Let Skyscanner be your guide as we uncover the best bubbly brunches in town. So grab your girls, pop the bottle and let the feasting begin!
1. Bar & Billiard Room, Raffles Hotel
Boasting an exquisitely decadent spread and an iconic setting, the Raffles' champagne brunch is hard to beat. Tuck into a smorgasbord of seafood options - from gourmet Belon and Fine de Claire oysters to chilled Maine lobster. If you're more of a carnivore, head over to the carving station, where you can gorge on succulent slices of Australian Grain-Fed Prime Rib, Welsh Rack of Lamb, and Omaha Beef Tenderloin.
Or how about some Scottish smoked salmon and pan-seared foie gras if you're feeling extra fancy? Make sure you leave room for the divine dessert selection: in between the hand-crafted pralines, macarons, and sumptuous pastries like the Kalamansi Meringue Sable and Mixed Berries Cheesecake, there's every excuse to indulge that sweet tooth!
When: Sundays, 12-3pm
Price: $198 for adults (with free flow of Billecart-Salmon champagne)
2. Colony Restaurant, Ritz-Carlton
The Ritz-Carlton has revamped its famous brunch, and it's bigger and better than ever. Featuring eight 'conservatory kitchens' that reflect Singapore's heritage cuisines, this is one multicultural feast you won't forget. The Vintage Champagne Brunch serves up a medley of Chinese, Malaysian, Indian and Western dishes - so whether you love laksa, Shanghai dumplings or Wagyu Beef Wellington, there's something here for everyone.
The hand-pulled beef brisket noodles are a mouthwatering treat, while seafood lovers can savour the herb butter grilled lobster. There's even a fruit stall where you can create your own freshly pressed juice! Don't leave without trying the crepe suzette, which is served with ice cream inspired by local flavours like Chendol and Gula Melaka: a truly out of this world combination.
When: Sundays, 12-3.30pm
Price: $188 for adults (with free flow of Moet & Chandon champagne)
3. Town Restaurant, Fullerton Hotel
With impeccable service and one of the most generous buffet spreads in town, it's no wonder that brunch at the Fullerton Hotel is such a popular affair. Start your culinary adventure at the Japanese counter, which is brimming with fresh sashimi, sushi, and tempura. The seafood ice bar is equally decadent, with everything from luscious snow crab and scallops to tasty mussels.
If you're a breakfast fiend, let yourself be tempted by the eggs benedict and berry pancakes; but if you're in more of a lunch mood, the roasted duck or champagne risotto should do the trick. Prepare to be awestruck by the Fullerton's exquisite selection of desserts, which boasts a chocolate fountain as its centrepiece. Just remember: it's a marathon, not a sprint, so pace yourself accordingly!
When: Sundays, 12-3.30pm
Price: $155 for adults (with free flow of Perrier Jouet champagne)
4. Equinox Restaurant, Swissotel The Stamford
What could be better than a champagne brunch with breathtaking views? The city skyline is an idyllic backdrop for Equinox's mouthwatering buffet at Swissotel The Stamford, which draws on a vast array of cuisines. Choose from intriguing dishes like spicy Szechuan-style tiger prawn, BBQ stingray, and whole roasted chicken stuffed with lemon and thyme - or why not try them all?
Last but not least, there's the glorious waffle and ice cream station, as well as sinful desserts including the caramelized banana chocolate souffle. Equinox even has a dedicated kid's corner, complete with toys and video games, so you can feast in style while your tykes are happily occupied. Every last Sunday of the month, there's a Pink Brunch with free-flowing Moet & Chandon Rose Champagne - could there be a more perfect excuse for a repeat visit?
When: Sundays, 11-2.30pm
Price: $158 for adults (with free flow of Moet & Chandon champagne)
5. Basilico Restaurant, Regent Hotel
If you like your brunch with an Italian twist, then you're sure to be in food heaven at Basilico at Regent Hotel. The lavish spread of cold cuts, antipasti and different types of fresh mozzarella is a real highlight; and did we mention that there's a separate room dedicated to every kind of cheese you can imagine?
Don't miss the wonderfully tasty squid ink bread, or the fragrant truffle risotto, which are both to die for. And of course, there's a scrumptious gelato and sorbet bar to satisfy those dessert cravings, with tantalising homemade flavours like espresso, nougat, and mango. Only one question remains: champagne or prosecco?
6. The Knolls, Capella Hotel
For a luxurious brunch in an elegant yet cosy atmosphere, look no further than Capella Hotel in Sentosa. This Mediterranean-inspired buffet offers plenty of creative canapes, including duck rillette burgers with apricot chutney. The BBQ station is a meat lover's paradise, dishing out sausages, kebabs and beef short-ribs galore; another standout is the delightfully crispy suckling pig.
Just one important tip: make sure you request outdoor seating. As you soak up the lush, al fresco vibe and sip on a glass of Taittinger champagne, you'll feel as blissfully relaxed as if you were on holiday.
When: Sundays, 12.30-3 pm
Price: $178 for adults (with free flow of Taittinger champagne)
