Weekends are for relaxing and feasting – yes, even with the children in tow. You can do both at one of these kid-friendly weekend lunch and brunch options in Singapore. Enjoy!
Since the week is over, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy a sumptuous meal. But how can you do that with the kids as well? Perhaps one of these kid-friendly weekend brunch restaurants – they all have some form of entertainment for the little ones – would suffice.
Sunday Family Lunch at Seasonal Tastes
Seasonal Tastes has been offering its Sunday Family Lunch since April this year. Considering the full house it was when we were here, it seems like this is a hot favourite with families looking for a deliciously relaxing way to recharge over the weekend. Just looking at the gorgeous seascape out of the floor-to-ceiling picture windows is soothing. And if you’re lucky enough to be seated right next to that view, you may, like us, never want to leave.
Just for kids: The spacious kids’ area at one end has a mini buffet on low tables, hence smaller ones can easily reach for what they want. Kid-sized furniture and fun activities like cupcake decorating and colouring keep little hands busy, while mini aprons and chef hats help keep clothes clean. My children zoomed in on the bottles of Meiji milk – we’ve never seen these at any other buffet – as well as kid favourites like chicken sliders, potato wedges, potato and egg salad, fruit skewers, brownies, muffins, and gummies with marshmallows.

Love of Sunday Lunch Buffet at Marriott Cafe
The Marriott Cafe’s Sunday Lunch Buffet is an ideal start to a day of wining, dining, and post-lunch power shopping. Because the cafe sits smack at the crossroads of some of Orchard Road’s biggest malls, you can eat, then burn off some calories while browsing Singapore’s shopping street. But first, the food. There’s delightfully fresh seafood such as oysters, snow crabs, crayfish and prawns at the Seafood Station, and local dishes such as the Singapore Chilli Crab and Chicken Rice. Finally, try not to miss roasted delights like the Crispy Pork Saddle with Pancetta Prune and Mixed Herbs and Slow Roasted Prime Rib at the Beech Oven Station. These will probably keep the carnivores in the family satiated.
Just for kids: Children under five years dine for free. They can also order food from the la carte kids menu. Highchairs, child-sized cutlery, and activity booklets are available upon request.

Playtime Breakfast Buffet at The Salon
We love that The Salon’s Playtime Breakfast Buffet starts bright and early (just like the kids), at 7am every Saturday and Sunday. Because it goes on till 10.30am, there’s lots of time to get seriously stuffed. Kids can make requests at the live egg and pancake stations, and tuck into kid-friendly eats such as hash brown, ham and bacon, sausages, fruit yogurt, cereals, fruit, and baked bread. After the buffet ends (at 10.30am) they can still order from a children’s menu, which has favourites such as Fish & Chips, Spaghetti Pomodoro and brick oven-fired pizzas.
Just for kids: Head out to the patio for some active play! The Play Zone (available from 7am to 3pm) has toys and slides to keep little ones entertained. In addition, the surrounding greenery, lush views of Fort Canning Park and the city skyline are an extra sensory benefit. Most noteworthy is the fact that Hotel Fort Canning is a Businesses for Families accredited brand. This means it offers family-friendly amenities such as ramps (for wheelchairs and prams), private rooms for nursing, colouring books and activity sheets for kids, children’s dining sets, and high chairs for our littliest bubs.

Yum Cha Brunch at Mitzo Restaurant & Bar
How about a weekend brunch with a difference, like say, a buffet of Cantonese delicacies? If you’re hosting the extended family and the grandparents prefer something traditional, Mitzo Restaurant & Bar offers a great balance that will definitely satisfy everyone. Must-eats: the signature BBQ pork (char siew), the pretty dim sum, the wok dishes and seafood delicacies like Bamboo Clam, Live Lobster and Abalone dish. You’ll love the vibrant, cutting edge decor (which makes for exceptionally artsy photos) and the kids will adore cute treats such as snail-shaped escargot cheese puffs, wild mushroom buns, and Hokkaido milk cheese tarts (see picture above). Other child-friendly dishes on the menu include braised congee with scallop and hand-beaten Braised truffles pork ball.

The Knolls at Capella
Go ‘overseas’ to Sentosa, specifically, The Knolls at Capella, where the lush greenery, soothing scenery, and laid-back seaside vibe will give you all those holiday feels. The buffet here is offers a taste of the Mediterranean and is rather sublime, we’d say, with fresh seafood, fine-cut meats, cheeses, and dessert buffet that cannot be missed. Kids can order from the a la carte menu (like chicken nuggets, kids pasta, fries, upon request).
Just for kids: Thematic brunches (eg: Easter Brunch) offer special activities for children. When these are not the schedule, kids get child-sized cutlery, activity books like colouring pages and crossword puzzles. There’re the hotel’s iconic peacocks to look out for as well. Kids can also make song requests; the live band is more than willing to sing ‘ABC’ and ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars’ just for the little ones!
