I spent a summer in Paris. Best Buns croissants are better! Have not had better in the U.S. Oh, and the bread is great. Fabulous staff.

Wonderful cupcakes, scones, breads (especially 2 raisin pecan bread)....lots of the good stuff featured in their restaurant next door. Cheeseburgers look good and are popular although I have not tried them. Weekends are crowded! Don't forget the dog biscuit for your best buddy ;-)

I have been searching for an egg sandwich since moving from NY. This place is delicious and as close as I think it will get! The cookies are also amazing.

Best Buns is great stop for loaves of bread & rolls, lunch, breakfast and/or a sweet treat to take home, like the fantastic cupcakes. It is a little out of the way for us to pick up a loaf of bread, but worth the trip. The Irish soda bread is studded with raisins & really moist, unlike many soda breads.

From the moment you enter the shop, the smell of bread fills the room. I really love their oversized-cupcakes and leave-shaped rosmary epee bread!

I came for my addiction, the raisin bread. Hadn't been to Shirlington for a long time and I was eager to get in there. OMG, I didn't know they have burgers to go. Now I have to come back. But this time I indulged in the bread, yes that great bread that fuels appetites at all of the Great American... More

Be prepared to stand in line! It is that good and reputable. If you arrive early enough, you might get seating in the Carlyle (attached) but after 10:00 am you're on your own in there is extremely limited window seating. In warm weather they have outdoor seating. If nothing else, eat in your car or standing--it's that good!

Decadent Breakfast-Sandwich and Fresh Baked Bread Lovers' Paradise! Every time we really want good breads, it is now habit to ensure making the trip to this place. If you of other bakeries, think again... the selection, and the good size of their baked goods list alone will make your head spin and mouth water. But the true test is that... More

The breakfast sandwiches here are really good! They offer a variety of delicious breads and will slice the loaf for you. I'm addicted to their apple walnut harvest muffin and my dog loves their doggie biscuits.

Supplier to Carlyle, you can order excellent breakfast sandwiches such as bacon & egg on their outstanding breads and croissants. The chocolate croissants are outstanding, as are the muffins. Lunch is a pleasant surprise, I've had the black angus burger and the roast chicken salad, both excellent. Nice to dine al fresco at this establishment and avoid the noisier establishments... More
