Singapore is not just the perfect shopping and sight-seeing destination. It also serves two of the best things almost everyone in the world could not survive without: coffee and breakfast. Even during trips, we all seem to go for brunches rather than an early breakfast meal. Why not? Traveling often means late night dawdling and late morning sleep-ins anyway.
It is a good thing the Singaporeans share the same mind set – they totally love brunch, too! Of course, it’s not only your appointment for your annual travel insurance for another Singapore trip that needs a spot in your schedule – having brunches in superb cafes around the area does, too! And to help you out, we’ve listed some of the best ones for you:
The Provision Shop
Sitting at the flats of Everton Park is The Provision Shop, an equally quaint but homey cafe that offers its hungry patrons a very relaxed eating experience. But what makes it even more exceptional is their focus on the source of the food that they serve. They make sure that their food is made from ingredients that come from eco-friendly farms that practice responsible farming. You might be thinking that this makes their food a bit pricey, but the surprising thing is, it is still pretty reasonably priced. And once you get a bite of their food, what you have paid for is really worth it.
Enjoy the Sea Salt Lemonade, Eggs Florentine, Eggs Benedict, Belinda’s Perogis, Burrata and Homemade Pesto, and more!
The Providore Raffles Place
The Providore provides its patrons a place where they can just escape the busy setting of Singapore. Serving a full range of artisanal brunch dishes that come from their own establishment, The Grocery; the cafe is nestled in Pasarbella where the lush greenery becomes the perfect respite from the city.
Expect to taste their buttery Croissant, the hearty Croque Madame, and their highly recommended Ricotta Pancakes. For drinks, make sure to try their cold-pressed fruit juices, or if you love chocolate, their Iced Chocolate drink that is rich in chocolate made smooth and creamy with milk.
If you are looking for a place where you and your travel companions can just relax and be laid-back, Drury Lane is one of the best places to go to. In fact, it has the perfect cosy vibe and heavenly comfort food that you can pair it with.
Get a taste of their special brew to jump start your late morning than chomp down on a creamy Salted Egg Yolk Eggs Benedict with Grilled Prawns or the Baked Eggs with Smoked Trout and Capers. Drury Lane is certainly innovative when it comes to their dishes, you will probably enjoy old favourites prepared with a new twist here.
We all joke about hipsters being, well, hipsters; we are also on the lookout for cafes and restaurants that offer a new vibe you could not possible find elsewhere. Well, you will definitely find it in Symmetry Cafe. With its brick walls and pop-art decor, this cafe exudes the indie Singaporean vibe. Try out their Truffle Eggs Mushrooms or the Symmetry Eggs Benedict with its well-toasted English muffins.
If you find yourself in Singapore again, make sure to drop by these cafes for a hearty brunch you will not forget.
