THE MISSING PAN | Where to eat: From the guys behind wholesale bakery The Organic Baker comes a sleek new brunch place along Bukit Timah Road. The Missing Pan transforms an old shophouse unit into a cosy loft-style bakery-and-cafe, doling out artisanal baked goods on the ground floor while seating up to 40 in the brasserie upstairs. What to eat: Organic, artisanal and fresh-from-the-oven loaves of breads from the bakery. From organic sourdoughs to ryes to multigrain, a wide variety is available daily (from $6.80). Get them to go or grab a seat and enjoy a buttered slice with eggs and coffee. For a more substantial meal, head to the second floor. The basic brunch options here might be a tad on the expensive side, but they are given a unique reinterpretation. Their eggs benedict with smoked salmon is slow-poached and smeared with seaweed paste ($22). Try the Over Hangover, an open sandwich of chicken schnitzel, bacon, sunny-side egg on sourdough with bacon vinaigrette ($19).

COOK & BREW | Where to eat: Up on the 33rd floor of the new The Westin Singapore, this gastro-pub is more than just a venue for your office executives doing power lunches. Sure it might be in a swanky business hotel, but Cook & Brew’s casual gastrobar vibe is a welcoming place for all. We’ll go there for the magnificent view of the Marina Bay alone. What to eat: With something for everyone, the venue serves modern interpretation of classical pub favourites and local comfort food. An enomatic wine system allows customers the option of tasting wines from a meticulously-curated list before buying a full or half-glass of the chosen ambrosia. Beer drinkers will love the more than 100 selection of beers from 17 different countries (from $8).
