This is not the entire list of restaurants / cafes for brunch in Singapore, that’s for sure, but more of those that I’ve tried and tested. With that said, the post will be updated with time.

It isn’t necessarily the best cafe for brunch whilst I was there months ago when they were only recently opened.

Wooden tables, wooden chair. Some of the seats might not be the most comfortable, the crowd makes you feel like you’re in another country. And with that, you seep into the atmosphere. Acceptable food and hot beverages. This cafe has its prices at a nett price (no GST & service charge).

If you want to dine in a cutesy, pink, flowery environment for a change, you can try this, already cutely named restaurant, Pique Nique. Cool word play, I say. Although there isn’t much to choose from the All-Day Breakfast Menu, it is still quite refreshing for an ambience like this.

Telephone: 6238 6705

Breakfast at the Stables. Who wouldn’t want to experience that at least one? I had the chance to dine there, at the balcony overlooking the stables just directly diagonally below me. It was all sorts of brilliance.

It being a cafe that sells pancakes, I’m sure it can be taken as a brunch / breakfast item at any point in time. I love that they have both savory and sweet pancakes on the menu – all for your happiness. Be warned though, they have very limited seats, be there before it opens or risk being disappointed.

Telephone: 6734 2700

It’s really as plain a design, both interior and exterior, as the cafe’s name, The Plain. Simplistic yet elegant though, the cafe is quite a nice place to sit down and have a coffee. But for me it’s as far as it gets. Its items aren’t the most impressive.
Address: 50 Craig Road, #01-01
Telephone: 6225 4387
Brunch Hours: 7.30am – 7.30pm (Daily)
Sure they aren’t consistent in its Poached Eggs, but when they ace it, they ace it well. One of the many breakfast / brunch cafes along Robertson Quay, Toby’s Estate is yet another cafe, Australian, that starts business real early, from the too-early-for-Singaporeans 7.30am.

7.30am – 10pm (Thurs – Sat)
TWG Tea Company.
Although slightly on the pricey side (over $30), TWG Tea Company offers brunch menu on weekends. They have quite a number of set menus available for your pleasure. Imagine freshly brewed tea, with what seems like miniature pastries on the golden plated holders. And a main course. Yes, ultimate pampering.

This has to be the best Eggs Benedict I’ve had. That calls for a ‘go’ for anyone, if you’re on the search for some awesome Eggs Benedict. Besides that, Wild Honey offers a lot more other breakfast items (from all over the country), what with the new outlet opened at Scotts Square now. Sad to say, they don’t take reservations for the outlet at Mandarin Gallery.
Address (Outlet In Context): #03-02, Mandarin Gallery, Orchard Road
Telephone: 6235 3900
Brunch Hours: 9am – 10pm (Daily)
