No stranger to Easties, this popular joint located on the second floor of Tampines West CC is heralded for consistent, quality brunch offerings. Visit on the weekends for the tried and tested Butcher's Daughter ($16) – excellent medium rare seared sous vide beef alongside creamy scrambled eggs. For something light, the Dashi Noodles ($8.90) in a bonito broth with pulled chicken and onsen egg should do the trick. Get the aromatic Muddy Espresso ($5.50) with cold milk to finish.

Run by a passionate baker and mother of two, this cheery Arab Street favourite sees an innovative menu and delicious, all-natural bakes. Order up the Shakshouka ($18.90), flaunting beautifully poached eggs and a dollop of crème fraîche in a sweet, sour and slightly spicy blend of bell peppers, tomatoes and spices. Adventurous eaters, the Chee Cheong Fun ($9.90) — a fusion take that sees cider vinegar and kale — is worth a try. Grab a fragrant and biscuity Gula Melaka Scone ($3.50) scone or two after your meal as well.

Jot this cosy Horne Road nook down for brunch or a java or two on work-from-anywhere days. Complete with cosy lighting and chill vibes, you're bound to feel at home here. The generously portioned and wholesome Bagel Salmon Set ($14.50) and the warm and fluffy Pancakes Stack ($15.50) are worthy runs for your buck. Give the fragrant and slightly savoury Lavender Latte ($5.50) a whirl – you won't regret it.

This rustic joint along Dunlop Street whips up delicious mains worth every penny and desserts worth saving space for. Must-trys include the Smoked Duck Chili Padi ($28), sporting thick slices of tender smoked duck sitting atop a creamy yet zingy linguine with a slight kick from chilli api sauce. On sweets, it's almost deviant to leave without trying the highly raved, not-too-sweet Classic Ondeh-Ondeh Cake ($8), featuring fluffy sponge layers and crunchy gula melaka bits.

The fork-tender Lamb Shank ($16.90) is a hit here as well. If you're planning to visit on weekends, come early to avoid crowds.
