FAMILY-FRIENDLY SUNDAY BRUNCH AT OUR FAVE SINGAPORE CAFÉS
1. Prive at Keppel Bay
If you like your pancakes with a view (of the beautiful Keppel bay), Privé Café is the brunch joint for you. Its home-style pancakes are fluffy stacks of goodness served with fresh strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, maple syrup, and honeycomb (which we totally love, of course!). There are even gluten-free options that are just as tasty and twice as healthy. Plus, it has a playground!
Where: 2 Keppel Bay Vista, Singapore City 098382
2. Botanico at The Garage
Embedded in the gorgeous greenery of the Botanic Gardens, Botanico is a chic restaurant serving up ‘gifts of soil, land and sea’. Start your morning with delicately smoked organic egg and choose from seasonally selected mains.
Where: 50 Cluny Park Road, Singapore Botanic Gardens (Bukit Timah Gate), Singapore 257488
When: Sun, 11.30am to 2.30pm
PS.Cafe is an eternal brunch fave – it’s got an awesome range of food, but the truffle fries are truly moreish. We love the Harding Road branch, surrounded by all that lush greenery! But the pièce de resistance is the Ann Siang Hill branch: it has a menu featuring sharing plates – great for small hands and small mouths who can’t always eat a full portion on their own. Kids will love the grilled cheese, served with smoky tomato soup (wear your napkin like a bib as it will splatter everywhere!), smashed avocado on toast with a poached egg, Impossible sliders on brioche and of course the banana and berry pancakes for dessert. For an additional $60 per person, you can add on a free-flow option if you’re hankering for a Bloody Mary or some bubbles.
Where: Various locations around Singapore
4. Common Man Coffee Roasters
Sometimes brunch just isn’t so great without good coffee… and that’s where Common Man Coffee Roasters comes in. Serving all-day breakfast with favourites such as fluffy pancakes, crunchy granola and kale and egg-white scramble, the coffee goes just right with the highlights on the menu. Food portions are on the larger side and you’ll likely need to split a dish or two with the munchkins. Get there early over the weekend otherwise you’ll get stuck sitting at a high table or at the bar – not the easiest for kiddos. But the coffee is worth it!
Where: 22 Martin Road 01-00, Singapore 239058
Serving up breakfast and brunch favourites all day everyday, Cafe Melba is a home away from home for many of us at HoneyKids HQ. Sip on your cappuccino and scoff down favourites such as eggs florentine (for a healthy kick!) or a full English if you’re really hungry. The kids menu includes French toast cubes, pancakes, a full English (in mini form!) and the usual faves such as pizza and pasta.
Where: Goodman Arts Centre, 90 Goodman Road, Blk N #01-56, Singapore 439053; Mediapolis, 1 Stars Avenue, #03-01, Singapore 138507
5. Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar
Brunch is available until 4pm at Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar, and the extensive menu includes eggs any which way! Also included are waffles, pancakes, French toast, granola… there’s something to suit each and every palate from picky eaters to more adventurous ones.
Where: 56 Tanglin Rd, #01-03, Singapore 247964
OverEasy is perfect for people-watching, and this Fullerton address offers serious views… plus kid-friendly, American diner food. Think a full fry-up, New York-style loaded bagels, and pancakes galore… all with a side of a milkshake float! High chairs are available for tots, too.
Where: 1 Fullerton Rd, #01-06, Singapore 049213
7. Jones the Grocer
Known Australia-wide as the purveyors of fine gourmet produce, Jones the Grocer has a huge food emporium at Dempsey. It’s our go-to for weekday takeaway coffee and weekend lazy breakfasts. And did we mention it’s a dog-friendly venue too? The rainbow cake is so good that our kids actually eat it all (instead of just the usual icing lick).
Where: Block 9 Dempsey Road, #01-12 Dempsey Hill, Singapore, 247697
8. Baker & Cook
Baker & Cook has branches all over town, but our favourite has to be the one in Dempsey at the Core Collective. Brunch staples such as eggs, pancakes, French toast and bagels are all on the menu… but you’ll most definitely be tempted by the freshly baked breads and pastries!
Where: 30C Loewen Road, Singapore 248839
9. Open Farm Community
One of our fave spots to take the kids for a feast is Open Farm Community. There’s a huge sandpit for the kids to play in, a garden, a collection of quirky sculptures, a Common Man roasters coffee shop (the Farmacy… yes, coffee is sometimes the medicine we all need!) and a sprawling green. The brunch menu includes eggs, sandwiches, healthy bowls, salads and a kids’ menu with all the favourites. Check out our other fave Dempsey hangouts here.
Where: 130E Minden Road, Singapore 248819
10. Carrotsticks & Cravings
Planning to go organic? Head to Carrotsticks & Cravings for açai bowls and avocado toast for breakfast and quinoa tarts and salads for lunch. Meanwhile, the kids will be kept happy and healthy with mini cupcakes, fruity popsicles and energy balls: they’ll need the fuel for all the running around they’ll be doing in the open spaces surrounding the place. It’s walk-in only though, folks: no reservations.
Where: Various locations around Singapore.
11. Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant
Full of family-friendly favourites, such as croque madame (a fancy grilled ham and cheese sandwich) and chicken and waffles, everyone will be scrambling for the American-style pancakes at Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant. This place fills up pretty quickly over the weekend, so we suggest booking ahead to avoid disappointment. Warning: this one serves American-sized portions, so go hungry!
Where: 31 Purvis St, Singapore 188608
12. Forty Hands
With Australian-style brunch and delicious coffee to boot, Forty Hands is a great one to duck into for a quick bite. The usual suspects are on the menu, including smashed avo on toast, croque monsieur (on a croissant from neighbourhood bakery Tiong Bahru Bakery, no less!), and banana bacon French toast. Don’t skip out on the coffee here – it’s all that and more!
Where: Tiong Bahru, 78 Yong Siak Street, Singapore 163078; Joo Chiat, 226 East Coast Road, Singapore, Singapore 428923
13. Toby’s Estate
Another one for the coffee fanatics: Toby’s Estate in Robertson Quay serves up amazing Aussie coffee along with all-day breakfast. Indulge in eggs Benedict one of three ways, or some French toast for those with a sweeter tooth. The kids’ menu includes pancakes and the always-favourite mac and cheese… we might just have to steal a bite for ourselves! The cafe also has high chairs for tots and some toys by the side to keep small hands entertained at the table. Oh, and there’s plenty of space to leave a stroller by the door.
Where: 8 Rodyk St, Singapore 238216
14. Wild Honey
With multiple branches in Singapore (including Mandarin Gallery, Scott’s Square and South Beach), Wild Honey is a perennial Sunday brunch fave. With coffee from Common Man Coffee Roasters, the food menu has something for carnivores, herbivores (vegetarian and vegan) and pescatarians. Ask for a high chair for your tiny tot. Oh, and order a side of Brazilian bread – small dough balls with cheese inside!
Where: Various locations around Singapore.
