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

This is one of my favorite places to stop for a quick breakfast sandwich, pastry, or desert! I'll even make a special trip into shirlington just for a treat on occasion. And the staff is GREAT! It's hard to find a place that greets you with a friendly smile around here!

Have been going to Best Buns for years - excellent with superior food service employees. Always go shortly after opening in order to park in front.

A week or so ago, had an early morning meeting, so I decided to pickup some pastries at Best Buns. Got some pastries, cupcakes and the Monkey/Apple Monkey Bread. I have hosted dinner parties and Best Buns Cupcakes are the Best, in the DC area. "Sorry DC Cupcakes, known as Georgetown Cupcakes" I just love the Red Velvet... However on... More

After dinner at the Carlyle, we walked over to Best Buns to pick up some gluten free cookies to take home. We bought Double Chocolate Chip and Toffee Crunch and they were both amazing! My only complaint is they don't offer them for dessert at the Great American restaurants.

We went there for a late breakfast last week. We had the eggs and cheese on 'iceberg bread' sandwiches and they were out of this world! The bread was perfectly toasted with a layer of butter which made it crispy yet so fluffy.. With plenty of cheddar cheese and the perfectly cooked eggs with the right amount of salt and... More

This place is clearly geared to a local crowd. People stream in from their morning dog walks, workouts and errands. The line might be long, but it'll move quickly. The food is delicious and unpretentious. You won't find aioli or remoulade on anything. They serve sandwiches made from freshly-baked bread and scrumptious homey ingredients.They also have a selection of danishes,... More

I haven't eaten inside but the store is next door to Carlyle, its parent company. Breads are great... but the cupcakes are huge and taste wonderful! We order them for special occasions and take them home. Choose from several flavors but we love Chocolate ganache, carrot cake, lemon. Red velvet is good too!

Thank Debbie M
