Sunday brunch is often a family affair so why not make it a point this year to spend more time feasting and having fun with the kids in tow. Here is our list of 10 family-friendly brunch places to check out in Singapore.
- Ash and Elm
Sunday brunch at Intercontinental Singapore’s Ash & Elm is a family affair with a lovely selection of food such as a walk-in charcuterie and cheese room, fresh seafood corner and an egg station. Parents will appreciate the ability to order unlimited servings of hot food a la carte, and served tapas style as well as the DIY Bloody Mary station. There is also plenty of fresh, good food that the little ones will enjoy but perhaps not quite as much as they would the on-site play room that comes complete with a soft play area, cartoons on the screens and activities for children.

For dessert, the little ones will enjoy the wide range of homemade gelato and sorbet in a wide variety of flavours. What we love most about the place is the Kids’ Playland that comes complete with a minder to help supervise the kids while parents enjoy a worry-free meal. Activities include a bouncy castle, games, cartoons, activities as well as delicious sandwiches and pastries.

9. Tiong Bahru Bakery
It doesn’t get any more convenient than this when it comes to getting to your brunch venue via public transport, no matter which part of the island that you stay in, thanks to the central location of City Hall MRT Station. The recently renovated eatery is now more child-friendly, as the mall has removed the fountain, which was potentially hazardous, that used to be there and with the addition of hot food items (11 at last count) that are healthy, appealing to kids and delicious to boot. Our pick is The Breakfast Pancake Burger which combines the best of two dishes every child likes and it comes with an organic NZ egg and homemade sausage patty. There are also vegetarian options on menu and the usual array of pastries, coffee and juices ensure that even the pickiest breakfast eaters will find something to munch on here.
Hot food items are available from 11am onwards. For more information, visit tiongbahrubakery.com

For the little ones, there are options aplenty but look out for the array of congee options (e.g. chicken, grouper, century egg and pork) as well as bowls of nutritious soups like the double boiled Sakura chicken with cordyceps flower on offer.
