There’s nothing like ending a weekend with a hearty brunch, but when you’re looking for something other than your average eggs and toast, we’ve got just the places to take your Singapore Sunday brunch to a whole other level. Here are 5 ‘not your average’ Sunday brunch spots in Singapore.
Caribbean Rum Brunch at Lime House
This two part Caribbean Brunch is the perfect ending to any weekend. It starts with brunch on the main floor where you choose between Homemade Coconut Bread or Caribbean Fried Bakes, have eggs cooked the way you want them and top it off with fiery jerk chicken, salt fish, smoked salmon or ham, plus a side veggie. If you dare, wash it down with the addition of bottomless Rum Punch for S$45. Instead of dreading that Monday morning meeting you’ll be dreaming of warm turquoise seas and reggae tunes.
The Sunday fun continues on the second floor with a free masterclass and tasting of a rotating spirit. This weekly class features a changing line up of alcohol, where you learn about its history, how it’s made, and have a chance to sample signature cocktails. We visited during a masterclass with Pisco Tres Generations, a boutique Pisco distillery from Peru where we discovered this liquor goes down deliciously easily.

Sunday Roast at Oxwell & Co
In England your weekend isn’t complete until you’ve stuffed yourself to the brim with a proper Sunday roast. And let’s face it, every once in a while you just crave a hearty meal full of meat and veg. Thankfully the guys from Oxwell & Co come from the land of Sunday Roast and bring to the table a good old fashioned (albeit a little bit fancy) English Sunday Roast with all the trimmings.
On the menu is a 28 day dry-aged striploin, welsh shoulder of lamb or roast spring chicken. If meat isn’t really your cup of tea then try their local pan roasted sea bass. All come with roast potatoes, gravy and yorkies (Yorkshire Pudding) to soak up all the wonderful meat juices. Be sure to wash it down with one of their five bottled ciders or one of their craft beers.
If you don’t want your weekend to stop, head to the bar afterwards to keep the fun going. Available every Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.

Vintage Champagne Brunch – The Ritz-Carlton Millenia
Singapore has no shortage of hotel Sunday brunch buffets, but the Vintage Champagne Brunch at Ritz-Carlton is one of the island’s best. Imagine a place where the shucked oysters on ice are actually fine oysters from France and Ireland and there are not 1 but 4 different types. The cheese selection is anything but ordinary with over 50 varieties from around the world. Forget the sliced sandwich meat some brunch buffets offer, this one has trays of Charcuterie. The indulgent offerings don’t end there as baked lobster smothered in cheese and butter as well as Beef Wellington and Veal Rack are the stars of the hot dishes.
Free-flow doesn’t have to mean low quality. At the Vintage Champagne Brunch, diners have a choice of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Blanc 2006, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2004, a selection of red and white wine, beer as well as Bombay gin & tonics and Spritzers made on demand. Loosen the belt buckle for this one! The Vintage Champagne Brunch is available every Sunday at S$188++ per adult.
