The reason why you should go to Spiga for breakfast and not lunch is because their pastries will sell out. What’s in the case varies day by day, but you should get at least two of whatever guava pastry is on the menu. This is a small spot with limited seating, so you might need to hang outside for a little or take whatever you get to-go. The chalkboard menu above the tables also changes daily, and typically includes things like quiches, sandwiches, and plates of pasta for lunch.
