Never mind that the menu at Brawn & Brains isn’t the most extensive – the Oven-Baked Molten Eggs on tortilla and melted cheese ($9.80, pictured) is all you need. The rich flavours all come together decadently, only without the guilt because avocado and salmon provide healthy fats.

3 / 7 3. Drury LaneRead more
Drury Lane’s Eggs Benedict ($12) is served with turkey bacon as a healthier alternative. Add-ons, from beef sausage to mushrooms to avocado, cost no more than $2 for a portion, too. For those with a larger appetite, even the big breakfast platter will set you back by only $15.
4 / 7 4. To-gather CaféRead more
East-siders don’t have to travel far for a filling plate of pasta. None of the pasta dishes at To-gather Cafe are priced in the double digits, including the crowd favourite Seafood Spaghetti Aglio Olio ($9.90, pictured). With a soup of the day ($3.90) to start, it’ll still cost less than a simple eggs on toast in some cafes.
5 / 7 5. Flock CaféRead more
It’s a bold claim, but one we’re making with confidence: Flock Café serves one of the best French toasts we’ve tried on the island, served with caramelised bananas, crispy bacon and maple syrup. We’d be willing to pay more, but it’s only $13.90. More of a savoury bruncher? Go for Cheeky Eggs ($16.90), a rendition of everyone’s favourite Eggs Benny, but with braised pork cheek.
6 / 7 6. VXX CooperativeRead more
The menu here is labelled “everyday food”. True in some regards, the dishes at VXX Cooperative are uncomplicated and honest, like French Omelettes ($11) and Avocado on Sourdough ($10), but they’re done so well we’d consider brunch here a treat. Don’t go without a coffee – these folks are serious about their cuppas.
7 / 7 7. One Man CoffeeRead more
Some love One Man Coffee for the for coffee, others love it for their speciality Gashouse Eggs ($10) or filling Big Brekkie ($12, pictured). We say try both. You haven’t got much to lose, seeing that this café is one of the most affordable ones in central Singapore. Fun fact: It’s a café by day and pizzeria by night.
