Republique is the restaurant that replaced La Brea Bakery and Campanile that were once here. If you want to take it even further back, this beautiful building was once Charlie Chaplin’s old office space.
Come in to this casual spot to grab coffee and pastries while catching up with neighborhood friends in the La Brea area.
Unfortunately they don’t take reservations so be prepared to wait if you come during peak hours (ie. weekend brunch). You place your order at the cashier and then have food brought to your table (similar to Urth Caffe).
Note: they add a 3% surcharge to each bill to cover employee health insurance… a practice that’s more common in San Francisco but LA seems to be catching on, at least at this hot spot.
