“They do have the best buns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

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 on the outside and soft inside. Their apple monkey bread is (very) sweet and sticky, but very good if you don't mind sweet bread. All the other bread are really good. Many love their cupcakes. We talked about trying their cupcakes. But every time we go there, we always ended up getting something else we want more.

They also have the best service. All the staff there are very friendly. You can call ahead to reserve baked goods to be picked up later.

“Average breakfast sandwhich...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

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.

“As the name implies...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Nice stop in Shirlington for a pastry and coffee. The croissants are flaky and crisp. We always enjoy picking up a snack at Best Buns, then walking around Shirlington.
