A Sweet Treat in Hendersonville!

While you're touring the shops downtown in Hendersonville, don't forget to stop at McFarlan Bakery. The goodies here are definite eye candy and will make your mouth water! Everything looks delicious from pies, cakes, cookies, donuts, you name it. I tried an elephant ear and it was a tasty treat!

Although there was variety, it claims to be an "old fashioned bakery." Perhaps I had my childhood memory of an "old fashioned bakery" in mind. I was disappointed that I did not find the bakery items that I remember as a child. What we did purchase was good.

Best Bakery!! Small and crowded but well worth it! Walk in order and leave with a box full of amazing goodies. Black and white and Chinese Cookie my favorite. No where to sit, but that shouldn't stop you from visiting

These ladies know how to bake! We had the best blueberry muffins EVER! Bought several other goodies for the grand kids. The aroma inside the place was intoxicating as well.

Lovely and tasty cakes. Cute cookies in different sizes for children. Expansive selection of breads and roll made daily. Nice place for a sweet treat and coffee while shopping downtown.

The experience in this bakery was the best. The selection was immense, the quality was nothing short of delicious, and the service was exceptional. We were asked all about ourselves and our stay, given advice about what not to miss and generally made to feel welcome and well taken care of. Even though there was a long line, there were... More
