5 all-day brunches to wake up late for on the weekendScrumptious spots for those who just need “five more minutes”
Did you know that brunch was inspired by the hangover? And, as we well know, waking up early on a weekend is even more difficult when you’re nursing the effects of a night of hard partying. So hit that snooze button– here are some all-day brunch places so you can sleep in and have your cake too.
1. The Marmalade Pantry at Downtown
Located at the lobby of the supremely green Oasia Hotel Downtown building, The Marmalade Pantry at Downtown serves up a beautiful brunch menu that offers slightly classier interpretations of staple dishes such as Pancakes and French Toast (served with tarragon-infused whipped yoghurt and smoked apple compote respectively). Go gluten-free with an Egg White Omelette that’s served with feta cheese, spinach and tomato concasse, and a side of mixed mushrooms, or spice it up with a Chorizo Frittata with wood-roasted red piquillo pepper.
2. The LoKal
This beautiful, hipster spot on the corner of Neil Road is beloved for its generous sizes and unique, full-flavoured offerings, including a customisable “Pimp My Breakfast” menu, which lists Homemade Kimchi, Beetroot Cured Salmon, and Smoked Mackerel as some of its options. We’re sad to see that the Buttermilk Pancakes and Steak & Eggs are weekday-only items (so you know where to go even after the weekend is over), but other tried-and-tested hangover-curing goodies on the weekend brunch menu are The Black Pig 2.0 and The Sunday Roast (the latter only available on Sundays from 11am onwards). You generally can’t go wrong here, but do note that brunch is only served till 3.30pm so you don’t sleep in too late.
