15 Best Cafes for Brunch Singapore

Tags: , ,

Dining out – albeit limited to two pax for now – is back and we couldn’t be more excited. Here’s the rundown on the best brunch places to make a bang for your buck.

In my humble opinion, brunch is one of those social meals that spawned from #adulting. Breakfast is too early because it is a cardinal sin to wake up at 7am on a weekend, and since lunch usually drags on till late afternoon, it’s difficult to plan a gym session or run errands later in the day. 

Enter the concept of brunch, a meal that’s enjoyed between breakfast and lunch on weekends. What this means for busy socialites like us is that we get to sleep in until 10am, meet with our favourite people over a meal, go to the gym at 4pm and still have ample time to meet bae for dinner at 6pm. The best thing about brunch is that your ‘engines’ have fired up and you’re in the right mindspace to catch up with friends and share interesting anecdotes about how Karen’s negativity has been extremely tiresome this week or the awkward lunch you had with Alex on Tuesday. 

So, if you’re looking for a nice brunch place that serves up Insta-worthy plates or a boozy hotel brunch buffet, here are 15 great weekend brunch ideas to consider.

The grandfather of all brunch places, and the one that made breakfast for dinner acceptable in Singapore, Wild Honey has been around for as long as we can remember. You may raise an eyebrow or two at their prices, but rest assured that you’re getting your money’s worth. Here, servings are larger than usual. So, technically, you could order two mains to share if you’re visiting as a party of three or four. 

What’s really impressive is that even though it’s been around for so long, Wild Honey has managed to maintain their standards, regardless of the store you visit, without skimping on portion or quality.

The unmistakable scent of freshly-brewed coffee and the familiar clang of a busy cafe. Walking into Common Man Coffee Roasters is like stepping into a cafe in Australia or Korea. You can expect good coffee here, but what really makes them stand out from the rest is their food menu. Common Man Coffee Roasters tries to put a lighter and healthier spin to classic brunch items, so expect dishes like sauteed kale with egg white scramble, organic eggs Benedict, crab salad and warm Asian grain bowl here. 

The only downside is that they do not accept reservations (even for larger groups), so be prepared to queue.
