This is one bakery that has so many baked goods that looks so appetizing you want to try a little of everything, and you can. they sell by the dozen or by the piece, as well with bigger baked goods , you can buy a whole cake or a half. There is so much help behind the counter you might... More

This bakery has about anything your heart desires in the line of gooey, rich, decadent, etc. goodies to make your mouth water. We come to this bakery every time we are in Hendersonville and it always has something new and delicious. After one trip, you will add this to your list of places to eat in Hendersonville.

Stopped in on a whim and everything's looked and smelled so amazing that it was so hard to choose! We ended up picking up a few brownies, a ginger molasses cookie, and another cookie with strawberry - all were delicious! The fresh bread loaves looked amazing as did the cakes and pies and treats. Wish we lived closer!!!

I'm particular about my doughnuts! The cream filled doughnut satisfied my craving and was "calorie worthy"! Thank you, McFarlan Bakery Joan G

Now this is what a bakery should offer... and what the baked items should taste like! Beautiful selection. We remembered this bakery from a visit 15 years ago!

Don't get me wrong, the baked goods at McFarlan's are fantastic, but their customer service - not so much. I have been "overlooked" one too many times at the counter, and have watched people who have come in after me get acknowledged before me, so I will no longer be going here. However, there will be a new donut shop... More

Good stock offerings, they don't like to go outside those selections though as we've gotten funny looks twice in one year when asking about making other baked goods. And perhaps because of main street leases prices, they are a little high for this area - almost big city like Greenville or Charlotte

What can I say...this bakery it a classic. ..probably the only one left of its kind in America. Try the almond strudel...fantastic! They have a full complement of baked goods from cookies to cakes and pies and muffins and breads. The best place in town if you want something sweet. They also have decent (and inexpensive) coffee. You can pick... More
