I bought it 6 years ago from WF and it was fantastic. Ever since then it has been horrible (gve up the last two years). Since I don't feel like making it myself is there a place in the DC/NOVA area for me to get a good one?

    I don't know if they have it, but Cathal Armstrong's Society Fair seems like a good place to call. He's Irish and the bakery is supposed to be fantastic.

      Wegmans had it last year around this time. Very good. Likely is seasonal.

          Wegman's is seasonal and agree it is good. Best Buns in Shirlington makes it too, also very good.

          I've never even heard of this place. And yet I am familiar with Restaurant Eve and Eamons. I'll check it out. Thank you.
