Singaporeans are one of the most hardworking folks on the planet. After a long laborious week, we find solace (& retain sanity) by catching up, with friends and family over Sunday brunch. To fuel this growing demand, cafes serving all day breakfast, all day brunch, everyday brunch, sunday brunch, breakfast buffet, weekday brunch and weekend breakfast sprung up like mushrooms all over our little island! We know that you are always on the lookout for top cafes that serves the best Sunday Brunch in Singapore, here’s a list of some of our favourite places.
Named after Marie-Antoinette, the last Queen of France who was so often revered for her extravagance and fine taste, Antoinette invites brunch seekers to share their joie de vivre in the cafe’s beautiful surroundings reminiscent of an elegant boudoir with an excess of meticulously crafted cakes, pastries and fine food.
Indulge in their popular All Day Breakfast selections, French Toasts and French Thick Pancakes for your well deserved Sunday Brunch. If you have space for sweet endings, check out their time-honoured French classic desserts.
2. Department Of Caffeine
Tucked in a corner along Duxton Road, locating this cafe can be quite a challenge. The cafe service area is just this narrow strip of real estate, no hidden corners. The semi-industrial woody interior decor gave the cafe a no nonsense, pragmatic character. Their D.O.C Breakfast Platter and Sundried Tomato & Herb Waffles are some of our favourite breakfast entrees. Have we mentioned that we love their generous breakfast servings?
With FLOR Patisserie just right round the corner, we suspect there is mutualistic relationship going on. Brunch seekers can have their main breakfast entrees at D.O.C and drop by FLOR for tea and some desserts.
3. FLOR Patisserie
The desserts and cakes served at Department Of Caffeine didn’t look that fantastic hence we casted our eyes at FLOR Pâtisserie. This Japanese-styled cake shop serving authentic Japanese inspired French pastry was just a short 5 minutes stroll away.
Their pretty pastries are an absolute delight to look at! What’s more amazing is that no baking powder, artificial rising or softening agents, stabilisers or preservatives are used in their pastries. The soft and moist quality of their cakes is achieved from the natural aeration of eggs being whipped to their full peak.
If you are looking at a light weekend breakfast with your favourite hot beverage, you can jolly well give D.O.C a miss.
4. The Fabulous Baker Boy
True to their name, The Fabulous Baker Boy Cafe at The Viridian Art House along The Foothills Of Fort Canning Park is home to some of the best cakes in Singapore – particularly their Ab Fab Red Velvet Cake!
Not known to many of the younger Singaporeans, the very spot where the cafe stands used to be the canteen of the former River Valley Swimming Complex. The cafe conserved the wall and floor mosaic tiles from its nostalgic 1970’s.
Come in a pack and go easy on the breakfast entrees to sample their divine pastries selection.
5. Symmetry Cafe
Café by day, restaurant bar by night, Symmetry is nestled in a serene spot within Jalan Kubor. Taking inspiration from both the Australian casual dining culture and French cuisine, Symmetry presents a unique dining experience with an emphasis on sharing.

Situated within the oldest and most historically significant garden of our busy city, Food For Thought makes an ideal weekend brunch venue for family and community bonding.

Plus you can take a nice stroll in Botanical Gardens to walk off your scrambled eggs, sausages and coffee.

8. Old School Delight
Those of us who have ermmm crossed the BIG 30 will find this charming old school cafe located at Upper Thomson Road a warm & fuzzy reminder of our childhood days at Nursery, Kindergarten & Primary School.
The cafe seeks to transport it’s diners back in time to the retro 80’s classrooms where teachers are still using chalkboards and school canteen aka tuckshop serves the traditional local delights.
A lovely place to spend the lazy weekend afternoon with close childhood friends to catch up over familiar food, drinks and games.
9. Necessary Provisions
Essentially a coffee joint, they do not have a wide selection of breakfast choices. There was only panini, toast and sandwiches, you can forget about egg benedict, egg florentine, pancakes and bacons etc. Surprisingly, they attracted quite a decent expatriate crowd.
Quality coffee is the secret behind their draw. Their Cold Latte served in the form of frozen coffee cubes with cold milk on the side is a must try.
