It’s hard to encounter a soul in Los Angeles who doesn’t rave about brunch at République, which has won many accolades since it opened its doors in 2014. With its high cathedral ceilings, colorful tiled floors, and mix of wood, exposed brick and metal textures, the 1920s structure embodies a harmonious mix of both Provençal and old Hollywood charm. Just like the space, the menu options are expansive, with options such as brioche French toast, pork belly sausage breakfast sandwich, brisket and kimchi fried rice, and fried chicken and waffles, making your decision close to impossible. Whatever you end up choosing, just know that the indulgence will be worth it. Before you head out, make sure to stop by the baked goods counter to pick up a pastry by the chef’s wife, Margarita, who is one of the city’s finest pastry chefs.
