Great Bakey attached to really nice restaurant

Best Buns has a huge selection of freshly made baked goods, sandwiches, salads and coffee. In the morning you can sit in part of the attached Carlyle Grand Restaurant. Very nice.

Since I live nearby, I buy bread and maybe a company dessert, but others are buying coffee and treats. I love everything they bake.

We stopped at Best Buns to pick up cheese Danish, muffins, and bagels to go. They were for our business meeting. The service was quick and accurate.

Randomly stopped here for a quick lunch while driving through Arlington. The sandwiches were extremely fresh, from the meats, the toppings to the bread itself. The breads are also flavorful and appropriate sized. Large menu selection. Pleasantly surprised that they also serve Starbucks. Sufficient staff working to ensure orders are filled in merely a few minutes. Stop by if you... More

Based on the reviews I was excited to try this place for lunch. First off, no hamburgers on the weekend. Secondly, the sandwiches are pre-made and pretty standard (think airport stand). Finally, there is nothing interesting about them and that includes the bread which is ok but certainly nothing special. There are just 4-5 stool seats.

We stopped for breakfast one Saturday morning after seeing how high the ratings were on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. We tried some apple monkeybread, coffee, and each had our own David's A.M. Drumroll breakfast sandwich. Everything we tasted was great and when they have the seating available in the Carlyle next door, it makes for a truly great... More

We heard so much about it, we had to go. Pretty much one of the worst cafe au lait I've ever had. Normal ham and cheese croissant. Best buns. And then heading to the airport got $175 ticket for speeding. Still, a great a Thanksgiving! 😊

We ordered pastries, sandwiches, and hamburgers and wow!! What freshness!! The best hamburger I have ever eaten - bread nice and soft with a little crunch on the outside. I typically don't eat bacon because it is too fatty, but the bacon was crispy and didn't taste or look "fatty". Pasta salad creamy without an overwhelming mayo taste. Staff very,... More

I have been here many times to buy coffee, breads, cookies etc and always have left satisfied. This time we had biked down to the area and stopped for a cappuccino. We ordered the small size and wondered why it took so long for the order to be ready as it was minimally busy. The answer was that the barrista... More
