Best Buns, you are my downfall :)

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!

Nice variety of bakery items, some fine sandwiches, excellent coffees, & superb staff. I have been going to this bakery/coffee shop for many years - consistency, courtesy, professionalism, & good food always.

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.

Best buns is phenomenal when it comes to creating breads and pastries. It's no wonder why a line streams to the door in the early morning hours. A quick tip for you early risers: take advantage of the ample seating in the adjacent Carlye Grand (also an amazing restaurant). A favorite activity for my wife and I is to grab... More

We ate here for 5 straight days it was so good. this place was very busy each morning, but they share seating areas with The Carlyle so you aren't cramped. We tried each of the sandwiches, different pastries and liked them all.

Brioche is extremely hard to find in the DC area, but Best Buns has it. It is so buttery that the butter will soak through the bag. (Get it wrapped in plastic.) About three times a year, I drive the 75 miles to buy a loaf. Then I freeze it and dole it out a slice at a time. Ah,... More

The location in Shirlington, VA could not be better. It is located right next door to the Carlyle Grand Restaurant which is also a part of the sensational Great American Chain. Best Buns does a strong carryout business and the baguettes are my favorite breads. There are also sandwiches and soups. You can enjoy these right in front of the... More
