As much as we love brunch at Sassy Mama, we must admit that brunching with kids can sometimes be tough. Whether it’s struggling to find a kid-friendly menu (try teaching your 5-year-old how to eat oysters!) or trying in vain to keep wiggly munchkins from running through a crowded dining room or gilded hotel lobby, sometimes it feels like more trouble than it’s worth bringing the whole fam out for the best meal of the day. Thank goodness, then, for Café Melba, Singapore’s most family-friendly brunch destination.
Where to begin? Café Melba’s famous island-wide among kiddos for its legendary bouncy castle, which comes out every weekend to delight junior diners. It also gives parents time to enjoy some delicious beverages, from coffees, to fresh-squeezed juices, to bruncheriffic cocktails like Pimm’s Cup or the Signature Bloody Mary.
And if kids get tired of bouncing, they can still let out their energy on the giant grassy field adjacent to the restaurant. Between the soccer goals and the sandbox, there’s more to keep them entertained at brunch than you’ll find at your average playground. That’s the beauty of Café Melba’s lovely location at Goodman Arts Centre, a leafy compound filled with family-friendly arts and entertainment options. Another bonus: tons of parking spots, and a convenient location close to the SMRT, the CBD and the ECP.
Should the little ones decide to take a break from all that playing, they can enjoy Café Melba’s newly revamped kids’ menus; there’s one for toddlers aged 1-2 and another for kids aged 3 and up – talk about catering to their audience! Kids who prefer to stay inside will also enjoy their interactive colouring menu, along with the fun colouring stations that they’ll find throughout the restaurant.
The fun won’t stop when you finish eating, mama: one weekend a month Café Melba’s also got a family flea market with apparel from local designers, jewellery, toys, and even some great pre-loved items. So why not make a day of it bring the fam down? Thanks to Café Melba, your weekend brunches are now sorted!
Open weekdays from 10am-10pm; weekends and public holidays from 8:30am-10pm. Café Melba does not take reservations for breakfast and lunch on weekends and public holidays.
