    Tweet offers quite an eclectic menu from breakfast to dinner, but their kimchi is a must try! This Korean dish is served with fermented cabbage, steamed rice and veggies all in one magical bowl. Read more

    always super busy for Sunday Brunch & yet it's all so worth it in the end. If you're in the hood make you stop and check it out. Don't forget that it's cash only but if you do they have an 🏧 on hand

    Breakfast burritos 'n mimosas! Tweet is the best combo of super fun ambiance (brunch spot by day/gay bar by night) and huge portions of inventive food. The menu is enormous and you can't go wrong.

    Tweet is my favorite brunch spot right now. Get there early. Great for kids! Tons of activities for the kids and give them sliced bananas and bread for a warm up. Gluten free options. Chilaquiles!

    Service is great! Gluten menu. Try the crab Benedict. If you are from Maryland bring OBay lol. It's not a Maryland crab cake but its good. This dish is a lil pricey to be served w/hashbrowns.

    Everythingisgood! Sausage biscuits and gravy are decadent: I always order a side of sausage, too, because if I'm going to do this, I'M GONNA DO THIS!! Best Red Velvet cake in the city. Get it to go.

    Try to go early for brunch on a weekend. Like 9 or 10. By 11 on you'll be waiting around ah hour. However, it's worth the wait! Banana pancakes are amazing.

    Best Chilaquiles outside of Guanajuato! But you gotta ask for the eggs to be estrellados (over easy) not scrambled; so much better with the yolk running into the corn tortilla chips...

    Although all of the dishes on Tweets vast and eclectic menu are highly recommendable, the bibimbap is the real star.
