Breakfast Republic

Pancake Flight featuring Oreo Cookie Pancakes

Perched conveniently across from a trolley station with plenty of parking and a friendly staff is “Breakfast Republic” – One of San Diego’s top spot to enjoy the most important meal of the day. Open from 7am to 3pm daily, Breakfast Republic serves a tasty takes on American classics such as Oreo Pancakes, Shrimp & Grits and S’mores French Toast. Anyone looking for a fun and unpretentious place to begin the day will love any of the many  locations in Southern California.

Food and Drink Menu

For those looking to enjoy a morning cocktail Breakfast Republic offers craft beer and organic kombucha on draft, which are available as samplers to complement many of the unique dishes they serve. On a recent visit to the Mission Valley location I tried their Jurassic bloody Mary with candied bacon and a tajin rim.  It was stuffed with pickles, celery, olives and best of all came with a stainless steel straw!! Honestly this drink was a meal in itself. All of their drinks come in witty glasses and cups.

Now, onto breakfast! I decided to try the chilaquiles because I am a tortilla chip lover. It came topped with 3 eggs, red salsa, queso fresca, sour cream, black beans and mexican rice. It even had 3 perfectly ripe slices of avocado nestled in between. I would avsolutely order this again.


My husband had the Gluten-Free French Toast served with bananas, whipped cream. He really enjoyed it which is great because sometimes gluten-free items are hit or miss. This was definitely a hit!!

My daughter and son both enjoyed a pancake flight of 3 and each of them devoured everything on their plates. They tried strawberry cheesecake, cinnamon roll and pineapple upside down cake. The pancakes were big and fluffy and flavorful.

Indoor/Outdoor Decor

Breakfast Republic has some really fun décor/design pieces. There is a lounge area with egg chairs and tables, and cheeky sayings written across booth tables, such as “Brunch: The socially acceptable excuse for day drinking.” The liberty station location has an awesome outside patio with a view of the trolley arriving and departing. This is super fun for people watching. Of course the weather is San Diego is always great but indoor dining works great too!


  • Reservations are not allowed. Under a picture of Christopher Walken it’s posted: “Walkens Only” LOL. However, the Liberty Station location will text you when your table is ready so you can walk around there while you’re waiting.
  • Breakfast Republic carres almond and coconut milks for guests who prefer non-dairy alternatives.
  • They allow well behaved four-legged friends on their outside patio.
