    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!

    The space feels built for a laissez-faire breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Light spills in beautifully, even when it's cloudy outside. Try the excellent shakshuka or the indulgent mushroom toast.

    Amazing place, the french toast is huge perfect one, better than all i ever tasted, shakshoka too much tomato sauce, omelet nice but the side salad nothing special about it.Almond coffee latte 😍😍.

    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.
  • Crystal T.
    There's so much goodness in this menu that it's often hard to decide what to order. The baked pastries are always a solid choice and the Shakshouka is always fireeee. So are their baked breads.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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!
