OB Warehouse has served the vibrant beachfront community of Ocean Beach since August of 2014. Now, on February 14th, this Cohn Restaurant Group-owned business bids “farewell” as it closes its doors for good. Moving into the space is Rise & Shine Restaurant Group’s morning sensation; Breakfast Republic.
Johan Engman, founder and owner of Rise & Shine (which also owns and operates three Fig Tree Cafés and other new concepts launching in 2017) has partnered with David Cohn for this new Breakfast Republic location. “It gives me great pleasure to do business with David, says Johan. He is more than a restauranteur; he is a true San Diego icon.” Although this is their first, and only joint venture (and the new Breakfast Republic remains a holding of Rise & Shine), Johan looks forward to working with David as a mentor and friend.
Known for their innovative breakfast menu, bright & colorful décor, and humor-cracking signage, Breakfast Republic has hatched another location in Encinitas. The Encinitas location is the first North County location for the brand, and is also the largest at 3,500 square feet plus an additional 700 square foot patio space. New décor/design pieces for this location include an ‘egg-cellent’ lounge area with egg chairs and tables, and cheeky sayings written across booth tables, such as “Brunch: The socially acceptable excuse for day drinking.”
