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.

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.

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.

Excellent bakery...wonderful choices, try the Bear Claws or Gingerbread Man (both made the old fashioned way with great flavor). Excellent service. We went back twice in one day.
