Discover the Magic of Best Buns at Shirlington

Ah, the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread that warmly greets you as you stroll down the Village at Shirlington's tree-lined promenade! That delightful scent wafting in the air can be attributed to none other than Best Buns Bakery, an iconic Shirlington institution for almost three decades.


The Best Buns Experience

For 28 years, Best Buns has been the epicenter of delectable baked goods in Shirlington. Celebrated not just for its longevity, but more so for the craftsmanship and passion that goes into each product. Every day, artisan bakers meticulously hand mold and hearth bake their bread, embodying the essence of traditional baking methods. But Best Buns isn’t only about bread. From breakfast sandwiches that kickstart your day to scrumptious cupcakes that cater to your sweet cravings, this bustling bakery's offerings are a testament to the art of baking.

The cherry on top? It’s not just about the food. The bakery, located at 410 Campbell Ave., is an intrinsic part of the Great American Restaurants family and even provides all the bread for the neighboring Carlyle restaurant. What truly sets it apart, though, is the warmth with which the team greets each customer. At Best Buns, you're not just a transaction; you're part of a community.


Why Shirlington?

Set against the vibrant backdrop of Shirlington, Best Buns Bakery truly shines. The Village at Shirlington is the pulsating heart of arts and entertainment in Arlington, teeming with cultural vibrancy from the Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre to the niche cinemas of AMC Shirlington 7. Dating back to the 1940s as a shopping center and evolving through various stages of urban planning, Shirlington now stands as a testament to how a community can reinvent itself.

With an ambience reminiscent of European towns, the Village offers an array of experiences. A mosaic of local boutiques, sidewalk cafes, and diverse restaurants cater to an eclectic crowd. The culinary range here is as diverse as the people, spanning American, Asian, Indian, and Mediterranean, ensuring there’s something for every palate.

Moreover, the arts and entertainment don't end with theater plays and movies. Busboys & Poets, a multifaceted establishment, often hosts poetry readings, adding another layer to the cultural fabric of the place.

In essence, Shirlington is more than just a location. It's an experience. As the Village at Shirlington aptly states, whatever suits your fancy, it's here.

Whether you're a foodie seeking to relish a breakfast sandwich from Best Buns, a culture enthusiast aiming to catch a play, or someone looking for the perfect blend of shopping and relaxation, this neighborhood has you covered.

Restaurants of Arlington | SER

Nestled in the heart of Ballston, SER offers more than just food—it's an authentic Spanish experience. As soon as you step inside, the warm, inviting ambiance reminds you of Spain's cozy eateries. With its philosophy of being Simple, Easy, and Real, SER truly lives up to its reputation.‌

We kicked off our gastronomic journey with the tantalizing 'Pulpo a la Gallega'—perfectly seasoned octopus that melted in our mouths. The 'Papas Bravas,' crispy potatoes with spicy tomato sauce, set the stage for the evening's highlight: the iconic 'Paella.' Bursting with flavors of the sea and fragrant rice, it's a dish that encapsulates coastal Spain. Rounding off our meal was the 'Dorada a la Sal,' an ode to Spain's love for seafood.

Beyond the delightful dishes, SER's charm lies in its story. Recognized by top magazines like the Washingtonian and Arlington Magazine, it's clear that SER is a cut above the rest. Owned by a family deeply rooted in Spanish culture, they've created a space that feels like a friend's home—a friend who loves to cook and share tales of their homeland.

SER isn't just about food; it's about the love, passion, and heritage of Spain. Every dish tells a story, every bite is a journey. If you're in Arlington and crave an authentic Spanish escapade, SER awaits.
