Brunch at Bread Republic
Sunny Saturday morning, fresh Beiruti breeze, and a sweet get together date with dear ones after a long departure dictated a cozy outdoor outing over some cozy meal… & Bread Republic perfectly serves this purpose.
Located in a walking distance from where I was residing in Hamra, it was refreshing to get to Bread Republic amidst an odd collection of beautiful old houses and shops that are threatened of being demolished in favor of the new elegant, glass and cement towers that are invading Ras Beirut. We chose to sit outside, taking benefit from the warmth of the sun, beside some friendly international tourists, journalists and a bunch of college students.
Bread Republic offers home-made like platters and freshly squeezed juices. My omelette was composed of eggs scrambled with gruyere cheese, wrapping fresh green thyme leaves, chopped tomatoes, a sprinkle of green onions. The omelette was perfectly paired with a freshly baked slice of bread… It was a pure delight on such a lazy beautiful Saturday :)
