Their all-day restaurant by the beach will have you spoilt for choice with a refreshed menu of coastal-inspired dishes.

Working Title: Burgers for brunch
Our two favourite B-words come together in Working Title’s brand new brunch menu. The Arab Street café’s got a brand new burger for brunch, and it comes packed with a grilled beef patty topped with turkey bacon, truffle scrambled eggs, crushed tater tots, caramelised onions, mild cheddar and a smoky barbecue sauce – talk about a brunch of champs! But if you prefer more traditional brunch offerings, opt for the Working Big Breakfast or the smoked salmon with asparagus and scrambled eggs.

Lolla, 22 Ann Siang Road, Singapore 069702, p. 6423 1228
boCHINche: An Argentine brunch
While this Amoy Street establishment already trumps with its grilled steaks – alongside tantalising small plates like sea bass ceviche, Hokkaido scallops tiradito and caramelised pork belly – we’d gladly scrape ourselves outta bed over the weekend to munch on its brunch bites. Exotic eats here include the Faina and fried eggs with crushed avocado, coriander and aji molido cream fraiche; brioche French toast with home-cooked ham and bacon ice cream; and boCHINche’s Dulce de leche – a thick, caramel-like syrup that is trickled over fluffy pancakes, and topped with caramelised banana, chopped basil and baked ricotta cheese.

You can always trust the Aussies when it comes to coffee and brunch. Our go-to cafe for a cuppa, Jones the Grocer is one of our all-time faves for brunch. Our vote’s on the egg royale and hotcakes, but the classic eggs Benedict hardly disappoints either. Get your weekly grocery shopping done while you’re there too!

They even offer the oh-so-healthy (yet yummy) acai bowl!
Super Loco, #01-13 The Quayside, 60 Robertson Quay, Singapore 238252, p. 6235 8900.
Angelina: Brunch from the famous French patisserie
Get your chic on at this cute French tearoom that oozes Parisian charm. Brunch is a $42, three-course affair and starts with hot drinks, fresh juices, and an array of authentic pastries, including croissants and pain au chocolat, followed by darphin potatoes, eggs done however you like ’em, and bacon or smoked salmon. Rounding off this brunch ménage à trois is a choice between pineapple and mango tartare with lime, or brioche French toast with wild berries. J’adore! And if that doesn’t catch your fancy, there’s also an array of delish sounding a-la-carte and snack options, including Francophile faves such as Croque Monsieur and quiche Lorraine. Not to mention, Angelina’s pastries that’ve stirred quite a buss!

Artichoke: Brunch from the dude-Sin master
Trust Bjorn Shen – the wackiest chef we know – to whip up Middle Eastern-influenced dishes your taste buds won’t let you forget. The menu’s ever-changing, but to give you an idea of what to expect, items like a crazily-stacked smoked salmon pancake with Jim Beam-infused sour cream, and a sujuk sausage menemen (Turkish wet omelette) have graced the menu.

Modelled after famous Melbourne joint, Pope Joan, The Lokal offers plenty of Aussie-inspired creations.

Handmade ricotta, poached eggs, toasted pumpernickel, dry-cured bacon… you’re going to have to make some big decisions. Also, fab coffee from sister outlet Sarnies is available here.
The Lokal, 136 Neil Road, Singapore 088865, p. 6423 9918.
Ronin: The hidden brunch
This hidden gem has no signage whatsoever, so if you aren’t actively looking for the café, chances are, you’ll walk right past the space on Hong Kong Street.
