best brunches singapore

Fancy having a luxurious brunch in Singapore? These options are a treat for the tastebuds, with everything from free-flow champagne to delectable buffets. 

Lazy, indulgent weekends are made for brunch, a leisurely affair when your stomach’s rumbling for gourmet delicacies and culinary treats. Tables are laden with a decadent spread, and a never-ending flow of champagne toasts are made – an unbridled indulgence that we want to relish from time to time.

Granted, Singapore is teeming with swanky bars and omakase experiences, but this city has its fair share of upscale brunch establishments, too. No matter if it’s the highest grade of caviar or impeccable tableside service, these are the 12 most opulent brunches that you’ll find in Singapore.

1. Manhattan

Adult-only 1920s themed bar 

Brunch Spread at Manhattan Singapore

Leave the kids at home for this upscale adults-only brunch at renowned hotel bar Manhattan. It’s reminiscent of New York City in the 1920s, an era filled with glitz and plenty of glamour. With Manhattan having placed on Asia’s 50 Best Bars, most flock over to this establishment for the drinks. But at this brunch edition, what’s most enticing is the DIY cocktail bar; you’ll get to play bartender and craft a Bloody Mary or Bellini to your own liking – we’ll turn a blind eye to the copious amount of booze available.

Manhattan hosts themed Sunday brunches, such as the Aloha Hawaii that transports diners to a tropical paradise. Here, you can assemble your own poke bowl with fresh seasonal fish like yellowfin tuna and hamachi. You’ll also indulge in small plates inspired by Hawaiian cuisine, such as the Loco Moco, featuring a flavourful Wagyu patty served with scrambled eggs.

Menu: Signature Sunday Brunch (from $208)
Availability: Sunday (12pm to 3pm)

Contrary to how one may perceive an English establishment – and one by renowned Chef Marco Pierre White, at that – The English House has no airs. Instead, this charming restaurant along Mohamed Sultan Road pays homage to Singapore’s rich culinary heritage and serves up both British classics and Chinese dim sum. It’s a rare brunch spot where you’ll find both traditional beer battered fish and chips ($28) and Cantonese-style lobster noodles ($78). 

Order a Wagyu beef Wellington (from $168) to share between two, or a section of dim sum such as prawn dumplings with chilli crab sauce (from $8) or black pepper Wagyu beef balls (from $8). If you swing by on Sundays, there’s also a special Sunday roast menu that boasts elevated pub fare with the likes of shepherd’s pie ($28) and slow braised ox cheek ($38).

Menu: A la carte
Availability: Weekdays (11.30am to 2.30pm) and weekends (11am to 2.30pm)

As one of Singapore’s top Italian restaurants, Garibaldi has made a name for itself when it comes to standout food. This white tablecloth institution hosts a memorable weekend brunch, with a menu that changes with the seasons. You’re presented with a concise one-page menu, a seasonal showcase of delectable dishes like freshly shucked oysters, burrata from Puglia, and Hungarian duck breast.

Case in point: chocolate fettuccine, with fork-tender pork ragu. You can add on $30 for free-flow prosecco, beer, and house wines, or $89 for champagne.
