13 Brunch Places in Singapore Under S$20

Who says the most important meal of the day should burn a hole in your wallet?

Most of us would think of brunch places in Singapore as having a rather large price tag. It can cost upwards of S$20, and is something most of us might consider a splurge. Luckily, there are quite a number of brunch spots around our island that will set you back only less than S$20 (and this is after GST and service charge!). Best of all, these food places boast Insta-worthy interiors too, rendering your brunch outing an afternoon to be remembered. 

Brunch places in Singapore Under S$15

1. Breakfast Club

This is one of my favourite brunch places in Singapore, and it’s all thanks to its location. Situated in a coffee shop in Kovan, Breakfast Club boasts a diner-themed menu and kitchen; thus, it’s really quite a unique experience to dig into an American breakfast in a local coffee shop! 

Besides the traditional breakfast items of pancakes and eggs Benedict, perhaps what Breakfast Club is most known for is its Rosti. With toppings of sausage and egg (or just good ol’ plain) at less than S$9, it’s definitely one of the best affordable alternatives to Marché.

Probably one of the most affordable brunch places in Singapore, Sun Ray Cafe doubles up as a pet-friendly eatery too! With multiple brunch, pasta, burger, and even vegetarian options, you can easily order a few dishes without breaking the bank at all. 

My personal favourite is the Pesto Salmon Pasta, which for its price, is really strong in pesto flavour; the salmon was also crisp and seasoned to perfection!

(Did we mention that it’s at net price too?)

9. The Bread Shop

Perhaps my favourite brunch place in Singapore, The Bread Shop is a quaint eatery that also calls Kovan its home. Not only are their dishes flavourful and hearty, their drinks are the right amount of sweet and decadent. To top it all off, the service here is impeccable; there’s really no better place to start off your day at! 

My recommendations include the All-In Breakfast, the Classic Beef Stew, and the Smoked Duck Aglio Olio. If your appetite allows it, order the Garlic Bomb too, which is a large bread roll cut into bite-sized pieces and drizzled with garlic butter. The Toffee Nut Latte and Mint Mocha make for great beverage choices — the perfect morning perk-me-up.
