Croissants, French bread, and scones: absolutely the best in town. Have gone here regularly for many years, always excellent!
The bakery had a great selection and the food was tasty. A bit pricey for daily consumption though. Good for special occasions as I had come that day for a coworker leaving our office. I picked up a great assortment of baked goods and everyone enjoyed them.
All ye who enter here shall be forfeit their diet or reasonable calorie intake. Try a sticky bun.
The sandwiches are excellent. I think I've had them all and they are all good.
Excellent food, friendly staff, and good prices. What's not to like?
This is an easy 5 star because they have the best breakfast sandwiches in the area. Their fresh breads are also amazing and I really like Mike's sandwich. Their burgers at lunch are also the best in Shirlington.
Good bread, breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, coffee is ok.
Their name says it all!
I found a gem in Arlington it's by far my go to for my baked dessert
Yes, yes, yes!!! Get your best buns here but get there early or you will freeze your buns off as you wait in line. Great food and great service.
Best Buns is an awesome bakery spot in Shirlington Village. The staff is friendly and efficient. They offer a good variety of coffees, teas, and breakfast sandwiches in the mornings and great offerings for lunch with deli sandwiches and burgers. Kids will LOVE their sweet treats.
This place deserves 5 stars. Great energy and service. My favorites are the Ham & Havarti and bacon egg n' cheese on everything bagel. Ordered here many times and haven't had a bad experience yet! Edit: well my good luck has run out. (Lowering from 5 to 4 stars) Ordered a double bacon cheeseburger and received no bacon. Went all the way back to get it fixed and all I got was a small piece slapped on in a pretty lazy way. See photo.
If you have a craft idea, they have the supplies.
The BEST ooey gooey cunnacin rolls on the east coast! I only stumbled upon this place because my daughter's school had a field trip there. I'm so glad I did AND had a cinnamon roll because I have been searching for 8 years for a cinnamon roll as delicious as this on the east coast. I now drive out of my way 30 minutes just to get one. Their staff has been very friendly and helpful each visit. There is ample seating inside to sit down and relax. I haven't tried the other bakery items but everything looks delicious. I can't wait to try one of the savory breakfast sandwiches too.
I have been here twice for coffee. And the staff is always great
Great bakery. Highly recommend the brioche, challah, big city sourdough, and sweet pretzels!
As always friendly prompt know your name service with top if the line quality products..amazing bread..mo where else in the area!
Awesome Breakfast Croissant. Its an every Saturday kinda thing
Good for your java(starbucks sold here) & sandwich/sweet carbs
Solid pastries and bread. It's difficult to pass by this establishment without purchasing a baked good. One whiff of the fresh, baked bread and you're done for.
I had to write this review to boast about the exceptional service at Best Buns, more specifically the manager Emily Abrams. She is a gem! This has always been my favorite bakery since I lived in VA and I continue to visit when I am in the area. Last year, during the store’s most hectic holiday season, Emily was able to make a special order for my family. She exceeded all expectations and I am very appreciative although it took forever for me to write this review. As for the food, I can’t think of anything that I do not like. On Sundays, I would get out of bed early for the apple monkey bread. The burgers are a nice addition. Also, the cookies, brookies, mini cakes and cupcakes are excellent.
My hubby brought some products yesterday, i have never ate better muffin in USA, the little bread rolls chain are so fantastic and i had also some pecan snail, unbelievable. I can’t wait to go there by myself now!!! Very well done
Breakfast sandwiches are on point! We were only in town 4 mornings and we stopped by 3 times. Will be coming back next time
I didn't care for the cupcakes texture or flavor. I got the vanilla valentines cupcake with white icing and heart shaped sprinkles. It had a strange heavy cornbread dense type of texture. The white icing was good, but that was about it. If you like fluffy or light spongy texture then their cupcakes are not for you. They are more heavy in density.
This is a true bakery. I go every other month just to get their carrot cake cupcake, and it's honestly divine! Their bread rolls are great too! The employees are super friendly. Great location, great people, awesome bakery.
This place is so good that I almost wish I hadn't tried it because I don't live near it and now I know what I'm missing. For real, some of the best bread I've ever had.
The staff is so friendly and helpful, and their selection and quality knock it out of the park. Highly recommend the lemon blueberry muffin and Jen's Sunrise croissant
Great bread and sandwiches. Wonderful staff as well.
Awesome Place! Good vibes
Nothing special about it, I have definitely had better bakery items. Good stop for a breakfast sandwich.
The best egg and cheese sandwich!!
Always great service, and great food. Friendly staff who somehow always remember your name. You have to try the mini carrot bundt cake!
Apple monkey bread to die for
Get here early or no bread for you...cinnamon rolls are amazing as is all oc their breads.
Awesome breakfast sandwiches, with a great selection of bread and pastries. This place provides the bread for all of the Great American Restaurants. Also, the customer service is always on point.
I meet friends for breakfast here once per week, and the staff know my name and my order when I walk in the door. I appreciate that they are thoughtful and attentive. They have a small and tasty selection of breakfast sandwiches from the kitchen, all on the bread made in-house. I also stop here occasionally for a breakfast pastry and coffee, or a hot beverage in the afternoon. The bread is good, but I actually bake my own bread at home, so I do not regularly buy theirs. Best Buns provides bread for the Carlyle next door and the other Great American Restaurants.
I would love to hear why this place won't make a bagel breakfast sandwich. I used to go to best buns every once in a while to order a breakfast sandwich. I'd always order an egg and cheese bagel and would always be told no, we don't do that here. You sell bagels and you sell breakfast sandwiches. Your anti-bagel stance confuses me as a customer. I haven't been to best buns in a couple years as a result, despite living less than a mile away. I'll drive the extra couple miles to go to Einstein despite the fact that their bagels aren't as good, but at least they make what I want.
Staff is always so helpful, smiling, and efficient—especially when the line is out the door. On Saturdays and Sundays this place is packed with locals trying to get fresh baked goods, coffee, or cake orders. Their Apple monkey bread is my favorite but the challah bread is delicious. Spuntino sandwich is a great grab-and-go lunch, and when they have it, the mini carrot cake bundt is great for anyone with a sweet tooth.
Best Buns is one of those local gems. It's part of the Great American Restaurants chain. On weekend mornings it gets packed quickly - so be sure to get there early if you want any of their top selling breads. I highly recommend the Monkey bread. There's also off menu items such as bacon, eggs, and cheese on a bagel.
New place, priced very well. Amazing comfort food.
Staff is incredibly friendly and amenable. Best fruit danish I've ever had. Delicious pastries, wonderful home made artisan breads, warm family style environment.
They had forgotten to give us the cupcakes we paid for and they brought them all the way to our house which was at least 20 minutes away.
Always friendly service and the best bakery in the area!
The pastries here are ok but nothing special. There breads looked good.
They have best mini bundt cakes and the oatmeal n raisins cookies are my favorites
Great pastries and delicious sandwiches
I like the bread and pastries. Outside seating is nice.
Yummy! All around delicious.
Best cupcakes, bread, and sandwiches ever!!! When you try the Best Buns cupcakes, you'll feel like these cupcakes were made in heaven. Theirs are moist, big, and flavorful! An advice, skip the long lines at Georgetown cupcakes and go to Best Buns! Georgetown's are terribly overrated! You can thank me later ;)
Awesome pastries and coffee better than a regular Starbucks. Be prepared for a fifteen minute wait but good things come to those who wait!!
Yummy goods friendly people
Delicious breakfast & bread/pastries that are out of this world!! Love love love Best Buns
The best sandwiches. Delicious old fashioned Bakery reminds me of yesteryear. Soft cookies and buttered icing cupcakes
Glorious Sandwiches my favorite being Sputino with roasted red pepper, aioli, watercress. The croissant and pain au chocolat are superior.
Best bakery in this area!
There's almost always a line (weekends typically out the door), but its worth the wait the for the privilege of enjoying their fantastic fresh baked pastries and egg sandwiches with choice of Starbuck's coffee for breakfast, and creative tasty sandwiches and salads for lunch. Only a couple of bar seats indoors, so plan to eat outside or take it with you.
I love the bread and pasta and sandwiches and coffee
They have the pengest nosh. Cinnamon roll yeah =
They have the best egg sandwiches and monkey bread. Love this place.
This place is perfect. The food is amazing but it's the staff. The staff is sweet and kind, no matter how busy or hectic it is the cashiers are always smiling and sweet. I don't come as often anymore due to crazy work schedule but when I do make it in, they still remember my name and ask how my son is doing. Good job morning staff 03/16/16!!
Always excellent bread and pastries. Very friendly staff.
Excellent food. Parking is painful. It is small, but worth it!
Great bread and goodies, nice staff
Best breakfast spot in Shirlington for me. Parking isnt the best, but welcome to Shirlington. Other than that little hiccup, it's pretty awesome!
Great bread and desserts. We Like the rosemary bread, almond/walnut croissant, and chocolate croissants.
Great sweets and savory bread options. It's our go-to bread joint
I ordered a birthday cake and 10 of the most popular cupcakes. The cake was delicious and just as I requested it to be (chocolate cake with ganache filling and with vanilla icing). The cupcakes, however, stole the show. The vanilla cake with white icing and the lemon flavored one with white icing we're amazing. The double chocolate was as it looks -- rich and very sweet. I will buy from here again.
Many good breads. Fewer sweet treats than expected.
The bread is amazing and fresh! The salads are a good price, but everytime I get the roast chicken salad it only has one small piece of goat cheese, I feel like they are being stingy. The dressing is great and so are their sandwiches.
Best pastries and baked goods in the area! They also have a fantastic selection of breakfast sandwiches and burgers! They also serve Starbucks coffee and espresso. My girlfriend and I love going to Best Buns on Saturday / Sunday mornings.
This is the best place for morning coffee or a quick afternoon salad or sandwich. They are always made fresh everyday. You can get fresh made to order breakfast sandwiches. Cookies, fresh homemade bread! A whole bunch of pastries! The people that work here are always nice as well! If I have the time i make it a morning stop, parking is not too difficult and Saturday is the only super busy day! So come early if your coming Saturday! You can also eat Nextdoor or outside!
Friendly and very helpful in the busy spot. Ordered apple monkey bread and turkey sausage egg and cheese sandwich. Monkey bread came right away- phenomenal! (quick pop in microwave or toaster oven for hot even better) Egg sandwich worth the wait - delicious! The bread really brings the whole thing together with a unique twist. ***** frozen coffee cubes in the iced coffee - BONUS POINTS! Keep it up, I’ll be back!
This place has really good bread and pastries.
I go here every weekend morning to eat a cheese and fruit Danish. The atmosphere is great, free water if your thirsty, and great pastries and breakfast sandwiches.
Always a line in the AM, but worth waiting for delicious buttery cheesy gooey delectable breakfast sandwiches. Oh their breads and stuff are also tasty, but daaaang, their breakfast sandwiches are so good.
Great service, excellent baked goods, and wonderful breakfast sandwiches...all in an attractive small downtown neighborhood. It's a bit of a ways away from where I live but I think it will still become a regular breakfast spot for me.
The almond croissant will change your life
Had a grilled chicken sandwich on their AMAZING fresh bread. Penne pasta salad as a side was light refreshing and had good mixed vegetables
Great store and friendly staff. Fantastic bread selection and treats. Has breakfast items and lunch sandwiches. Cupcakes and other baked goods are available until they run it so reccomend calling in order if have your heart set on a cinnamon bun or cupcake if you're going in afternoon our they might be gone
Great brad company that serves everything from fresh made breads to cupcakes. The monkey bread & other specialty breads look quite amazing.
The breakfast sandwiches are great. The Cheese danishes are great. The monkey bread is alright, but I'd recommend getting the one with apples over the regular.
AWESOME baked goods
I bought over 15 different pastries and cut them up as samplers because I recall having really good monkey bread from there a few years ago. I was really disappointed with my order. I found most of the pastries to be dry and not very good to include the monkey bread. The cookies and brioche loaf were probably the best out of bunch.
One of the best places to eat in Arlington!
The parking can be horrible and it can be pretty crowded and chaotic inside, but the food is excellent. I love the grilled chicken sandwich and the chocolate cream cheese cupcakes.
Great food and coffee. The breads are amazing!
Great place to get breakfast sandwiches.
Phenomenal Experience : ) The service was great and the food was outstanding ... !!!
Awesome breakfast sandwich and coffee!
Best cupcakes ever! Delish salads, great breakfast and lunch sandwiches and yummy burgers.
Very delicious french bread !
Great quality and service
Great cupcakes. Great service!!
Always top-notch goodies and service.
Fresh breads and sandwiches. Always a good day when we go to Best Buns.
Amazing food. Sandwiches are awsome
Best buns, scones, muffins, cakes, cookies, bread, sandwiches and coffee! Need I say more? Best time is early in the morning when you can get breakfast treats right out of the oven! My Golden retriever even pulls me down there for dog biscuits in the morning! She loves them!
So many good things on the menu here, hard to pick just a few when you go in! The chocolate croissants are phenomenal. The fact that they put chocolate ganache in there is just unbelievable if you are a chocolate lover like myself. The breads here are just lovely as well. Great place to grab a coffee with a friend or read out on the little patio.
Terrific lunchtime spot.
Awesome place and always great friendly customer service High quality food!
delicious bread and sandwiches. If you pick up a sandwich around lunch time they're fresh! other hours of the day they can seem a little soggy.
Have to try the plain croissants out of the oven - heaven. Also the rosemary epi, order ahead for these. Trust me on this one.
Lota of calories to be had here. Great tasting treats.
Best bakery around and the staff is always SO patient helpful and friendly that i always tip them a dollar at least for the good service and food.
The absolute best bacon egg and cheese Croissants. Ever.
Expensive but to die for cupcakes (frosting). Good bread, sandwiches are delicious.
If you crave a “traditional” fried egg sandwich with bacon and a slice of that cheese like substance commonly referred to as American on white bread, then Best Buns is for you. Be prepared to wait. By 9:00 am on a weekend morning the line is already out the door. Additional delights are available such as scones, danishes, sticky buns, and some of the best cup cakes in Arlington. If you need fresh bread, it’s available as well. Each February King Cakes are available.
Traveling for work today and found the BBBCo nearby and it was amazing! Would recommend it to anyone without gluten issues and the fresh fruit of you do! Super fast and friendly professional service. They proudly serve Starbucks coffee but don’t hold that against them!
The best breakfast sandwiches!
Great unexpected great food and service.
Jen's Rising Sun breakfast sandwich is unreal!
Always a pleasure eating here
BEST sticky bun I've ever had!!! Every time I'm in DC I make a special trip to pick a few of them up. They have a flakey croissant like bottom with a perfectly cooked, doughy top.
The plain croissant is anything but. Even without jam etc it tastes incredible. I have had croissants in France that pale in comparison. The bread is crusty on the outside and soft inside. This place is awesome
This restaurant is a part of The Great American Restaurants, always great service and great food. Best bread in the area.
Great sandwich. Best we've had in USA so far.
Great sandwiches, really good breads and pastries, and really nice people!
Best place in Shirlington, the staff is always friendly and willing to assist you. You can always get fresh baked breads, cupcakes, cookies and pastries. If you want something more they also serve icetea, sandwiches, salads and breakfast items. You can even place orders for items in advance if your having a party. My office loves the cupcakes and the monkeybread. If you haven't tried them out next time your in the neighborhood stop by.
Omg this place it's amazing, everything it's fresh and gourmet and the restaurant inside its clean... Everybody it's super friendly and professional, I definitely I'll recommend this awesome place to anyone... but THEY MUST COME TO THE DISTRICT OR MARYLAND... Please expand to different locations, you are awesome.
The carrot buns and carrot cup cakes are the best!
Nice people great service good food
Everything baked here is just perfect!
We get ginger cookies here all of the time. The staff is always friendly, the ginger cookies are as big as my kid's head. Other good tries: chocolate croissant, bacon cheddar scone, English toffee cookies, and the cupcakes. We tried the gluten sensitive cookies and they tasted like plastic, I think the plastic wrap they are in caused it though.
My favorite Bakery in Arlington. Would recommend pre-ordering or showing up early morning as they sell out of items quickly.
Sticky buns are the best.
Cinnamon Roll was amazing! A bit hectic BUT overall speedy service & yummy options!
We like to go there in the morning for their breakfast sandwiches and coffee. They are always spot on.
Quick bite. Great tasting sandwiches, cake, and cinnamon rolls. The free samples at the register are an added bonus. Go early. They tend to run out of the good stuff which leaves you with limited options.
Get the ginger cookies. Amazing!!! And my dogs love their dog biscuits.
Yummy bread and food. Great breakfast options and boxed lunches for business meetings or stay and enjoy your lunch. Shares seating with the Carlyle restaurant so seating is limited after 11 am.
Really great service every time I come here. Yep, they are busy and they work at keep the line flowing and customers happy. Their sandwiches are fresh and delicious. Breakfast options are also tasty an made hot. Coffee could be better as it is just the Starbucks brand offerings. But, their focus is bread offerings and they do that very well!!
I bought two garlic bread baguette from the Shoprite store in Plainview on Saturday May 25th. The packing said good until 05/29. The bread inside the package seemed almost a week old. Hard and dry. Someone should investigate their labeling process. Totally disappointed.
The BEST bakery EVER!!!
Great little bakery with two features to note: 1) Weekdays they serve the best burgers in Shirlington. 2) Breakfast sandwiches there are great -- cooked fresh, on great bread.
Great breakfast sandwiches, long wait time though
Friendly staff and they do a great job at managing the orders when its very busy. The food and pastries are always delicious. I never leave here disappointed. Breakfast sandwiches are to die for. The brookie is always amazing and the toffee cookie is probably my favorite.
Best Buns is a staple in Shirlington. Don't know what we would do without it.
Excellent in every way! It’s my go to for picnics, breakfast and cupcakes!
Delicious baked goods, friendly staff, and warm environment. Unfortunately their coffee is often burnt, and generally terrible. Buy your breads and breakfast here! Get your beverage elsewhere.
It was satisfactory. Bacon and cheese scone was good.
Love the cinnamon rolls at this place.
Very nice sandwiches and cookies. Great place to pick up a quality bite if you're in a hurry.
Amazing fresh bread at decent prices. Really great cupcakes. If they brewed good local coffee (not starbucks) and had more seating I would make this my go to for doing homework and relaxing, but I suppose that is not their purpose.
Great pastries there.
Hands down the best cupcakes in DC, Maryland and Virginia. Don’t forget to taste the carrot cake cupcake. It’s life changing!
