Great food in Arlington

We ate at Best Buns and found the food to be very good and the staff to be friendly and top notch. There are more restaurants in the corporate family if you're staying elsewhere in Va.

I am a huge fan of carbs in general but generally I try to avoid plain bread because usually it's just not worth it. This place is the kind of place where you leave and think my god- how could I ever give up bread entirely?! While I adore all the things here- the herb muenster, monkey bread and olive... More

Best Buns serves outstanding, freshly baked Pastries. Their Olive Loaf Bread is incredible. Absolutely no comparison in quality and service.

We were on our summer food and history tour family vacation and stopped by here. We received terrific service with very friendly staff. Ordered some cheeseburgers and double cheeseburgers (a couple with bacon!) and a danish. All VERY delicious on their fresh and uinque buns and the danish was absolutely out of this world delicious. Wish we had a place... More

A great place to pick up lunch on the go. Delicious sandwiches on fresh baked breads. They have the best cupcake in town. Well worth the wait in line.

From out of town and unclear about menu options, where to seat, if bring food. No condiments offered. I told the guy manning register I was from out of town and visiting and really lacked proactive help. Coffee was not hot, lunch was okay - hamburger. I would guess breakfast is better. Bundt cake above average.

Starbucks coffee, amazing egg & bacon sandwiches on huge slabs of farmhouse bread, authentic bagels, iced lemon baby bundt cakes, star-shaped delicious fruit scones, huge flavorful muffins of all kinds.. And once you place your order, you can sit at a table (inside or outside) and they'll bring you your food. Great little neighborhood, too. Very reasonable prices.

Out of the three days I was there, I went here twice for breakfast. Breakfast Sandwiches were good, but the REAL treat is the sticky buns (along w/ a cup of Starbucks coffee). I consider myself a sticky bun/cinnamon roll contisure and these are the absolute best I have ever had. Get here early as a line seems to start... More
