ALL DAY, EVERY DAY
Common Man Coffee Roasters
It’s hard to say what we like more here: the fussy, make-em-10-different-ways, house-roasted coffee or the elevated but squarely rustic brunch options that we haven’t really seen anywhere else. The Turkish Common Man Breakfast is a popular choice, and consists of phyllo-wrapped soft-boiled egg served with feta, olives, hummus and pita. But also amazing, is the Veggie Wonderland, eggs with haloumi and spinach.
This pretty blue-and-white tiled spot in a heritage building on Neil Road feels a bit like brunching in Melbourne or Berkeley. The brunch menu puts front and center our favorite thing about brunch: the sides. Mix and match from over 20 options like toast, avocado, cauliflower and cheese, grilled sausage, eggs and lots more. Or go for one of their decadent plates of lobster roll or French toast.
Sacha & Sons
There’s more to brunch than just eggs Benedict, and if you have any kind of New York Jewish deli nostalgia, look no further than this faux-vintage spot at Mandarin Gallery. We prefer our brunches standalone, but where else can you find bagel and lox, pastrami sandwiches, smoked salmon and latkes all in one delicious place? It’s not deli cheap, but it’s good.
How often do restaurants offer Thai street food for breakfast? At Long Chim, a la carte selections from its weekend brunch menu range from house favorites like spicy pork with rice cakes to green curry with chicken and eggplants, available from 12-4pm. The buffet includes cocktail choices such as the Siracha Bloody Mary and Mandarin Mimosa. $60++ per person.
Eggplant salad, Long Chim
It won the Best Brunch category in our Readers’ Choice Awards, and for very good reasons. As great as Bjorn Shen’s Mediterranean-meets-graffiti-chic restaurant is for dinner, its unique brunch options are hard to find anywhere else. We’ll gladly get out of bed and queue up at 11am (or, if you’re organized, make a reservation a couple days in advance) for their hearty, pickle-kick cauliflower sabbich and the to-share lamb-packed shakshouka.

If you approach brunch like a Spanish siesta, then this four hour-long Sunday Champagne Brunch (12-4pm) at Pan Pacific Singapore is perfect for those who prefer to dine gastronomic-style. One of its draws is the sheer quantity of food on display—it has 16 food stations spread across seven live food theaters. What’s new are their caviar bar, a jumbo burger station, peking duck station and two additional cocktail bars. There is also unlimited Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne, and a selection of cocktails, and red and white wines. $178 per person.
For a blowout brunch, fancy schmancy hotel buffets can’t be beat. This one at Parkroyal at Pickering’s on-site restaurant from 12:30pm till 4:30pm is lovely. In an airy light filled dining room, dig into an assortment of poached prawns, mussels, sashimi and more at their seafood bar, or go for the more meat-centric offerings of roasted wagyu topside, leg of lamb or traditional German schnitzel. It’s all surprisingly affordable: $68++ per adult.
This hip tapas restaurant is now open for brunch on Sundays from 10:30am-3pm, with a la carte, brunch-only highlights like baked Shropshire blue cheese omelette ($19), chargrilled bacon steak ($19), beef tongue hash ($25), as well as popular plates such as sea urchin pudding ($22 for half portion, $42 for full portion). Of course, drinking before 12pm is encouraged, with choices of Champagne, wines, sherry and whisky from Old and New World labels.
