Breakfasts in Singapore with great quality ingredients
Wild Honey breakfasts
For more than 13 years, Wild Honey has been creating and serving up some of the most innovative and beautiful breakfasts on the island – all day, every day!
Inspired by a love of travel and all things breakfast, each dish tells a story of far-flung lands and the tastes, colours and textures that bring them to life. Expat Living’s Gold Winner for Best Breakfasts again in 2023, Wild Honey features an extensive menu that puts global all-day breakfast at the forefront.
Be inspired by the ‘I Love New York’ brekkie featuring smoked fish, bagel and cream cheese; the signature spicy North African inspired Tunisian shakshouka; the tropical flavours of the gluten-free coconut pancakes with passion fruit syrup and mango; or the European Benedict with mushrooms and prosciutto. Other stand-outs include traditional Brazilian bread; the Moroccan with carrot and chickpea fritters, harrissa and poached eggs; the Jerusalem deconstructed shakshukit; and the Boulevard St Michel, a savoury french toast with parmesan crumbed eggs and spinach soufflé. Off-menu seasonal dishes are also offered regularly through the year.
No great brunch is complete without excellent coffee to sip, and Wild Honey’s bespoke Common Man Coffee Roasters blend (or the ice coffee cubes with milk) hits the spot perfectly. And, if you’re in the mood for a boozy brunch, Wild Honey also offers free-flow Prosecco and select wines, as well as a fabulous daily happy hour at Mandarin Gallery with beautiful cocktails. Plus, enjoy complimentary snacks during aperitivo hour on Friday afternoons. See you there!
Locations at Mandarin Gallery and Scotts Square
All-day breakfast at Little Farms
For the most important meal of the day, we’ve been loving Little Farms for classic brunch dishes done right. Try their Smashed Avocado on Toast, served with cage-free poached eggs, feta, tomatoes and dukkah on sourdough from Starter Lab. Vegan and keto options are available too, and all dishes are made with the same all-natural and wholesome ingredients available in the grocery section.
Other favourites include the lox bagel with house-cured beetroot salmon gravlax, crème fraiche, tomato, pickled onion and capers, and an array of daily-baked vegan pastries such as banana cake and blueberry and chocolate muffins.
You can even bring your furkids to their pet-friendly Valley Point, Serangoon Garden and Katong Point restaurants.
SPRMRKT Dempsey Hill
They offer mouth-watering all-day breakfast menus that fans of English breakfast-style fry-ups in particular should try. The SPRMRKT Breakfast Platter features two eggs cooked in any style, accompanied by bacon, tomato, sautéed mushrooms, pork sausages and warm toast. Other items to add to your must-try list are the savoury buttermilk pancakes served with maple syrup, tomatoes, streaky bacon, chorizo and a fried egg.
Want something out of the ordinary? Try the shakshuka made with hearty baked cannellini beans, sweet bell peppers, tomatoes and two poached eggs.
For a chic breakfast spot in expat hangout Tanglin Mall, La Veranda is the perfect place to eat and meet. With striking green and gold décor, floor-to-ceiling bay windows, sun-drenched tables and airy interiors, the all-day dining restaurant just behind furniture store House of AnLi Interiors is a fabulous way to start the day.
Using fresh ingredients imported from Europe, the menu focuses on modern French dishes reimagined, with all-day breakfasts such as lobster and chive omelette, and organic eggs benedict and eggs royale, as well as a selection of freshly baked French pastries and breads using recipes from Lenôtre Paris.
While away the morning over a pot of fragrant Mariage Frères French tea or sip on one of La Veranda’s signature slow-pressed fresh juices. Or why not make it an occasion with a Mimosa?
After breakfast, head over to House of AnLi’s retail store to browse a selection of stunning décor and shop looks from the restaurant’s interior.
