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 in line to order at the counter. It's very popular with good reason. The staff... 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 from Best Buns. Goodness! My husband tends to get a different sandwich each time but... More

While the pastries look delicious, the only thing I've ordered here is their juicy, thick hamburger! It was excellent, but hard to eat the whole thing! And fries are great, too!

I LOVE this place for breakfast pastries. Sometimes there's a line, but it goes so fast, that it shouldn't intimidate at all. The chocolate croissant is my favorite- they use dark chocolate, and the pastry is very flakey. The ham and cheese croissant is fantastic as well if you're in the mood for something savory. They offer coffee too, and... 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. 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!
