If you can do breakfast all day and every day, you’ll want to check out Breakfast Republic in Irvine. Bringing their breakfast favorites from San Diego, Breakfast Republic, added an eighth location. My friends and I are big brunch people, and they’re going to love it here. It’s also family-friendly. I like how innovative the menu items are. For example, they have a Breakfast Mac N Cheese. Yes, for breakfast! I’m starting to think you can eat anything for breakfast as long as you add an egg on it. It’s located next door to Trader Joe’s by the UC Irvine campus. My family and I also tried their Churro Pancakes, Mr. Presley French Toast, Breakfast Jambalaya, and Crab & Crawfish Cake Benedict. Everything was yummy. See more descriptions below!
Iced Salted Caramel Latte
Breakfast Bacon Mac N Cheese
… with Jurassic Pork upgrade, topped with parmesan breadcrumbs, chives, and three eggs any style was highly recommended and is one of their popular favorites.
Their pancakes are dusted with cinnamon sugar and powdered sugar. They were nice and fluffy plus not too sweet.
Mr. Presley French Toast
Their “Mr. Presley” French Toast are Peanut Butter stuffed and topped with bananas foster and bacon. They were delicious.
Includes Shrimp & Portuguese linguisa sausage, rice, green onions, red bell pepper, fire roasted tomatoes, topped with three eggs any style. We’re from the south and thought it was great!
Crab & Crawfish Cake Benedict
Poached eggs served over sourdough English muffin, topped with GF hollandaise sauce, served with house potatoes, blackberry-jalapeno jam, guajillo, and parsley garnish. Tasty! I’m also showing you what it looks like after you cut into it, because you need to see the jam.
