Start making your weekend plans now

The new dining-in rule may be a bummer, but we’ve got to look on the bright side. So now that no more than two pax per table are allowed at eateries islandwide, just bring along a friend or your partner for a quaint brunch date at the following cafes.

Cafe Kreams


Known as the autumn-themed Korean cafe at Tanjong Pagar, Cafe Kreams is the perfect place to give your Insta feed an update. Here, try unique lattes such as the Goguma Latte (Sweet Potato Latte) and Dalgona Latte (using actual Dalgona candy), then pair those saccharine drinks with scones of unconventional flavours. Heartier eats are also in the mix, and they include meatball stews, sausage platters and pizzas.

French Fold


This popular crepe cafe by Merci Marcel is perfect for a lazy brunch date. Just sit and watch the world go by over sweet treats like the No. 14 that boasts 70 percent Valrhona chocolate, or the No. 22 that comes with home-made ice cream from Bird of Paradise.

Park Bench Deli


Since its return as an all-day diner, Park Bench Deli has only grown in popularity as a spot for lunch catch-ups with friends. Order new options like the Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes as well as the Italian Hero sandwich; desserts like the Creme Brulee Bomboloni are available too.

Prairie By Craftsmen


Located at Bukit Timah’s Cluny Court, Prairie by Craftsmen is a picturesque glasshouse cafe with a courtyard to match. Opened earlier this year, breakfast items flood the menu here with quintessential dishes like Eggs on Toast, Acai Bowl and Smoked Almond & Avocado Croissant. Coffee from Craftsmen Specialty Coffee include Roasted Almond Latte, Butterscotch Latte and Baileys Latte.

The Populus Cafe


It doesn’t get better than brunch at The Populus Cafe, where eats like All Day Big Brekky and Buckwheat Pancakes entice. Coffee is also the gastro-cafe’s speciality, so try their cold brews and double-shot lattes too.
