We tracked down the best breakfast and brunch places in Singapore for scrambled, poached and truffled eggs, as well as eggs Benedict
With the eggs-traordinary amount of places popping up for breakfast in Singapore, we cracked our brains and hatched a list of egg-cellent brunch places. Eggs Benedict, or simply eggs scrambled, poached, truffled, even Shakshouka-ed, we’ve got top picks for the best eggs in Singapore.
Hipster spot Drury Lane is a perennial favourite among brunch-goers. We love the fact that items like the big breakfast and the Marmite Cheese Soldiers with soft boiled eggs are so affordable!
Eggs ala… Eggs Benedict. The Salted Egg Yolk Eggs Benedict is loaded with flavour from the richness of the salted egg yolk to juicy prawns. This combo is a must-have.
Drury Lane, 94 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088515. p. 6222 6698. Open Mon-Tues 8am-6pm, Wed-Fri 8am-9pm, Sat-Sun 9pm-6pm.
Rider’s Café has to be one of the most picturesque places to have brunch. Just outside the veranda you have a lovely view of the stables. If you’re feeling indulgent, ask for one of their milkshakes (our fave is Chocolate. and Banana.)
Eggs ala… Scrambled. We love the scrambled eggs here; warm, fluffy, and moist. Hot tip: ask for added cheese to the scrambled eggs.
Rider’s Café, 51 Fairways Drive, Singapore 286965, p. 6466 9819. Open Sun-Thu 8am-9pm, Fri & Sat 8am-10pm. Closed on Mon.
Their full breakfast menu is only available on the weekends, with a limited menu on the weekdays during lunchtime. But if you can’t get breakfast at Epicurious, go for their award-winning Epicurious Burger with the works. A beef patty, topped with cheddar, bacon, mushroom, and egg, it’s practically breakfast stuffed into a burger. We like.
Eggs ala… Green. Sam-I-Am and Dr. Seuss would be proud. One of their signature breakfast dishes is the title Dr. Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham. But if you can’t stomach green eggs, go for the safer Baked Eggs with Toast Soldiers, which is just as delicious.
Epicurious, #01-13, UE Square Shopping Mall, 81 Clemenceau Avenue, Singapore , p. 6734 7720. Open Mon, Wed-Sun 8.30am-5pm. Closed Tues.
Club Street Social
Is it worth jumping onto the brunch bandwagon for Club Street Social? We answer with a resounding yes. It’s a little slice of Manhattan with quality coffee, fantastic brunch dishes, and great drinks at night. All-day breakfast is great there and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to variations of Panini.
Eggs ala… Scrambled, hands down. This is one of the best scrambled eggs in Singapore, if not the best. Their simple dish of Scrambled Eggs comes with a heaping pile of eggs, sprinkled with chives, and a few slices of buttered toast.
Club Street Social, 5 Gemmill lane, p. 6225 5043. Open Mon-Fri 10am-12am. Sat 11am-12am, Sun 11am-4pm.
Symmetry has nailed the art of brunch. They’ve been doing so well they’ve revamped their menu and included some new dishes, including Poached Eggs with silky mashed potatoes, chorizo, and caramelized onions.
Eggs ala… Have your eggs benedict with either bacon or smoked salmon with toasted English muffins, portobello mushrooms and melted cheese – a crowd fave.
Symmetry, 9 Jalan Kubor, #01-01 Singapore 199206, p. 6291 9901. Open Mon 10.30am-9pm, Tue-Thu 10.30am-11pm, Fri 10.30am-12am, Sat 9am-12am, Sun 9am-7pm.
Lolla may serve up small portions, but these dishes are thoughtful and surprisingly filling. Sea Urchin Pudding is what draws in the crowds, but stay for their Grass-Fed Ribeye Steak. Heavenly!
Eggs ala… Scrambled. Their Scrambled Eggs with Bottarga di Muggine is a must-have on the menu. Think creamy eggs paired with flecks of cured roe of grey mullets. Trust us – you’ll be back for more.
Lolla, 22 Ang Siang Road, Singapore 069702, p. 6423 1228. Open daily, lunch 12pm-2pm, dinner 6pm-11pm, brunch on Sun 10.30am-3pm.
Kith Café, originally at Robertson Quay and Park Mall, has since expanded within the CBD area with several new outlets. On top of affordable brunches, Kith Café has great coffee and desserts. We recommend the Banana bread.
Eggs ala… Scrambled. If creamy scrambled eggs that come with the Big Breakfast sounds like a deal maker to you, you’ll love Kith.
OK, brunch can sometimes feel a little chichi, but Arbite dials down the unpretentiousness with their well-executed, straight-to-the-point fare. For dessert a must try is their Gula Melaka Tiramisu, a local twist on the rum-soaked dessert.
Eggs ala… Poached. Get the Smoked Salmon Pancakes which is a stack of fluffy pancakes with basil cream cheese, watermelon, almond flakes and toasted sesame, topped with a poached egg.
Arbite, 66A Serangoon Garden Way, Singapore 555962, p. 9456 3807. Open Mon-Fri 11:30am-3pm, 6pm-1030pm, Sat 9am-1030pm, Sun 9am-10pm.
Perfect places for a lazy Sunday brunch are few and far between, but we think Artichoke fits the bill perfectly. Get its signature Artichoke Fried Chicken, glazed in honey-lemon, and comes with paprika fries, tahini coleslaw, Lebanese pickles and toum garlic whip.
Eggs ala… Shakshouka. Shak-what? Lamb Shakshouka comes in a skillet with two eggs baked in spicy tomato sauce, slow cooked lamb shoulder, green chili harissa, kewpie yoghurt and pita. Definitely a heavy brunch, so come with an empty stomach!
Artichoke, 161 Middle Road, Sculpture Square, Singapore 188978. p. 6336 6949. Open Tue-Sat, dinner 6.30pm-10.30pm. Sat-Sun 11.30am-3.30pm. Closed Mon.
The Provision Shop
Instead of the dried goods and biscuits you’d expect at a Singapore provision shop, here you’ll find brunch classics like the big breakfast and even Singapore’s Classic, homemade kaya, black coffee, soft-boiled egg and, instead of regular toast, ciabatta slices.
Eggs ala… Benedict. Nothing can go wrong with a delicious classic: Eggs Benedict on ciabatta/tomato with topping choices like bacon, parma ham, luncheon meat or corned beef.
The Provision Shop, #01-79 Bukit Merah 3 Everton Park, Singapore 080003/ p. 6225 9931. Open Wed-Sun 9am-6pm. Closed Mon-Tue.
The Missing Pan
One of Bukit Timah’s hottest spots for brunch, The Missing Pan uses ingredients that are fresh and organic, with no added preservatives or flavourings, whatsoever. Find a range of vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free specialty sourdoughs on its menu.
Eggs ala… Eggs Benedict. It’s simply cooked to perfection and served with smoked salmon and avocado. Yum!
The Missing Pan, 619D Bukit Timah Road, #01/02-01, Singapore 269724, p. 6466 4377. Open Tue-Sat: 8.30am-10pm; Sun 8.30am-7pm.
Crowds constantly flock to this suburban spot for the honey paprika crispy wings, but we love their brunch creations just as much. Try the basil pesto mushroom toast – a warm butter brioche with sauteed swiss mushrooms, poached eggs, and fresh pesto spread – or the ultimate croissant with honey mayo, scrambled eggs, ham, and streaky bacon.
Eggs ala… Scrambled. Scrambled eggs are usually boring solo, but paired with ham, bacon and a croissant with honey mayo, it becomes a match-made in heaven.
Lola’s Cafe, 5 Simon Road, Singapore 545893. p. 6284 0349. Open Tues-Thurs 10am-11.30pm, Fri-Sat 10am-12am, Sun 10am-11.30pm.
