McFarlan Bakery is a true gem. It is located right in Downtown Hendersonville. You are welcomed the moment you enter the door. The aromas let you know you are in a made from scratch bakery. The selection of items makes it so very hard to choose. There are cakes, pies, breads, donuts, cookies. The prices are reasonable and you can... More

The only bad parts are the tiny location,which sucks because it often gets busy.Its on mainstreet, so parking is hard to find,and some items seem a little over priced.But i still give it a 10/10. Delicious treats and you can buy small portions like just 1 cookie or one slice of cake. Friendly service.

Hard to choose...everything looks and smells delicious. A family bakery that focuses on great ingredients, standard-you-can-never-go-wrong as well as new items and wonderful informative customer service. Just tried one of their pies...holy cow!!!!

If you are watching your weight, just keep walking. Everything in this shop looks fresh and delicious. And the prices are reasonable. We bought Boston creme donuts, blueberry cake donuts, and date nut cookies. Yummy!!

I've been going here for years when I visit family. Every thing is exceptionally good and at a great price. I always take a danish ring home to freeze and enjoy later. Always great service.

What a wonderful gem in the middle of Hendersonville! In this day and age where most baked goods are purchased in the grocery store and are from ok to good but not over the top - McFarlan Bakery hits a home run. My biggest problem when visiting is narrowing down the selection. Most recently my order included - several Black... More

This family bakery starts from scratch and moves into fantastic. We needed some desert items for a family gathering. My daughter-in-law is an accomplished baker so ordinary wasn't going to get it. We had a hard time choosing from all the possible choices, but we finally settled on four different things for our dinner. All were delicious and my-daughter-in-law was... More

Taste just like grandma use to make. I have never had anything bad from here. You will not regret eating here except the calories aren't removed.

I've been going to McFarlan's for 50+ years, and it is as good now as it was when I was a teenager: Great!! Real doughnuts with a great yeast flavor, unlike the doughnuts at the chain bakeries which are all sugar and no flavor. The glazed doughnuts are without a doubt the best I have ever tasted. Everything McFarlan's sells... More

It was really hard to choose from all those delicious cakes, cookies and more. The sweets that we bought did hardly make it to our home as we could not stop eating along our long way home.
