Its European-inspired main dining area comes with soft lighting, tiled floors, and vintage mirrors. Head here from 10:30 a.m. onwards, seven days a week, to dig into brunch-exclusive items such as the Wake and Bake—a hearty mix of baked eggs, tomato, bell pepper, onion, paprika, and toast on the side, as well as refreshing salads like roasted beet and classic Caesar. For a sweet finish, have a slice of Lavo’s famous 20-layer chocolate cake that’s both decadent and delicious.

Tucked away on the second floor of Cluny Court, a cluster of restored shophouses dating to 1928, the café boasts a gallery-like atmosphere with various forms of artworks lining its walls (some are even for sale). It’s also located next door to the Botanic Gardens, making it a great spot for brunch after a jog. Go for the platter of Pacific oysters, either served fresh with rice vinegar and shallots or baked then curried, Mornay-style. The salted-egg carbonara comes highly recommended, with its East-meets-West plating of bacon, lap cheong (Chinese sausage), spaghetti, sous-vide egg, salted-egg sauce, and parmesan.

It’s kitschy, it’s casual, and it’s housed in a huge safari tent on Dempsey Hill. Tiong Bahru Bakery’s fifth and latest permanent cafe concept may look like a campsite, but you won’t be roughing it out here. Inside, there are comfortable couches, Arabic carpets, gorgeous lamps, and other homely knick-knacks. Start off your day with a robust cup of turmeric ginger latte, best paired with the bakery’s famous flaky croissant. For something more substantial, try the pulled pork molasses bun.
