    Good practical meals for all. From salads to sliders to salmon and more. Staff always friendly and food always tasty. Great to catch up for lunch.

    Cafe Republic is our trusty neighbourhood local. We know every time we go, we'll have a good meal and good service. Last night was a very hot evening, so we shared the calamari salad and California salad. Both were really good ... but maybe some sliced fresh chilli in the calamari would give it that extra something. The French rose by the glass was perfect for the hot night and with the salads. The service is always great here - efficient and friendly. We were really impressed to get two glasses filled with ice for our drinking water without asking ... the little touches go a long way and keep us returning. See you again soon!

    The food took over 40 minutes to arrive even though the cafe wasn’t even busy. No apology from staff. Overall very meh, and food also pretty bland.

    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.

    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 the restaurant

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
