We enjoyed two drinks each as well as a plate of chips.

Good value for a total of A$18 including GST.

Staff were pleasant as we watched the number 8 trams trundling by.

It's close to Metro's South Yarra railway station.

We made a special effort to go and have dinner here. When we arrived no-one could find our reservation and we were seated inside; we found it so noisy we asked to be moved outside.
Our orders were taken in good time and we made the point, that was acknowledged, that we wanted the salmon without the seafood sauce.
When after 30 minutes our meals had not been delivered we went inside and asked where they were and were told they'd be out shortly. We saw what appeared to be 2 salmon meals with what looked to be seafood broth on the counter and when we asked if they were ours were told that they were but they'd been made with the seafood.
About 10 minutes later 2 meals were delivered to the table both were sitting on a bed of seafood; completely contrary to our acknowledged request.
We went and complained to the manager who offered to re-make them but that it would take at least 15-20 minutes. We declined the offer and left almost an hour after arriving without eating.

Came here for brunch on a Saturday morning (as you do when you're in Melbourne), and was very underwhelmed by the food. I ordered poached eggs with a side of croquettes. The eggs were poached well but it was an overpriced dish for what it was - basically two eggs with a small bit of Turkish bread (which wasn't buttered - had to get the waitress to bring me some separately) that was so hard I couldn't cut into it with my knife. The croquettes were under-seasoned and not hot inside. Rather disappointing considering how many better brunch places there are in Melbourne!

Needed a "salt-free" breakfast and they were very accommodating !
Poached eggs - hard centers , tomato, mushrooms, avocado and wilted spinach - all fresh and beautifully cooked - served with tea and toast!
Toward high priced but very fresh produce and great service !

We spend a week in South Yarra and ate at the Republic several times. It was an excellent cafe with an expansive menu. Breakfasts were great (as we found all over Australia) and we also really enjoyed several lunches after day-trips. Their iced tea was terrific--homemade. The staff: helpful, friendly kids and it was fun talking to them and hearing about their jobs and experiences.
