Last Updated on 2016-05-19 , 1:35 pm

As the saying goes: breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

In a food paradise like Singapore, there are tons of choices for an important meal like this. But what happens if you wake up super-duper early for some reason and decides that you are going to have breakfast. Not at Kopitiams, not at the hawker centres, not at Yakun, then where else can you go?

Most of the cafes in Singapore actually opens at 9am, 10am or even 11am daily if they are serving brunch menus. But fret not, we have found out some delicious cafes serving breakfast for you early birds to reward your early waking.

1. Food For Thought @ Singapore Botanic Gardens

This outlet located at the Singapore Botanic Gardens is the perfect breakfast location before or after a refreshing walk in the Gardens. Enjoy a generous serving of breakfast from $8 with choices of scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, sunny side up, sautéed mushrooms, hashbrowns (which is really good)…

Apart from the usual Western-style breakfast dishes, this branch also sells local dishes. Recommended must try would be the mee rebus ($5), and you can get to add a cup of local black coffee, tea, or iced lime tea for $1 if you arrive between 7.30am to 10am with the purchase of any local breakfast item. What a deal!

2. Eggs & Berries

Under the Food Junction Group, Eggs & Berries is a nicely decorated eatery that serves awesome Eggs Benedict ($12.80) which won’t go wrong with the runny egg yolks. Alternatively, you can choose to have your eggs done in one of the four methods: over easy, poached, scrambled or sunny side up. For pancake and waffle lovers, they also have a wide selection for you to choose from.

They also offer an Early Riser Special (offered only from 8am to 9am) set which includes pancakes, a sunny-side up, bacon, sausage, hash brown and salad, all at a very affordable $8.50.

3. Riders Café

Hidden amongst the lush greenery at Bukit Timah Saddle Club, it gives off a countryside feel miles away from the city. Enjoy delicious dishes from the minimal menu and take some time off in the stables to see the horses or even grab a pony ride which starts at 10am nearby. Do try out their eggs benedict and eggs florentine and as they have been voted some of the top must try dishes at the café.

4. Slappy Cakes

Engage in some fun activities early in the morning. Make your own pancakes, right at your table. Choose a sweet or savoury pancake fillings, then a sauce, top it up with some tasty toppings and then slap it on the hot plate in front of you! It’d definitely be a one-of-a-kind dining experience and a great chance for some family bonding.

Opening Hours: 10am to 9.30pm (Tue – Fri), 8am to 9.30pm (Sat, Sun, PH, Sentosa Outlet)

5. Tiong Bahru Bakery

As obiang as it may sound, Tiong Bahru Bakery is not a traditional bakery selling all your kuehs but actually a casual café located at the quiet neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru. They have freshly baked bread and pastries to choose from and also some say the best croissants in town. Don’t forget to try their Kouign Amann ($3.50), a French pastry with a crusty exterior and sweet finish. Sinful as it is, but so damn good.
