From the outside, Republic Coffee Traders looks like just another of the trade businesses in the industrial precinct of East Brisbane, but step inside the doors and you’ll find a haven of all things brunch. Instead of tools and tradies, you’ll find smooth coffee and a scrumptious breakfast and lunch menu in this warehouse.
Breakfast is served from a bright and early 6am right up until 2am – good news for both early risers and anyone who likes to wait until noon to tuck into a plate of eggs and bacon. More creative dishes include the crisp corn and cheddar hush puppies (think deep fried corn bread) with gooey poached eggs and bean salsa but you might like to stick to favourites like the breakfast burger piled with fried egg, bacon and cheddar.
For lunch, the menu is short but sweet, and if you started work at 5am and are ready for a spicy chicken burger with apple cabbage slaw and fries by 9am, they’ve got you covered – lunch is available from 6am too.
