“Been the best bakery since I was a little girl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Still love this place. Introduced my daughter to it and she fell in love with an eclair. It was the first "real" eclair she ever tasted. After she tasted it, she ended up going back to make another purchase not once but twice. She said if the eclair was that good, everything else most likely would be too. As time passed and other items were demolished, she declared she had made the right call. Hopefully I'll get to have a McFarlan treat next time we visit H'ville. An eclair and what else?........to be determined.

“Amazing? Not really.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This is just an average bakery. If you think it's anything else you haven't travelled much in my opinion. They have a wide assortment and I've eaten here a few times. It's on main street and a visit is in order just to see what they have. The people are friendly and the prices good. But they use a lot of sugar. Too much for my taste. Maybe it is a great bakery for a small town. But it would just be average in most big cities.

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Best bakery I've ever been too! They have everything you could possibly want at mcfarlands. The smell from the street is amazing and pulls you in to taste.... But once inside it's too hard to choose. My family is from missouri, but it's tradition when we come to town to always stop in! We always have to order lots of the salt riding bread to take home!!! Love family traditions

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Mc Farlan's is the place to go for delicious baked goods. Donuts, fritters, cookies, pastries … all are delicious. We always buy something here for our out of town guests … and like as not they go back to purchase things for their trip home.
