Lunch Eater: Spuntino Bakery & Catering - Chicken Sandwich

If you were driving south on North Miami Avenue around 2:30 p.m. a couple days ago between 14th and 11th Streets you might have seen Short Order eating a sandwich off the trunk of a dirty Toyota Corolla.

We were checking out Spuntino Bakery & Catering, and they close around 2 p.m. We placed our order at the cash-only lunch counter, dipped to the ATM at Brickell Publix, came back, paid, and picked up as they were shuttering the windows.

The sandwich pictured above is the Pollo Pesto, a solid sandwich. Check the grill marks on the bread, excellent crunch factor.

Spuntino Bakery serves breakfast ($3 - $4.50), salads ($4 - $5.95), pizza by the slice ($3.50 - $4), sandwiches ($6 - $6.50), empanadas ($2), snacks, coffee, drinks, and beer. According to they are also the catering arm of Graziano Sbroggio's Tiramesu Restaurant, Spris, Segafredo, and Le Bon. Carlo Donadoni is head chef for Spuntino.

From what we can tell from one sandwich the quality is good and the price is right. We'll be back to 1112 North Miami Avenue, Miami. Call 786-425-1116 for more info.
