McFarlan's fritters are their equal. The atmosphere of the bakery will bring you back to your youth. The aroma is wonderful and the selection is large. Definitely worth it to load up on pastries when on Main Street in Hendersonville.

This place has the freshest and largest assortment of donuts, pastries, streudel, cookies, and pies. It is too hard to only pick one item from their many selections! The place smells delicious!! Only wish it were open longer hours.

Can't decide where all of the hype is coming from. Looks like a nice grocery store bakery, but certainly nothing spectacular. Compare to Well-Bred in Weaverville and you'll see what I'm talking about !

As soon as I walked in the door, the delicious aroma took me back to when I was little, and my mom would take me into the local bakery for a goodie. The cream horn, black and white cookie, muffin, and tea cookies were terrific. I got a variety and tried over a couple of days. When in Hendersonville, NC,... More

We're from NY and have been to a lot of bakeries in large and small cities. This is a special place and is obviously a local favorite. They make cannolis and other exotic desserts. Plenty of cakes, pies, etc. and you can buy little items under a dollar and larger items over $25. Lots of flexibility here. Wait staff is... More

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 a few loaves and freeze... 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
