Taste the world at these 6 new breakfast and brunch spots in Singapore

The dining scene in Singapore has been slowly but surely revving up again following the end of the circuit breaker period. While plenty of dining spots have opened up offering everything from pizzas and European cuisine to steak, sushi and gelato, we’re sharing a list of breakfast and brunch haunts in particular to celebrate the most important – but sometimes overlooked – meal of the day. Fuel up at these new cafés and restaurants that will give early risers a good head start.

Butter Bean breakfast and brunch singapore
The thick toasts available at Butter Bean

1. Butter Bean

A new concept introduced by the BreadTalk Group, Butter Bean is a modern café that is giving the traditional kopitiam breakfast of toast and eggs a run for its money. The menu is a list of reimagined local favourites, such as thick toasts with various toppings – there’s the PB&J with house-made peanut butter and jam and Say Cheese with buttercream and shredded cheddar – that you can get a set with eggs and a drink. The coffee here has also been given a boost, with the use of a custom blend of Arabica and Robusta beans that have been coated with a layer of caramelised sugar before roasting. Try the signature Brûlée Kopi Latte made with fresh milk, Nanyang coffee and salted-cream foam that’s sprinkled with sugar and subsequently torched. The first outlet opened at Funan Mall in August 2020, with another slated to debut at VivoCity on the 10th this month.


An Australian-style café by day and a modern Asian restaurant by night, the dishes churned out by this new dual-concept eatery are a breath of fresh air. Many of the ingredients are made in-house – from butter and bread to condiments such as mayonnaise, jams and finishing sauces. Try the deep-fried G&G, a sandwich with black truffle cheese sauce, gammon ham and an optional sunny side-up egg, or the fascinating Choccoquin that’s inspired by a Filipino chocolate-flavoured rice porridge called champorado. The rendition here comprises tricolour quinoa cooked in fragrant coconut milk and cocoa powder, topped with diced seasonal fruits and candied cocoa nibs. Meanwhile, the seasonal tartine is a crusty sourdough slice topped with house-made ricotta, crisp caramelised apple cubes and drizzled with Filipino wildflower honey and flash-fried sage leaves.

3. Fluff Stack

This Japanese soufflé pancake café first opened in Suntec City in mid-2019 and has since appeared in many Instagram Boomerang videos, thanks to its photogenic stack of light, fluffy and jiggly pancakes topped with visually appealing ingredients such as fruits, ice cream and nuts. Fluff Stack opened a second outlet in the heartlands – Yishun’s Northpoint City, to be exact – just last month, much to the excitement of northerners. If you prefer your pancakes simple with no-frills for breakfast, try the classic soufflé pancakes that come with honey butter and Canadian maple syrup. For something more eye-catching, go for the Oolong Boba Soufflé Pancakes, which are topped with oolong anglaise and gula melaka tapioca pearls.

4. Café Kreams

Walking into this autumn-themed café will make you feel like you’re stepping right into a whimsical wonderland, or perhaps even a Korean drama set. Foliage of red, yellow, orange and green decorate the ceiling of this charming enclave at Maxwell Chambers, creating a romantic canopy under which you can enjoy aromatic brews. For your morning cuppa, try the Dalgona Latte topped with homemade Korean honeycomb malt candy or opt for the intriguing Dry Cappuccino that comes with extra dense, thick foam and is topped with Valrhona cocoa powder. Accompany your tasty drinks with a selection of freshly baked scones and cakes. The scones come in interesting flavours such as matcha, chocolate and yuzu and are served with a dusting of powdered sugar and a side of whipped cream.

5. Kizuna

This new café in Potong Pasir occupies the space formerly occupied by the Shangri-La Confectionary and Delicatessen, a beloved old-school bakery that operated for roughly 30 years before it closed. Thankfully, Kizuna is no stranger to the neighbourhood – it’s run by the third generation of the family behind Shangri-La Confectionary. While the circuit breaker delayed its opening date, it’s now up and running, serving comfort bakes such as croissant sandwiches and banana breads alongside artisanal coffee from Paradise Coffee Roasters. The welcoming, rustic interior of worn tiles, cement walls and wooden tables made from salvaged offcuts makes this a great spot for a relaxing morning read.

6. Burger+

This trendy Korean burger joint first opened in Wisma Atria around mid-2019, but its second outlet at Clarke Quay Central (opened in December of the same year) is particularly worth a visit. Neon lights and youthful vibe aside, this outlet is three times bigger than the first, with a seating capacity of 200 and extended hours. They’ve also started serving breakfast toasts that feature fluffy scrambled eggs nestled between warm brioche buns, which are freshly made upon order and can be ordered between 8am to 5pm every day. The signature egg toast, which comes with cheese and a choice of either ham or bacon, is a hearty choice (vegetarians can get it with avocado instead) that you can wash down with a cup of black coffee.
