This bakery is the best bakery that I've ever been. The yellow cake with chocolate icing is so delicious! It has a lot of layers and is simply the best! The donut holes are to die for too....so yummy! The date squares, apply fritters, bear claws and brownies are absolutely amazing. The workers are very friendly and super nice, too.... More

Just walking by this hplace is a treat to the senses! The scents and displayed treats...you can NOT miss this bakery where everything is made and baked fresh. Doesn't come any better than this! Just be warned: It's almost impossible to decide what to order!

We had the old fashion cinnamon rolls, I thought all cinnamon rolls were similar, these are a cut above excellent,they were so moist, and flavorful. We bought 6 for the road, and are looking forward to going back to try their other pastries/ cakes, they have a large selection, very reasonable priced too.

A little fat boy went here 60 years ago to get a coveted cream horn. Now an older fat boy goes here to get incredible bakery items, having not been here in 60 years. Gee, they are fantastic! Have not missed a beat. Incredible!

An old fashioned bakery that serves up some delicious treats! The creme horns are my favorite! But honestly, nothing I've tried was bad!

I was in this bakery on Friday of labor day weekend, we bought pastries, cookies, cheese straws and a few other items. While in there I saw a red velvet cake and my husband loves them so I ordered one to be picked up on Saturday on the way home. When I got home and fixed my husband and I... More

To put it bluntly, I avoid going in McFarlan Bakery as much as I can. That's not a bad review but quite the opposite. I have to watch my blood sugar, and the bakery goodies are just too tempting. I limit my visits but always enjoy anything I get there. An old-fashioned made-from-scratch bakery, the items are American, not European,... More

There is not a bad choice in this traditional bakery where everything is made from scratch. I would recommend their creme horns, choclate covered wagons and their cheese straws.
