Café Republic is one of my locals and always a reliable choice. Food is consistently good, service is friendly and efficient. I love their salmon Nicoise salad and Californian salad. Weekly specials, $5 happy hour Monday to Friday and good coffee.

Pizzas should have more topping, other meals were a little bland and could improve. Drinks list was good and the service was very good. Womens toilets had no toilet paper at all.

We eat at the Republic several times a year as it is close to the Como cinema and easy to get to by train or tram. Our group of 8 had a very nice time last Friday night. The food is normally good but I think this time it had stepped up a notch in quality.

Nice varied menu. Good service - loved the fact we were reminded about the happy hour drinks and how there was a choices of several whites and reds as well as a bubbly. I had the fish and chips very generous serve with three pieces of excellent fish

About Cafe Republic

Long Live the Republic! Whether it’s a weekday lunch, dinner date night or a Sunday recovery session, Café Republic in South Yarra is a crowd pleaser. With its floor to ceiling windows, the dining room is light-filled and appealing. Patrons come back to Café Republic for the coffee alone, though the rest of the breakfast menu has plenty to offer too. You’ll find all your faves: from avocado and feta on sourdough to bircher muesli or a range of egg dishes. With plenty of sides to choose from, you can make your brekkie just the way you like it. For lunch there are smaller plates on offer — such as pulled pork sliders or bruschetta — as well as salads, focaccias and sandwiches, thin-crust pizzas and a solid selection of mains. Don’t overlook the tempting cocktails and the extensive wine list, either. Order from the grill at dinnertime, and don’t pass up the side of dill-battered onion rings. Best dish: Wagyu beef burger sliders
