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

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!

The bread, sandwiches and coffee here were absolutely delicious. Wish we lived closer and could come here more often.

I have made special trips to Shirlington to visit Best Buns Bread Company for years. I don't know why Alexandria seems to have so few excellent bakery/coffee places. With the exception of Firehook, this bakery is alone of its kind in the area. It has numerous bread offerings. I am a big fan of their Challah on Fridays and of... More

Best Buns continues to amaze me -- I go back again and again. A full range of breads, pastries and muffins along with a choice of breakfast sandwiches is hard to pass up on most mornings. The coffee is freshly roasted and very good. A cordial and enthusiastic counter staff brings the morning alive with their smiles and warm hellos.... More

I love this place for breakfast and other fresh baked treats. Everything as you would hope is super fresh. By far the best breakfast in Arlington. The value can not be beat either. Look forward to coming back.
