A list of breakfast spots in Singapore wouldn’t be complete without mentioning good old McDonald’s!

Think affordable fluffy hotcakes or the Breakfast Deluxe of scrambled eggs, toasty muffins and chicken sausage.

24. Springleaf Prata Place

Image: Springleaf

Sometimes you just want some really good, crispy prata for breakfast! Springleaf never disappoints, and we love that they have somehow made everything taste good on a prata. For kids, we say go for classics like plain, egg or cheese prata, and if they don’t mind trying something a little different (yet totally delicious), a banana prata or tissue prata (pictured above) would do the trick. For parents, try the Plaster Blaster – it’s basically Egg’s Benedict on a prata, complete with poached egg.
Serving breakfast from: most open from 8am (their West Coast outlet is open 24 hours!)
Springleaf, multiple locations in Singapore including Springleaf Garden, Upper Bukit Timah Road, Woodlands Road and Tampines

25. Toast Box

If you’re after the comforting taste of local kopi and teh, the crunch of simple white toast and the warmth of soft-boiled eggs, head to one of Toast Box’s 79 outlets in Singapore! They also have signature curry chicken with rice and other local delights to choose from.
Serving breakfast from: most open from 7:30am
Toast Box, multiple locations islandwide

26. Ya Kun Kaya Toast

Originating in 1926, Ya Kun Kaya Toast is truly the pioneer in the local coffee-tea-eggs-toast combo. You’ll find great tasting drinks here (including ice blended drinks for those who want something to beat the heat) plus steamed bread alongside the usual toast options.
Serving breakfast from: most open from 7:30am
Ya Kun Kaya Toast, multiple locations islandwide
