[UPDATED 14 December 2021] With restrictions easing, there's no better plan than to catch up with a friend over brunch! Nothing beats waking up to Eggs Benedict, Full English Breakfast or coffee 😍 Remember to book a reservation before you go, as some brunch cafes can get busy and will not accept walk-ins. That's why we've rounded up these 18 halal cafes in Singapore that are perfect for halal breakfast and halal brunch hangouts with a buddy or your partner this weekend! Note: Some of these cafes are by reservation-only and no walk-ins are allowed.
