    Everyone's food was great. They accommodated us even though we arrived an hour early after a movie that finished sooner than we thought I would definitely recommend.

    This is a lovely place for a casual meal with friends, or a drink after work. They are a part of the South Yarra local scene, and always welcoming. Great menu, with something for pretty much every palate and regular specials (the hot pot special in winter has been a fave). Great to see them back after lockdown!! Recommended!

    Amazing restaurant, staff were funny, friendly and relaxed! Food was amazing and reasonably priced and so too were the drinks. A great place to go out for dinner on my birthday.

    This quick meal after a movie was quite enjoyable. Staff were very friendly and efficient, although we were disappointed in the way masks were worn under the nose or chin, especially in the kitchen.

    Good to see Café Republic coming back after the long gap. Very good quality food and pleasant service. Nice and casual place for meeting with friends and catching up. Not too noisy, plenty of air, and nice natural staff

    Booked with The Folk, unfortunately the booking did not go to the restaurant, but the manager was amazing, in these trying times and only being able to have limited numbers, he worked his magic we were able to have an amazing dinner. Thank you for an amazing night

    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.

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
