Awesome old school bakery. I walked out with a box full and a lemon cake and only spent $35. I love elephant ears and they had them!!!

There is nothing like the smell or taste of fresh made deserts, and McFarlian's is superior. It is so rare to find a bakery that still makes everything from scratch. There is nothing that does not taste amazing here. Just walk past the front and smell the goodness.

McFarlan's Bake Shop is wonderful. I've had the pecan pie (best I have ever tasted), blueberry pie, scotch tea cookies, key lime cookies, gingerbread men and the lemon squares. Highly recommend! Delicious!

This bakery looks and smells delicious! They provide a variety of baked treats: cookies, donuts, elephant ears, cakes, and all are yummy! I had a blueberry and cream cookie, a McFarlan original recipe. I would suggest stopping by for a fresh baked treat while downtown!

Best bakery in the area. The selection is extensive. Their applesauce bread is a staple in my home. It freezes well. Their cookies appeal to children. They have dainty pastries for all occasions. A must go place every time I go to town.

This bakery reminded me of the bakeries we would go to in CT for pastries, cakes, donuts, cookies, and fresh breads when I was younger. When I opened the door and walked in, the smell was wonderful. I had the bear claw and I was not disappointed, it was delicious. You can also order coffee to go with your goodies.... More

The smell is still exactly the same as I remember when I was a child. So many choices and everything is so, so good. Definitely can't go wrong at McFarlan's!

Stepping into McFarlan's Bakery is like stepping into the midwest bakery of my childhood. The donuts, cookies and bread are especially good. Decades later, alas, I must curb my intake of too many sweets like this. That won't stop me from dipping into McFarlan's on a regular basis for a delicious little treat. Go and enjoy!
