Where to have brunch in Singapore: Newly Opened Cafés And Old Favourites

There’s no denying that Singaporeans’ favourite past time is to eat, whether we’re overseas or in town. With the borders still closed, foodies may be bummed out that we can’t head out to other countries to discover new food and take those IG-worthy shots.

But what we do still have though, are the cafes and bakeries located right in our own backyard. Sometimes, the best places to travel to is right in front of us. Here’s a list of newly opened and popular places to enjoy your brunch in Singapore.

In the day, you can look forward to café menu items such as honey toast with soft serve, spicy chicken wings with yuzu mayo sauce, furikake fries, and their best-seller— the Katsu Sando, a syokupan sandwich with slowcooked Spanish pork collar cutlet. There’s no denying that this is a good place to have your brunch in Singapore!

Fans of their signature Japanese cream buns can also choose from five different flavours: Whipped Cream, Custard, Matcha, Azuki, and Chocolate. At night, this warmly lit place magically transforms into an izakaya, serving fresh sashimi and an exquisite selection of sake.
