Best brunch spots in Singapore

22 February 2020

It’s close to the weekend and all we want to do is stay in bed a little longer, and snooze that alarm that has been banging our heads for the past five days. While breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but during the weekends, it’s almost impossible to wake up that early anymore. The only best way to start the weekend right is by having brunch with your friends and families, and put work aside.

Here are some of our best brunch spots in Singapore, that’s worth adding onto your foodie checklist.

1. Merci Marcel
Explore quaint Tiong Bahru and seek respite at Merci Marcel for a perfect brunch delight. Located in an enclave filled with numerous cafes, Merci Marcel stands out for its homey alfresco dining, that leads into an even more beautifully chic interior designed dining space. This is the spot to be for brunch with your girlfriends, where you get to indulge in authentic French bakes, such as their croissants and pain au chocolat. You’ll be delighted to know that their bakes are made with 100% French butter - for maximum indulgent. Also try their organic specialties from Croque Marcel to Eggs Benedict, where the eggs are velvety and creamy, paired with freshly oven-baked rustic bread.

For picture perfect memories, dine at the seats further in the restaurant where you’ll get to enjoy the natural sunlight and bask in all its glory. You can thank us later! Or shall I say merci?

2. Good Bites
Located in Bishan, Good Bites serves up healthy dishes that your body will thank for. Who said brunch are only meant for eggs and toasts? We’re all guilty of putting junk food in our body, but it’s never too late to opt for greens once in a while.

At Good Bites, you can order their mains such as the sublime Baked Salmon or Chicken Sub, which features juicy chicken thigh with sautéed mushrooms and purple cabbage, packed in between toasted sourdough bread. If you’re up for pasta, try their signature Laksa Pasta – spicy and tangy, this plate of goodness is a true testament to Singapore’s iconic local dish.

4. Wakey Wakey
Conveniently located in Central Singapore, Wakey Wakey is serious about their coffee. Using only specialty coffee beans, the café serves as a regular coffee spot for office workers in the Bugis precinct. While their coffee is brew-ly good, we’re equally impressed with their selection of curated food.

With its bare walls and wooden furniture that are juxtaposed with big potted plants, Wakey Wakey manages to pull off a chic industrial look - a definite yes for your Instagram posts. Fill up your belly and create your own grain bowl fix, with choices such as pan-seared seaweed salmon to sous vide beef tenderloin. Or if you’re in the mood for something sweet, you can never go wrong with their signature Buttermilk Waffles with Fresh Fruits served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

Nestled in a rustic shophouse in Tanjong Pagar, Group Therapy Duxton is a household name for brunch lovers. With its intimate, loft-like interior that’s paired with impeccable coffee and food, it comes as no surprise that many pick this café as their favourite brunch spot. Order their no-frills Poached Eggs on Toast – a simple brunch meal that packs a punch, where they are generous with the Hollandaise sauce that blankets the perfectly poached eggs, atop a crispy toast. Pair it with a cup of Flat White, and you’re ready to soak up the weekend fun!
