10 Best Restaurants in Singapore to enjoy a good breakfast or brunch

The Singaporean population favour local ethnic dishes for their morning meal, but the large expat community and constant influx of hungry tourists mean that there are several great breakfast spots to be found if you fancy tucking into bacon and eggs, chewy croissants or breakfast pancakes. All the top-end hotels offer large breakfast spreads in their in-house restaurants, but here are the best options out and about in the city.


Wild Honey with its two branches in the Orchard Road area offers breakfast choices for all nationalities. The Wild Honey menu takes its inspiration from breakfasts around the world, with 20 different international breakfasts served all day every day. Also on Orchard Road, PS Café at Palais Renaissance offers a relaxed and stylish setting with its French café-inspired wicker furniture, spectacular floral displays and excellent weekend breakfasts.


For something more casual, Australian bar & bistro Boomarang on Robertson Quay is a great option for a child-friendly atmosphere and good Aussie fry-up or bacon & egg roll, while nearby Toby’s Estate serves up some of Singapore’s best coffee, with a choice of indoor or outdoor seating.


For those looking to escape the city for a relaxing brunch, Prive allows you to admire the yachts in the marina over some of the best pancakes in town, while PS Café at Dempsey is surrounded by rainforest, yet just a short hop from Orchard Road.
