Breakfast Republic-Point Loma, CA

https://www.yelp.com/biz/breakfast-republic-san-diego-2

I’ve been to many brunch spots in San Diego, CA.  I have to say, hands down Breakfast Republic is my current favorite.  They have good food, good adult beverages, flights of coffee and great service!  What more could you ask for?  How about brunch everyday of the week?!  YES they serve brunch everyday from 7am-3pm!  Lastly don’t let the long line fool you if there is one which on weekends yes…but they move the line pretty quickly.  So go give them a try and thank me later. 🙂
