Weekend Brunches are quite a rage in the little Red Dot and there are scrumptious treats for vegetarians if you love eggs, dairy or a great lacto-ovo combo. Here are the vegetarian weekend warriors!
Common Man Coffee Roasters, Robertson Quay
As you walk into Common man, the invigorating smell of morning coffee wafts through the brew bar, waking you up instantly. CMCR has their own custom coffee machine and “uncommon” blends that pair perfectly with a mid-morning brunch.
Budget: SGD 20-25/ head with coffee and dessert to share
Green Favorites: Turkish Common Man Breakfast Phyllo-wrapped soft-boiled organic egg, crispy feta, fresh cucumber & tomatoes, olives & hummus, with pita bread
Common Man Veggie Wonderland Two free-range organic eggs in any style, halloumi, spinach, grilled tomatoes, portobello mushrooms, avocado, lemon & chilli, with artisanal sourdough or pepita toast
Sweet Tooth: Grilled Almond Cake served with salted caramel ice-cream (Gluten Free)
Penny University, East Coast Road
I am positively addicted to the delightful coffee and Turkish eggs served at Penny. This is simply the best value for money brunch spot I have found. Mornings are quite busy with a relatively long wait time so I recommend that you get there early like we do, right after an early morning badminton game or run.
Budget: SGD 10-15/ head with Coffee
Green favorites: Turkish eggs with Greek Yogurt and Harissa, Eggs Florentine, French Toast, Waffles with Berries
Brew: Muddy Espresso, Cappucino
Wild Honey, New Mandarin Gallery
If you fancy shopping after a satisfying weekend brunch, Wild Honey is your place for a beautiful all-day breakfast. The menu has a range of sweet, savory, bubbly and fruity delights to pick from. Special vegetarian dishes spanning Turkish, Mexican and Gluten Free will keep you coming back for more. Common Man Coffee Roasters Brew is served here.
Budget: SGD 25-30/ head with coffee
Green Favorites: Mexican, Ottoman, Flinders Lane
