Nothing cements a celebration than bringing out a bottle of champagne. Pop the cork, and you’re plunged into anticipation that marks the start of a good time. In honour of the long Easter holiday weekend ahead, we’re proposing a toast: take your family out to celebrate at any of these champagne brunches.
They’re classic indulgences, full of quality food and free-flow bubbly. There is even a number of restaurants around the island holding special Easter renditions of champagne brunches that aren’t just adult-friendly, but great for your kids too. Y’know, so they won’t feel left out and bother you as you’re busy doing adult things, like drinking all the champers your body can handle. We’re all for responsible parenting.
Here are five of the best champagne brunches to savour this Easter holiday.
Head out from the city to W Singapore, and enjoy a quick respite from the overcrowded shopping malls you’d be otherwise trapped in. The hotel’s Hop, Skip and Sip brunch at The Kitchen Table restaurant promises luxurious dishes like salmon confit with spicy tomato chocolate coulis and braised beef cheeks drenched in dark chocolate ganache, made with the freshest ingredients. You get free-flow champagne, house wines and cocktails, as well as pool access. If this sounds like a well deserved treat, take it a step further and book a staycation.
This brunch is held on 16 April, between 12-2 p.m., or 2.30-4.30 p.m., S$188++ per adult, and $78++ for children aged 6 to 12.

Eight live cooking stations, a six-metre long dessert table, a dedicated cheese room and a steady supply of champagne are Opus’ promises to you this Easter. It’s a true continental spread, encompassing fresh seafood from Australia, France and U.S. alongside Europe’s finest cheese, meats and beyond. It also boasts unique additions to the buffet line-up, including a teppanyaki ice-cream station that serves freshly carved ice cream, as well as an eggnog chocolate fountain. Your stomach will thank you.
This brunch is held on 16 April, between 12-3 p.m. from S$168++ per adult, and S$55++ per child aged 5 to 12.

If you fancy some mod-Cantonese cuisine with your champers, head over to Mitzo. This Easter, executive head chef Nicky Ng will be offering a menu of seven egg dishes on top of the usual Mitzo brunch menu. Expect tantalising portions of deep-fried quail egg coated in truffle peanut sauce and stir-fried egg with shredded abalone to accompany the restaurant’s signature char siew and dim sum options. The only caveat here is that you get one glass of your chosen libation for the price, but it’s still one to explore if you’re gunning more for eating, and less drinking.
This brunch is held on 15 and 16 April, between 11.30-2.30 p.m. from S$88++ per adult.
Mitzo, Level 4, Grand Park Orchard, 270 Orchard Road, Singapore 238857, +65 6603 8855
Raffles Grill at the Raffles Hotel will be hosting a champagne brunch that just oozes decadence. Get an endless supply of Billecart-Salmon champagne to go with dishes like Kristal caviar on blinis, Maine lobsters, tiger prawns, Omaha beef tenderloin, pan-fried cauliflower and more. There are also egg-hunting games and goodie bags for children, so they’ll be well and truly occupied.
This brunch is held on 16 April, between 12-3 p.m. from S$198++ per adult.
