Twitter has unlimited free food for its New York employees -- and it looks incredible

There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Unless you work at Twitter. 

In Twitter’s New York offices, employees head to a private café to tuck into free breakfasts and lunches, five days a week. 

And it’s not your typical work canteen with dried out meat and shriveled vegetables, this café serves up a gourmet menu, which changes every day. 

Tech companies are revolutionising food at work. Google was at the forefront of this, reportedly spending $US80 million a year on catering food for its employees. It now has more than 185 cafes globally and serves over 108,000 meals every day. Twitter is now following suit. 

Take a look at all the amazing things on offer below:

Every day, employees are offered multiple options at breakfast and lunch.

The cafe is run by Amelia Ekus who was formerly a front-of-house manager at a trendy West Village restaurant.


Ekus runs the show with chef Mark Gandara, who worked at Red Rooster and the Union Square Cafe, one of restaurateur Danny Meyer's most iconic restaurants.


The menu kicks off at breakfast, where you can order eggs any style.


There's also a smoothie bar, where employees can have their drinks made bespoke.


There are pastries and pancakes for those with a sweet tooth.


At lunchtime, they pull out all the stops with a gourmet menu.


There's a ton of variety with three to four food stations to choose from.

Including a salad area.


And a pizza station, which is a big favourite with employees.


There are about 27 different menus every week, according to Eater.

Despite this, Chef Gandara hasn't made the same dish in over a year since the restaurant opened.

The cafe is so popular, that General Manager Ekus claims her daily photo tweets showing what's on offer inspires employees to go to work, Ekus told Eater.
