Great rotating bakery selection

Love the breads here- different loaves are baked on different days (I get my brioche here and then freeze it). Their mango chicken salad is a surprisingly tasty non-bakery item. Some outdoor seating, a great place in Shirlington.

I only stopped by here for some breakfast. They serve Starbucks coffee (although I don't think they accept the mobile app or cards, so you'll have to pay with cash or a credit/debit card), and have some great bread like everyone said. My only issue was that they didn't toast the bagel or put the cream cheese on there for... More

We had the egg sandwich. It was sooooo good. I couldn't eat the whole thing. Would definitely go back for a quick breakfast.

The baguettes and croissants are among the best available in the Washington area. Best buns pastries which I have tried are freshly made and tasty. My dog loves the dog biscuits.

My husband and I lived in Europe for a year and came back on the hunt for the best baguette in DC (and America). Best Buns has arguably the best fresh baked bread in the DC area and possibly the best baguette in America. The EPI's are a pull-apart version of the baguette and is equally as good. The cupcakes...

While the food is pretty good, I find the selection a little limited, especially for the salads. I was also disappointed that their sandwiches are not made to order, but are ready made, which I imagine is ideal for local business workers. All in all, in a pinch I would go there for food to go, but it otherwise would... More

We don't go to Best Buns Bread as often as we like because it is far from us a little difficult to park. But we do go to Sweet Water Tavern and Artie often. These restaurants and Best Buns are owned by the same company and they serve Best Buns' bread. We love their poblano pepper and cheese bread. Crusty... More

Came here on a buy Saturday. Although I do like their bread varieties, the breakfast I ordered was only average. Sticky bun - simple and yummy Egg & cheese croissant - very cheesy but very salty

Great spot for fresh bread, buns, and coffee. Usually a line in the morning (but well worth the wait) Outdoor seating in spring, summer and fall.

Everything here is fabulous, from fresh breads to baked goods to the most delicious breakfast sandwiches. I go every time I'm in Arlington.
