“For bread lovers & to satisfy your sweet tooth”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Walking along Main Street, I often find myself drawn into McFarlan's by the wonderful aroma of fresh baked breads and pastries. Their cookies are the real thing, not for those on a diet, and their breads have texture instead of air. It's not inexpensive because you're getting real ingredients and homemade products, fresh daily. It's a wonderful way to top off a walk, or after a lunch at one of the other local eateries.

“You Must Go Here!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Only bakery on Main St. in Hendersonville and it's great!!! Everything, including the seven layer choclolate cake is made fresh, in-store by a real baker. Their selection of baked goods is thorough; donuts, decorated cookies and cupcakes, cinnamon rolls - Giant Cream Puffs, etc!!! They also take special orders, with advance notice and will pack up a box of whatever you want on the spot. And by shopping here you are supporting a locally owned and operated business that has been around a long time.

“wow---wow---wow--wow---”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

So hard to turn away from an armload of truly fresh-from-the-oven baked goods...melt in your mouth donuts, eclairs made fresh daily on premises, famous apple fritters that really have apples in the batter, cookies beyond your imagination, cupcakes to delight every age, fresh baked pies, and a staff so patient that they should be saints ! Always a crowd here, but it moves fast and worth the few minutes so you have time to browse the glass enclosed assorted choices. Parking is a big problem downtown, but well worth the walk from the parking lots behind Main Street--where McFarlan's is located. One of our favorites to visit when in town.

“love the donuts!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

They still make them like they did 40 years ago when i first had their donuts--delicious, yeasty, light, perfect. I haven't lived in H'ville for 25 years, but stop by every time i visit.
