    Possibly the most pleasant place to have breakfast in LA, the glorious light in the mornings is hard to beat. Throw in pitch perfect pastries and favorites like croque madame and wild mushroom toast. Read more

    All share plates. Friendly staff. Seatings are not comfortable. Food is amazing. My favorites are the grilled octopus salad, burrata heirloom tomatoes, sweet potato agnolotti, cheese ravioli. 💯

    Amazing food here. Brunch is a best kept secret. Order from the counter and then sit anywhere in the whole restaurant. Love the eclectic rice porridge with pork and egg. The Stickybomb is insane. Try.

    Because of the quality of the breads and baked goods, we'd recommend brioche French toast, salmon tartine with avocado, and the classic croque madame are just a few of the stand outs on the menu. Read more

    I had a delicious brunch with my friend today !! We order the kimchi fried rice and this salmon bruschetta. Both were really delicious. I can't wait to return to République, and try other plates !

    Special of the night wood burning oven baked lasagna: thick al dente noodles with mozzarella and mushrooms in a buttery sauce that created a harmony of taste and texture. May be best pasta in LA!

    Delicious start to finish. Not a single complaint. The bartenders make really good old fashioned too the foie gras was to die for. Make RSVP for dinner if you don't want the bar.

    Great atmosphere- lively, communal tables, good energy. All share plates, so great for groups. Order the mushroom pappardelle, beet and avocado salad, bread & butter (trust me), uni toast.

    Noshing on the jambon buerre sandwich while sipping a coffee and reading the paper at a corner table atthe spots sun-soaked bistro area might make you feel like you're spending an afternoon in France. Read more

    Sure everyone has had chicken but never this juicy, never this flavorful. Pasta and bread made fresh daily. The savory celery kicks it all the way up with serrano. Great looking space.

    Using a grass-fed, mostly chuck patty (with dry-aged trimmings from those steaks you see hanging behind glass in the dining area), Manzke’s cheeseburger offers a window into indulgence. Read more

    Fun place w/awesome food. Their pain au chocolat was great. Looking forward to coming back and trying more. FYI for brunch you order at the front and seat yourselves. Makes life easy on a quiet day.

    Fresh juice, coffee, fresh bread & pastries, homemade jams, &must try bacon and eggs makes my list of top breakfast spots. Lunch & dinner is okay too. The move here is to go early & avoid the lines.

    Shakshouka is an Israeli classic with stewed tomatoes and peppers, black kale, yogurt, cilantro and a fried egg — served with a baguette to drag through the saucy broken yolk. Read more

    That duck breast was perfection. Make sure to get a cranberry with every bite. The old fashioned was also really good. Sit at the bar to watch bartenders do their thing. Make reservations for dinner.

    Stop in mornings for viennoiserie, tarts and dough baked, rolled, fried and sweet; and start dinner with housemade bread with salted Normandy butter ($5) or, better yet, wood oven pan drippings ($5). Read more

    At night, after dinner, there’s much joy to be had in Pastry Chef Margarita Manzke’s sage panna cotta, or her sweet and tart and utterly alluring passionfruit tart. Read more

    Perfect for breakfast - order at the counter and wait at a table in the well lit dining room. Breakfast sandwich is delicious but heavy. The pastries are superb.

    Dinner was divine. Agnolotti is must for any pasta and cheese lover. All the flavors were clean, creative and yummy. Definitely coming back! Service was over the top attentive and experienced.

    Inside, the cathedral vibe is shaken up by acres of Philippine-sourced geometric tiles and furniture. Above the bar hangs a giant photo of a glaring Marco Pierre White to provide a wink of badassery.

    Normandy butter and baguette is the best deal on the menu (they will continue to bring bread as long as you ask). Steak tartare, agnolotti and short ribs were outstanding. Great ambiance!

    Walter Maznke's ambitious bakery/cafe/restaurant in the former Campanile space in La Brea. Don't miss any of the house-made breads and seasonal specials.

    Is there really anything more seductive sounding than a French ham-and-cheese sandwich covered in creamy béchamel with a fried egg on top? Get the Croque Madame at Republique, and it's game over. Read more

    For a French twist on a breakfast menu with some New Asian and New American twists, Republique is the place. The quality of the baked goods and breads itself make this joint stand out. Read more

    The croissants were so perfect. Nice flaky crust outside and moist inside! And the bomboli are dangerous. Will now be my breakfast place for any type of meeting!

    The interior alone is worth a visit, the omelette (Gruyere cheese & mushrooms) was a good option and the "golden juice" is good.

    You have go for a pastry when you're here. The crime brûlée cheesecake was perfectly paired with the vanilla almond milk latte (extra shot of course).

    The uni toast is insane, the baguettes are absurd (Margarita is a pastry-chef), and the space has been reworked beautifully. Read more

    Get the egg on toast (uni on top of scrambled eggs on top of toast) and the pork chop and belly. Pork chop is cooked to a perfect medium rare.

    This place is awesome! We got the breakfast sandwich which was one of the best I have had! Mushroom toast was good too but I wouldn't get it again.

    Go for lunch or brunch and get the burger. About a half an inch too thick but the meat and the sauce are quite spectacular.
