Breakfast Republic, San Diego, 3/25/21

Liberty Station

Breakfast Republic is part of a chain of places in southern California.  They serve innovative breakfast combinations surrounded by tons of fun, almost kitsch decorations.  We visited the location in Liberty Station built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style which was the site of the Naval Training Center in 1923.  The chain supports composting of uneaten foods and recycling.  This location had 2 good sized heated patios to dine on.  They are open daily from 7 to 3.  Service was friendly, masked and efficient.  While the food sounded great in the menu I would rate it acceptable + with generous portions.

Shrimp and grits breakfast was made with gouda cheese infused grits and shrimp cooked with hot sauce and plated with fresh sweet corn, chives and served with 3 eggs.  We chose poached eggs.  The grits were tasty and the corn was nicely accented with chili seasoning.  The shrimp were cooked nicely and it was not spicy.  Fine

Breakfast Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese was topped with parmesan breadcrumbs, chives and three eggs any style.  I chose poached eggs and upgraded to jurassic pork (thick cut bacon marinated and baked with paprika and brown sugar).  It came in a good sized skillet and the poached eggs were cooked more than I’d like but still had a little runny quality. There was a ton of bacon in the dish but it was not overly flavorful.  In fact it was a tad sweet.  The mac-n-cheese was not as creamy as it should be but did have a fair amount of cheese.  Good but forgettable.
