With both breakfast and lunch served until 5pm seven days days a week and dinner served until late, Cafe Republic is a popular choice among Melbourne’s locals at any time of the day. No matter whether you’re there to cure a hangover with their signature bloody mary or you’re trying to wake up with one of their premium coffees, Cafe Republic has just what you’re after and then some. Situated just steps from South Yarra Station on the corner of Toorak Road and Osborne Street, Cafe Republic’s always there when you need them most.
Casual yet sophisticated, Cafe Republic in Melbourne’s South Yarra is so much more than your usual cafe. In addition to excellent coffee – served hot, cold, or with chocolate (try the iced mocha!) – the restaurant offers a full menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner options. And if you’re planning an event, Cafe Republic on Toorak Road may just be the perfect place for it, with a function room seating up to 24 people and full catering on offer.
Breakfast at Melbourne’s Cafe Republic means it’s time for the Big Republic breakfast, a huge spread of chorizo, eggs, bacon, spinach, potato rosti, avocado and slow-roasted cherry tomatoes served with your choice of toast, or something smaller like a bagel with your choice of tasty toppings. At lunchtime, we recommend ordering the incredible Wagyu beef burger or the housemade ravioli, and for dinner, we suggest trying out either the BBQ chicken pizza topped with chicken breast, red onion, mushrooms, and peppers, or the dill-battered fish and chips served with rocket, feta, house tartare and watermelon. Be sure to book in advance for a great meal at this South Yarra cafe and restaurant!
Great service, great food, generous portion.My favourite cafe bistro. It's been a lot of times we came here and never once feeling disappointed. Will definitely keep coming back.
A very good Happy Hour and great staff. The food is also delicious and provides a great venue to go to following a hard day at work.
Great location for a quick business lunch! Very reasonable priced and good sized portions.
Laid back environment with friendly outgoing staff. The food was really good! Cool music in the background that puts you in a good mood, I highly recommend this restaurant.
Cafe Republic has consistently good coffee and service. The staff are always very friendly and efficient. I have been to the cafe for many different occasions, and never been disappointed.
Table service is attentive. They let us have the lunch menu early which was great. Ordered the tasting platter and bruschetta. It was lovely but the bruschetta was unusual with pumpkin. It probably wasn’t the nicest one we have eaten but it was ok. Absolutely fab caramel banana dessert.
Fabulous choice of fare and delicious, generous sized serves. Our friends loved it and we appreciated our waiter's dry sense of humour in deciphering my husband's rather pesky food peeves and fetishes!! Not the first time we've been to Café Republic and we'll be back again.
This is the third time that I have visited cafe republic with my family. On each occasion the food, service and hospitality has been excellent. I will definitely return and I would also highly recommend to anyone else who is wishing for an enjoyable dining experience.
Good food and coffee. Must say though it was a bit noisy as there were workmen inside installing some wall fixtures using a hammer drill, think they could have done so at a less busy time than a Saturday morning.
The restaurant had an entirely different menu listed on their website. The staff knew nothing about it and said it must be outdated as they had seen it and had worked their for 8 months etc. was very frustrating as one of the reasons we chose to go their was after looking at their menu and absolutely none of what we wanted was available.
