This place doesn't need a recommendation, what with its history, and enthusiastic word of mouth doing it for them. There's no better place to head down in your shorts and slippers with a few good friends you're too busy to catch up with during the week, and have a comforting breakfast of kaya toast (extra butter pls) and kopi siu dai. Grab as many buns as you can and share! Sometimes nothing beats tradition.

Opened by the good people of The Plain, it's nice to sit in this space right opposite the Jalan Besar Stadium with a perfect flat white, a constant reminder that you are in fact, still in Singapore, despite the exceedingly Australian ambience. With bare-bones tables and chairs, this place gives off an earthy-cool vibe with an energy that makes you wanna go back and make great things happen. The coffee and service is fantastic, nothing short of what you would get at The Plain. Look out for the gold door!

"Deviant Middle-Eastern" is how Artichoke describes their food, which we have to say, is an extremely accurate way of putting it. There's nothing not to love here- bold, hearty, unique flavors that surprise and comfort you at the same time. Set in the beautiful Sculpture Square, it's hard to find a better place to treat your belly on a weekend. Don't be afraid of the "Middle Eastern" label, you're gonna love every darned crumb of food. Be sure to make reservations for brunch, it's always packed.

You'll almost always get a perfect cup of coffee here. Order a roast beef or turkey ham ciabatta to go with it. Sit outside if the sun is kind!

Good British food is hard to come by in Singapore, and The Ascot has happily answered that. With quintessential British gastropub fare, you're in for a really fun meal here. Grab a shuttle bus from Botanic Gardens or Newton station to The Grandstand with a few good friends for some cider, scotch eggs, cold cuts, bangers n mash, bread pudding and fried Mars bars. Sounds good right, why not just stay all day?

Great for coffee and cake, or brunch if you're up early enough. Try going to Maison at night if you usually go in the day, it's cosy and perfect for catching up with old friends over a cup of cold drip coffee.

This east-sider favourite probably has the best ambience for a relaxed weekend, great for a girls day out or a casual date.

Stranger's Reunion is always a trusty pal for kickass coffee and waffles. Go for the Magic for a perfect cuppa, and relax with a book.

There's something about sitting outside on the pavement of Telok Ayer St with a good Caesar salad and a coffee, having a long, slow breakfast/brunch/lunch at whatever time you wake up on a Saturday or Sunday. Sarnies is perfectly laid back, and is just what you need after a long week at work or school. Don't forget to finish your meal off with their killer brownie!

At Wild Honey, you're spoilt for choice, and their all-day breakfast is bound to put you in the perfect mood for the weekend. The menu is so tempting, each dish promising satisfaction. Go for the Norwegian, an unctuous combination of poached eggs wrapped in smoked salmon topped with hollandaise and salmon roe, sitting on a bed of asparagus. Alternatively, take a trip to Tunisia for some killer baked eggs in a pan, and mop up all that goodness with perfectly toasted slices of brioche.
