Whether your choice is Eggs Benedict (of which there are plenty) or a greasy English fry-up, Singapore’s got it, and she’s got it pretty good. Here’s a list of all the best brunch spots in the Lion City for you to get your weekend’s first meals to a roaring start. If we’ve missed out any (hotel buffet brunches notwithstanding – that’s for another story), pardon us – we had to get to the yolks while they were still runny.

FOR GOOD FRENCH TOAST AND SWEET TREATS | Some love Antoinette’s light, cracker-like baguette. We prefer the pain perdu (French toast served with Chantilly crème, $11.50) and all day breakfasts ($12-$22) – both possess more body and character than the hollow baguette. The pain perdu is made with brioche bread (eggs and butter overload!), giving it a more decadent character, while all-day breakfasts range from eggs with smoked duck breast to Serrano ham. The Lavender outlet (Opening hours: Mon-Thu 11am-10pm; Fri 11am-11pm; Sat 10am-11pm; Sun 10am-10pm) is our preferred – a little out of the way but not really, tucked into a shophouse with a quaint, pastel-schemed frontage reminiscent of Parisian macaron bakeries. The indoor ceiling is low, but at least you’re not stuck in the bowels of a mall.
Do more than just send a card this Mother's Day and show some appreciation by way of the belly. From traditional Chinese favourites to lavish seafood filled Champagne lunches to surprise cake deliveries, here's how to treat your mother like a queen
Food fads. Some stay, some go. Some score high, others dip low. We take stock of the more eye-catching ones (clue: there's a lot of rainbow action) and single out who in Singapore will be the first to jump on the bandwagon
