I treated myself to a birthday breakfast at Tweet and ordered a Biscuits and Gravy special (I think it was called the Country Eggs Benedict), which was a split biscuit with sausage, fried eggs, and sausage gravy on top. Yeah, it’s a heart attack on a plate, but my birthday only comes once a year! The food was excellent—probably the best biscuits and gravy I’ve had since I’ve been in Chicago. The biscuits had a great flavor and were fluffy—not dense or greasy. The sausage was organic and also full of flavor. The hash browns were hot and crispy; the only thing missing was a bit of melted cheddar cheese on top (hey, why not?). The addition of tomato and orange slices on the side made the meal feel slightly healthier. ;-)

The staff was great as well. My server was really nice (even struck up a conversation with me) and my coffee cup was always kept full. If I hadn’t had other things to do that day, I would have hung out a lot longer. Tweet has a great atmosphere—very “homey” and bright—and I’m sure it’s even better when the weather is warmer and there is outdoor seating.

If this place were closer to where I live, I’d be in trouble. This is the type of place I could see myself coming to once a week. The menu is huge, so it can please the palette of any brunch-lover. Perhaps I can justify coming here more often if I actually walk from my place to burn off some calories beforehand!
