If you wait in the line stretching down La Brea on a weekend morning, you’ll be greatly rewarded by our favorite brunch in Los Angeles. The interior looks more like a cathedral than a restaurant, which is fitting, since Republique is basically a shrine to breakfast. There’s an entire pastry case of sweets to choose from, and a full brunch menu with items like shakshouka, kimchi fried rice, and chicken and waffles. But what you’re really here for is the best French toast in the world – a super thick brioche, cooked pain perdu-style: perfectly soft and fluffy, with crispy edges, and a gooey center.
