No better way to start the weekend, right?

Weekends are always better with brunch. To know where to grab some within the East Coast neighbourhood, just continue scrolling. And don’t forget to call your best pals to join you for a cuppa.
 

Brawn & Brains Coffee
 


 

If you live for weekend brunches, then a trip down to Brawn & Brains Coffee at 218 East Coast Road will put you in a good mood. The second cafe opened by the BB Group is a hotspot that celebrates specialty coffee and hearty comfort food made with simple yet fresh ingredients. Think Avo on Multigrain Toast, Grilled Bratwurst with eggs and crispy potato hash, as well as the popular Crispy Grilled Cheese Sandwich filled with gouda, aged cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan. Those mains along with their creamy white cold brew truly make a winning combination.
 

Forty Hands
 


 

It’s an all-day breakfast menu at Forty Hands, located at 226 East Coast Road. The Croque Monsieur, Big Boy Breakfast and Eggs Benedict are some of the highlights; also try the Stinky Har Cheong Gai Waffle if you’d like a locally-inspired brunch special.


Fresh Fruits Lab
 


 

Obviously inspired by fresh produce, Fresh Fruits Lab along Changi Road boasts fruity twists to the usual cafe mains offered. Consider the Mango Caviar Pasta for a dish topped with baked scallops, a fresh quail egg and mango caviar, or the Otah Slider served with a fruit salad for a refreshing finish. For drinks, sip on a glass of Fruits Infused Soda or Fresh Juice to detox and wind down.


Group Therapy Coffee
 


 

Like its name suggests, Group Therapy Coffee is a worthy choice for brunch hangouts with the crew. And that’s mostly thanks to an extensive menu featuring pasta dishes, homemade bagels and pancakes, so there’s always something for everyone. Non-coffee drinkers will be satisfied with a wide selection of hot chocolates, matcha latte and coolers.


Project Acai
 


 

The largest branch of this local acai cafe is located in Katong, making it the perfect spot for laidback afternoon brunches. Besides vegan-friendly acai bowls, Project Acai offers toast and smoothies too. With an indoor and outdoor seating area, you’ll never have to jostle for space either.
