With low lighting, dark wood furniture, plants in glass cloches, and relaxing music, The Bun Shop can only be described as chill. The original location in Mt. Vernon on Read Street has been featured on a handful of TV shows, but don’t go for that reason, go for a savory or sweet bun, empanadas, or a Vietnamese iced coffee. Feel free to hang a while and caffeinate while you read a book, do some work, or catch up with a friend—the big open space works well for any activity. One very nice thing is that they have an excellent loose tea selection, so everyone can find something to enjoy. And, they have a location in Towson now, too.
