There are plenty of brunch places in Singapore and you won’t be able to try them all. Even we’ve not found the time to try the newer ones though we’ve heard plenty of good things. When we finally find some free time on our hands, we find ourselves visiting our old favourites so that we always know what to expect, and we don’t have to put up with unpleasant surprises. This works for us especially when we’re taking guests out around town – we’re not the type of hosts to subject our guests to experimental visits to places we’ve not been to before. We’re boring like that! We hope you’ll enjoy these places as much we do, and that you’ll never get bored of them.
1. P.S Cafe
P.S Cafe has been our all-time favourite place for brunch and afternoon tea. A wide selection of cakes and desserts, and daily specials keeps us going back for more. They have been expanding steadily over the years, and our favourite locations are at Martin Road, Dempsey, and Paragon. Martin Road has a local menu, as well as a pizza menu while maintaining the favourites from the other P.S Cafes such as the P.S burger, and truffle fries. Be sure to pop by these cafes if you happen to be in the area

3. The Populus Coffee & Food Co
What can we say about Populus. For starters, it sure is popular. (Warned you that we’re not very good at writing). They do a very interesting spring onion pancake with fried chicken, and their wagyu quinoa grain bowl is excellent. I honestly didn’t think that a quinoa bowl could taste as good as the one served at Populus. Try their pancakes, lamb baked eggs, and butter rum french toast. Be sure to make a reservation to avoid a long wait!

4. The Coffee Academics
Originally from Hong Kong (or at least that’s the first of how i know of them), Coffee Academics recently opened their Singapore outlet at the Scotts Square. Eggs breakfast, pancake stacks, and churros are items you’ll find on the menu. We’ve heard that they shine more for their coffee than their food so you might want to head upstairs to Wild Honey for grub, and coffee academics for their reputed top-quality beans and high-tech equipment.
Address: Scotts Square, #02-01/02, Scotts Square,, 6 Scotts Road, Scotts Square, 228209
Hours: 9am to 9pm Daily

5. Atlas Coffeehouse
Atlas Coffeehouse initially began as the Assembly Cafe off Evans Road. They’ve closed their own outlet and opened a larger coffee joint with a more extensive menu, and they still serve great coffee and salted caramel waffles. Be sure to ask for your waffles to be fresh, as we’ve come across a few that were probably made in batches because the demand for them spikes up very quickly. Also try their nutella cupcakes and lemon pies. Situated in the Bukit Timah enclave, it is walking distance from the Singapore Botanic Gardens Cluny Court Gate.
