RUMORVILLE: Fig Tree Cafe Owner to Take Over North Park's Western Steakburger For New Concept Breakfast Republic

November 11, 2014

North Park's Western Steakburger space will soon be taken over by Johan Engman of Fig Tree Café to be transformed into Breakfast Republic to open in 2015 (two locations are reportedly in the works). Engman purchased the 1600 square foot building located at 2730 University Avenue and records show that plans are underway for this new concept. Engman currently co-owns and operates three Fig Tree locations - Pacific Beach, Hillcrest and Liberty Station, and also recently opened Café Cantata, a coffee shop in Del Mar. Western Steakburger remains open.
