As a long-time diner at the neighboring Carlyle restaurant (which spawned Best Buns years ago) I always enjoyed the baked goods that came to Carlyle. I recently decided to pop into Best Buns for an early dinner to go, bypassing Carlyle. I ended up with a ham/salomi sandwich and clam chowder. The sandwich's intended bread was sold out for the...

Went here for lunch on Sunday afternoon. With the amount of people coming in, I find it mind-boggling that there are upwards of 8 staff working at once. 4 would be more than enough. Nevertheless, the food is fresh and delicious. The store brews Starbucks coffee so you know what to expect. Good location with outside seating too

We grabbed some pastries here on a Sunday morning before heading home. The danishes were light and airy and very tasty. We got a sticky bun, a cinnamon raisin danish and a fruit danish. No complaints by anyone and the prices were fair. They try to move the line quickly so make sure you know what you want when it... More

I recently visited the Best Buns bakery in Shirlington, and clearly my expectation were set too high. My impression apriori was that the bakery also doubled as a sandwich shop where one could order a sandwich and enjoy it on the premises. However, the shop is actually quite small with only limited counter and outdoor seating. We ordered a chicken... More

The rolls looked great. Had a breakfast sandwich, was freshly made. Get there early, always a line but has a great staff to get you on your way.

It's hard to resist the wonderful assortment of artisan breads and pastries, but, they offer delicious lobster bisque everyday that is a luxurious treat. It is the Sam soup offered at the Carlyle next door but less expensive. Seating is limited but we bring it home a lot, especially if we are resting a bad back! Their cupcakes are THE... More

This is literally the best bakery in the world. I haven't had anything here that isn't absolutely delicious. Even things I don't usually eat or like are amazing. The sandwiches are the best ever!
