  • Butter My Buns
    1 / 5 Butter My Buns

    Tucked away in the campus of the National University of Singapore, we’re sure that Butter My Buns is a place of solace for many stressed-out students, but few know that non-students are free to visit this café too. We love the sweet treats here, from honey truffle Belgian waffles topped with soft serve ice cream to French crepes and more.

  • W39 Bistro & Bakery
    2 / 5 W39 Bistro & Bakery

    With its colourful vintage aesthetic, stepping into this charming neighbourhood gem is like entering the familiar cottage of your childhood. The menu of W39 Bistro & Bakery reads well, from a healthy Quinoa Salad to a more indulgent Pork Loin Cordon Bleu, but most people are here for their homemade cakes. We like the Red Velvet as well as the Rainbow cake.

  • Paddy Hills
    3 / 5 Paddy Hills

    Let’s just say we’ve willingly travelled to the far end of Singapore to Paddy Hills multiple times and not once has the food disappointed. Our faves for brunch: the legendary Berry Muffcake, and the Pan-Fried Seabass on a bed of rosti blanketed by a sunny-side-up. Even the dinner fare is beyond mindblowing. We recommend the Squid Ink Rice with mentaiko sauce, sous vide egg and flank steak.

  • Dean & Deluca
    4 / 5 Dean & Deluca

    Hailing from New York City, Dean & Deluca makes for the perfect weekend brunch. Think American breakfasts, pastries and more. While you’re there, get yourself some of their home brand sweet treats. Our favourite is the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Cashews.

  • Jimmy Monkey
    5 / 5 Jimmy Monkey

    Set by up a true blood native Melbournian, Jimmy Monkey promises the “ultimate coffee experience”, with amazing coffees made with beans roasted on-site from some of the best Independent and Rainforest Alliance farms. Food-wise, expect humble fare like toasted foccacia sandwiches to rustic pastas and frittatas.
