Saw this while visiting with my son and daughter-in-law, knew we had to pop in. Oh my goodness! There is something for everyone’s sweet tooth! There was always a line, whether going in morning or afternoon but worth it! We returned a couple of times...and tried different things - delicious! Our kids even added it to their must do list for anyone that visited them.More

McFarlan Bakery came highly recommended and certainly didn't disappoint!!! We dropped by late yesterday afternoon for a cookie, which was delicious! This morning, braving the rain, I drove down to retrieve some fresh donuts. As expected, the donuts were awesome. I arrived just after 8:00...am to find a friendly staff and a nice assortment.More

This bakery is a must stop when in Hendersonville!! When you walk in the door, it’s like stepping back in time. They are truly an old fashion bakery. Very large assortment of cookies, pies, cakes, pastries and breads. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We...purchased way too many things for two people, but are enjoying the extra sweet treatsMore

I was on Main eating lunch nearby and had to try out this old fashion bakery where everything is made from scratch which is rare to find. The smell alone was enticing enough to come inside. After lunch we went inside to buy a few...small treats. They had everything you could image from a bakery. If you are looking for an authentic bakery this place is a must for anyone living in the Asheville area of visiting. Historic Hendersonville is a great area to explore.More

My mom, sister, niece and I were returning from a lovely trip to Asheville and I had looked up bakeries, since we don't have much where we are. There was a festival going on outside, so parking was a little difficult, the place was packed...with locals and visitors, but it was the BEST stop. There are many, many beautiful glass cases of many different kinds of amazing bakery goodness and they do it all! Not only breads (we tried the salt rising bread, and it does make excellent toast), pastries, cookies, pies, cakes, cupcakes and doughnuts!!! It was fortunate the line was long because it gave us time to peruse the glass cases, write down what we wanted, then not stand like fools once a server was ready because we wanted it all. Everything was wonderful!More

During a visit to downtown for the vintage market, I noticed people on the streets with donuts that looked wonderful. The bakery was busy but worth the wait. Large variety of treats and I was excited to see a strawberry pie in the case! The...donuts and éclair were fresh and delicious. After a day of adventuring, I heated a slice of the strawberry pie - it was better than I could have imagined! Will definitely be back. :)More
