Breakfast Republic restaurant

San Diego eatery serves up 'egg-citing' dishes from a local ranch!

When you come to Breakfast Republic in the Mission Valley neighborhood of San Diego, you know you're going to have fun—cracked eggs are your seats, eggbeaters are your lights and the décor is a playful scramble of egg jokes and food puns. All is on the menu at this restaurant, where they don't take themselves too seriously, but are dishing out some seriously delicious food! 

When the restaurant opened in 2015, brunch was just another meal in San Diego. But Executive Chef Cesar Garcia has worked closely with owner Johan Engman to create a menu that is both classic and eclectic.

Home to inventive dishes and wildly imaginative riffs on the classics, Breakfast Republic relies on the ever-versatile egg as the base of many of their menu items. On average, they go through a couple hundred a day at this location. And for all those eggs, they turn to Eben-Haezer Poultry Ranch in nearby Ramona. The ranch is a short 45-minute drive from Breakfast Republic's location in San Diego and is still owned and operated by the same family since they started it in 1955.

With roughly 50,000 birds on their ranch, the family takes great pride in the fact that you can taste the difference in their eggs. That's because they pay close attention to each and every chicken and egg. After the eggs are collected, washed and sorted, off they go to restaurants across the area or to Eben-Haezer's own retail shop at the ranch, "The Hen House."  The family offers a variety of farm-fresh products at the shop as a way to connect with the community and help educate them about one of the last poultry ranches in the area.
