Brunch in Singapore: Restaurants and cafes that serve the best eggs benedict, seafood platters and grain bowls
You deserve it
Oh, the B-word. Often, the thought of digging into a good brunch dish brings forth a tremendous amount of pleasure and joy.
1. You get to sleep in.
2. You get to have a good meal after.
Truth be told, we can't think of anything more sublime to do on the weekends or on our days off. While you might already have your trusty list of favourite spots, here are three newcomers to the brunch scene that deserve a shoutout. After all, there's always room for more.
You might know Alter Ego as the go-to for poke bowls and sinful bar grub, but now, this hip café is fortunately open for brunch. Introducing a stellar line-up of salivating dishes, you'll be spoilt for choice with their salmon cake benedict, poke on toast (Pokecado Toast) and a hearty platter of french toast, topped with ice-cream and mini pretzels. And instead of their usual T2 tea jugs, take your drink order up a notch with one of their extremely sinful thickshakes. Flavours include salted caramel and matcha — who can say no to that?
Alter Ego's brunch menu is available on weekends, from 11am-3pm
#01-13D, Esplanade Mall, Tel: 6327 9301
Folks who love their seafood will be delighted to know that Bayswater Kitchen have recently rolled out their Sunday brunch menu. Against the serene and stunning water views at Keppel Bay on Keppel Island, soak in the relaxing vibes as you tuck into highlights like their soft-shell crab benedict and grilled prawn and calamari salad. If you're looking to really indulge yourself, order the Fisherman's Potluck — a delightful medley of lobster, prawns, squid, mussels, fish, potatoes, and sweet corn. Wash all that down with a chilled glass of sweet Rosé and you're set for the rest of the day.
Bayswater Kitchen's brunch menu is available on Sunday, from 11.30am-5pm

The good folk behind Sarnies have done it again; this time with a focus on healthy grains and homemade pickles. Perched on the fourth floor of The Working Capitol, Pickleville looks every bit like a millennial's haven. It features a chic backdrop of tropical wall motifs and a menu that serves hearty, nutritious rice bowls and open-faced toasts (you can't go wrong with avo on toast). Apart from their consistent pour of coffee, we also suggest taking a chance on one of their wholesome smoothies — for instance, their peanut butter smoothie sees a delectable blend of almond milk, banana, peanut butter, and goji berries. In our books, that's a winning combination.
Pickleville's brunch menu is available from Monday to Friday, from 8am-6pm
#04-00, 140 Robinson Road, The Working Capitol on Robinson
