Although Best Buns seems to specialize in savory breads and sandwiches, they had very good cupcakes, which was what I was after. I had vanilla with chocolate frosting, my daughter had red velvet, and both were delicious. I'm glad we ate them off-site, though, because...More

If you have the calories to spare, you must try the "Willing-No- Ham" breakfast sandwich here. Even though our hotel has a breakfast buffet, every time I stay in Shirlington I have to have that sandwich for at least one breakfast. Be prepared to wait...More

This is the closest thing you can get to a NY egg sandwich anywhere in this area. The baked goods are delicious as well.

My little family and I love walking down to Best Buns on the weekend in the mornings when Shirlington is as quiet as you'll ever see it. My son is in love with their orange juice and he claims it's the best because it comes...More

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....More
