So many brunch spots, so little time! We have been busy eating our way around Singapore so that we could recommend weekend brunch spots to please both adults and kids. Check out the go-to seaside restaurant with kids entertainment, breakfast at the Zoo, restos with playgrounds, brunches with a view, and more. These are just a few of our favorites that also feature plenty of space for Bugaboos and shopping bags too…
The seaside destination brunch for families, the "Garden Party By the Sea” includes magic shows, balloon twisting, kids’-height buffet stations and complimentary use of the beach area for your sandcastle’s royalty. The food is enough-to-stuff with its Western and Chinese kitchen selection, featuring seafood delights and traditional brunch fare.
