Romantic Cafes In Singapore

Like most Singaporeans, I look forward to the weekends mainly for two reasons ‒ 1) I get to sleep in, and 2) treat myself to brunch at romantic cafes with my boyfriend. 

If you’re looking for new brunch spots to explore and kickstart your morning, or afternoon, below is a list of cafes that you’ll want to KIV. 

1. Surrey Hills Grocer – The Woodleigh Mall

With the recent opening of Surrey Hills at The Woodleigh Mall, you can turn brunch into a family affair with your sweetheart and your furbabies. After all, our four-legged children also deserve special outings, and this Australian grocer and cafe is designed to accommodate both humans and pets in a nature-themed environment with woody accents and decor.

While you and your partner indulge in fluffy pancakes from the iconic Melbourne pancake chain, The Pancake Parlour, your furkids also get their own pet menu with some tasty options using human-grade ingredients.
