Heading out for a lazy brunch this weekend? Check out our list of the best brunch cafes on the island!
56 Eng Hoon St, Tiong Bahru
Pretend you’re a Parisian at this chic French bistro in Tiong Bahru. Pull up a seat at the long bar or grab an alfresco table out the back and feel like you’re dining in a hip laneway in Melbourne. The breakfast menu is fabulous – scrambled egg with truffles and aged parmesan; poached eggs, avocado, pomegranate and portobello mushroom and sesame seeds; or keep it simple with a classic pain au chocolat.
TIP: Pick up a pair of hip sunglasses from the onsite store as you leave!
COMMON MAN COFFEE ROASTERS
22 Martin Road 01-00, River Valley
The coffee is anything but common here, with a range of espressos, single origins and
micro-lots prepared at the dedicated brew bar or pumped out by an impressive custom
espresso machine. Choose from an excellent, if slightly offbeat, all-day breakfast menu
which includes phyllo-wrapped organic egg, crispy feta, fresh cucumber, tomatoes, olives
and hummus with pita bread; or sautéed kale and egg white scramble, with asparagus,
sweet pea and broccoli, topped with shaved parmesan and lemon zest crumbs.
Mandarin Gallery, Scotts Square
Breakfast is the Queen Bee here and this breezy café doesn’t mess around with their all day brunch offerings. Travel around the world with globally-inspired dishes including the full English fry up, Swiss bircher muesli, Canadian stack of pancakes with candied back bacon, hibiscus-berry compote and Canadian maple syrup or Turkish style poached eggs with baked yoghurt, baby spinach, flat bread and chopped salad.
421 East Coast Road
This cosy café-meets-foodstore offers a fantastic all-day breakfast menu and tasty coffee. The egg and bacon and sausage rolls are spot on, or go for the hearty Captains Breakfast of multigrain toast, cheese, avocado and ham, with spinach, two poached eggs, chopped tomato, parsley and smoked paprika. Finish with a fluffy scone, clotted cream and jam, and grab your weekly sausages and steak to go.
