6 awesome places to have Sunday brunch singapore TIMBRE

We're always thankful for the rare places that we can hang out at in peace over the weekends, and Timbre @ Gillman Barracks wins points just for the lack of annoying camera-toting, food-blogger-wannabe crowds. Instead, you get a just a few families chilling out at the restaurant's leafy, semi-alfresco dining area over its signature crowd-pleasing fare. Only available on Sundays (noon to 9pm), a burgers menu featuring eight hefty burgers can be paired with a range of craft beers for a truly gluttonous indulgent brunch. Go for beef burgers The Beefcake and Juicy Lucy if you prefer the classics, or opt for the "Chinese Cheese" burger with deep fried fermented beancurd if you're feeling adventurous.

Go to: Mad About Sucre at 27 Teo Hong Road, Tel: 6221 3969, 

6 awesome places to have Sunday brunch singapore MAD ABOUT SUCRE

Mad About Sucre's beautifully crafted desserts are easily amongst some of the most impressive we've ever had in Singapore, so it's no surprise that the patisserie has decided to venture into employing their skills into the savouries to entice not just those with a sweet tooth. And like its sweet treats, Mad About Sucre's savoury menu is classically French in nature: think smoked salmon with potatoes and crushed tomatoes; pan-seared foie gras with fruit compote, and a three-cheese tarte topped off with cold smoked salmon loin and caviar.

If you prefer things traditional ...

Go to: Mitzo at Grand Park Orchard Hotel, 270 Orchard Road, Tel: 6603 8855, 

6 awesome places to have Sunday brunch singapore MITZO

For weekends where those hunger pangs can only be satiated by a proper dim sum feast, head to Mitzo, Grand Park Orchard's uber cool Cantonese restaurant, who has now put a contemporary spin to the traditional yum cha. Besides the usual dim sum suspects of steamed prawn dumplings, custard buns and crispy beancurd rolls, Mitzo also brings out the big guns in the form of its excellent barbecued pork as well as the crispy pork belly bun. In total, guests get to order unlimited servings of more than 40 dishes, served over six courses of Roasts, Dim Sum, Appetiser or Soup, Main Course, Rice, Noodles or Congee, and Desserts. Top up another $50 per person, and you get a free flow of selected cocktails, wines and beers. Now, that's what we call a feast. 

The Mitzo weekend brunch is available every weekend and public holidays, from 1130am to 230pm at $68 per person (food only).  

If you like fried chicken and waffles (who doesn't?!) ...

Go to: Clinton Street Baking Co & Restaurant at 31 Purvis Street, Tel: 6684 4845

6 awesome places to have Sunday brunch singapore CLINTON ST

Like any good F&B establishment well aware of its popularity outside of home town and savvy enough to capitalise on it, New York City brunch institution Clinton St Baking Company has now opened its first South East Asian outpost along Purvis Street, bringing with it its signature blueberry pancakes, buttermilk fried chicken and Belgian vanilla buttermilk waffle, and buttermilk biscuit sandwich with scrambled eggs, melted cheddar, tomato jam and bacon. In a city full of cafe clones serving subpar brunch food that has more style than substance, Clinton St Baking Co & Restaurant, and its owners' insistence on sticking to the classics and doing well, is a much-welcomed addition to the brunch scene. We're now crossing our fingers for a Singapore outpost of Shake Shack next...

If you like brunch shots Instagram-worthy ...

Go to: Luxe Singapore at #01-04 The Working Capitol 1 Keong Saik Road, Tel: 6221 5615, 

6 awesome places to have Sunday brunch singapore LUXE

If there's one thing the Aussies excel in, it's serving brunch that looks magazine-cover-worthy. There's nothing particularly ground-breaking about Sydney-based Luxe's brunch offerings (there are crowd favourites like eggs benedict with poached eggs and leg ham, and an all-day breakfast) but a textbook hipster-chic set-up perfect for those envy-inducing Instagram shots means the local crowds will come in droves regardless. As is standard with Aussie cuisine, there are hints of Asian influence, such as the use of coconut yoghurt and seasonal fruits with the quinoa and chia seed pudding.

Go to: Colony at Level 3, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore, Tel: 6434 5288

6 awesome places to have Sunday brunch singapore COLONY

Greenhouse, the grand dame of all luxe brunch offerings in Singapore, now has a new name and a spiffy new look that harkens back to the years of colonial rule by the British in the region. But other than the facelift, which sees the once open-concept area redesigned for a much more private and luxurious-looking format, food offerings are still very much the indulgent spreads that Greenhouse fans have been accustomed to. There are now eight "live" kitchens, showcasing Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Western and local dishes, plus the eternally popular seafood station – which serves King crab legs, half shell scallops, black mussels and poached ‘live’ prawns – a bakery, a fruit stall and a patisserie. 

The Vintage Champagne Brunch is available every Sunday from noon to 330pm, from $188 per adult, inclusive of unlimited Louis Roederer Brut Vintage 2008 and Brut Rosé 2009, selected cocktails/mocktails, house pour red/white wines, draft beer and soft drinks.
