Best Bread Bakery in NOVA

My wife and I swing by Best Buns every couple of weeks to stock up on their excellent bread, which we freeze. While we're there, we usually grab coffees and a couple of sandwiches for lunch. The bread is always terrific. The sandwiches are simple and fresh and the service is outstanding. The... read more

Years ago when Best Buns first opened, the bread was very good. Many wholegrain breads and rolls. Now, like so many DC area bakeries, the bread is just ho hum. Saddest of all, the buns that they supply to Carlyle for their excellent burgers are no better than Wonderbread. Too bad. Perhaps the sweets are still good as the other... More

I live in Shirlington and I have to have one of Best Buns' Double Chocolate Chip Cookies at least once a week. This place is awesome for amazing fresh-baked bread (try the baguette!). They also do a killer chicken salad sandwich and their breakfast sandwiches are indulgent (you could split) and delicious. Love this place.

We were staying at a hotel around the corner in Shirlington and stopped in one morning for breakfast. There was about a 10 minute wait but it was worth it. I had the ham, egg and cheese croissant and a berry Danish. Both were delicious. They are connected to the restaurant next door and because it was not open for... More

Fantastic baked goods and very friendly staff. I love this place, and so does everyone I know. I'm not a Starbucks fan, and that's the coffee they sell. Aside from that, it's heaven. All you folks staying at the Hilton around the corner: take note!

Everything I've had from here is simply incredible. Breakfast pastries and breads, cupcakes, lunch sandwiches, and coffees are all excellent! Super friendly service. Usually busy during the morning and lunchtime rush...guess other people enjoy their menu as much as me!

This place is own by the Great American Restaurant Group... which owns the restaurant right next door to it, the Carlyle (formerly the Carlyle Grand). If you've ever eaten at the Great American Restaurant, then you've had their bread and know that it's really amazing. The ozzy rolls they serve at the restaurant are like donut holes but larger and... More

When I want a yummy cupcake, I make the drive to Best Buns in Arlington. I've never been disappointed with the cupcakes or the service.
