Since opening last summer, Breakfast Republic has become one of the most popular brunch places in San Diego. We recently visited over the holidays, braved the long lines, and completely fell in love with this brunch spot.
Mimosas! Because no great story started with someone eating a salad.
Reading over the menu, I could barely contain my excitement. I honestly wanted to try nearly every single item listed and have never seen so many of my favorite brunch items all offered in one spot. Coffee flight, pancake flights, French toast flights, beer and sausage samplers, benedicts, scrambles, breakfast mac n cheese, chicken wing bowl, are just some of the mouth-watering items you have to choose from.
We started their coffee flight, with 4 oz samplers of their latte, mocha and mexican mocha. The mini drinks were quite cute and were a fun way to start our meal.
Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha
Every month they have a coffee special and this epic creation is the one for January. I managed to snap one photo before some of the toppings fell off my cup.
S’more French Toast
I really wanted to try a pancake flight and a French toast flight but ultimately decided it would be too much food. Next time! In the end, I selected the S’more French Test. I really enjoyed the look of those toasted mini marshmallows on top.
Shrimp, linguisa sausage, rice, peppers and topped with three eggs any style, this was a hearty brunch option for Mr. K and he thoroughly enjoyed every bite. I thought the dish was well seasoned, with a generous amount of sausage and shrimp throughout.
Overall, we had a really nice first meal here and we can’t wait to come back so we can try the rest of the menu. There were so many dishes I wanted to try that we simply didn’t have room for. The only downside is that they don’t take reservations and the restaurant is very popular. We waited about 40 minutes on our visit.
