Brunch is one of the things you ‘do’ in Singapore. Most restaurants offer options on either Saturday, Sunday or both.
Choosing a venue however is not as straight forward as you might think. Brunch in Singapore runs the gamut from a cheeky bacon and egg sarny to free flow champagne and all you can eat buffets. And pretty much anything in between.
Here are a few different options.
A no frills brunch at Kith Cafe, Robertson Quay
If it’s a bustling location in a shady spot by the river, with good coffee and fuss free food you’re after, Kith is the place. Order inside and then wait for your goodies to arrive. The staff are friendly and most importantly, the baristas make good coffee.
There’s a good selection on the menu: poached eggs; ham and cheese sandwiches; a full breakfast; brioche; fruit and there’s also fresh juices and of course coffee.
A flat white is $3.80. Sandwiches and breakfast options range from about $5 to $12.

Casual with the option of champagne – Graze at Martin Place
The modern building and decor at Graze are home to a casual but classy restaurant offering a chilled out brunch on the weekends. Ordering is from a list, there is no buffet. The cast iron pan of bacon, eggs and other savoury treats ($25) is definitely the crowd pleaser here.
If you’re not up to that then there are plenty of other options from muesli through to a breakfast platter.
What I really like is that you can get a good range of champagne and wines by the glass if you so choose, or you can opt for the $25 free flow wine option – cin cin!

Fine Italian dining with free flow Prosecco – Garibaldi
The Garibaldi brunch is served to you from a long list of interesting and very tasty Italian food. Garibaldi provides table service and they also have printed menus so you can prime your tastebuds for the exciting food they’re about to enjoy.
Appetisers on our visit that included oysters, beef carpaccio, scallops and crisp-breads with white anchovies and ricotta. Then there was a selection of pasta and meat that I forced myself to eat even though I was stuffed. Ditto for the dessert. Brunch is $98 and includes free flow Prosecco. Very good value.

The High end at the Hyatt – Mezza9
Possibly because this was my first ‘proper’ brunch in Singapore, it has remained my favourite. I’m not usually one for 5* hotels and all the trappings that go with that, but Mezza9 at the Hyatt is certainly an exception. It might have something to do with the free flow Perrier Jouet Champagne (one of my favourites), but it’s also about the colourful and tantalising array of foods from around the world.
The seafood is definitely the stand out. Oysters in particular are out of this world. The scampi or langoustines are also too good to resist.
You can select from a wide range of Japanese and Chinese food that is cooked in front of you, as well as an English style carvery.
You do need to leave room for the phenomenal desserts and cheese board though. It’s not cheap, around $160++ per head.

Look online for more Singapore brunch deals
There are so many other options its impossible to list them all here, but these four choices provide you with some great places to start. Brunch is a Singaporean tradition so you’ll find plenty of the latest offers and fresh reviews of Brunch venues online. My advice, grab a lock SIM a the airport when you arrive and use the internet to find the best local deals. There’s some useful advice on using cellphones while travelling all you need is your passport.
I have so many fond memories of brunches in Singapore. Its a must on your next visit!
