Hands down, Two Hands is one of our favorite spots to get the best brunch on South Congress. You can expect many people waiting for a chance to eat at this popular restaurant. I mean after looking at the menu, who wouldnโ€™t want to take a bite out of every single menu item. They serve both breakfast and dinner options which offers a nice variety. We suggest trying the mushroom and green toast which comes on sourdough bread with roasted mushrooms, braised charred greens, poached egg, herbed tahini, zaโ€™atar, and the option of adding avocado. Another good classic is the avocado toast with an added poached egg!
