Sure, it’s mostly known for brunch (and rightfully so: You haven’t had a Bloody Mary until you’ve had one here with the corn arepas). But anybody who’s tried one of Tweet’s layer cakes (also served at the bar next door, Big Chicks) knows dessert here is a must. Whether red velvet or yellow cake with chocolate frosting, these cakes taste as if they were baked by a loving mother, or at least a loving den mother—which is exactly what Tweet’s owner, Michelle Fire, is.
