Sunday Brunch at Prive Bakery Cafe, Singapore

Singapore Food Blog

When Arnold from Mr Gadget was in town last weekend, our plan was to meet for brunch. It was a choice between having Sunday Brunch at Prive or our familiar local Singapore breakfast of kaya toast. But above all, Valerie and I wanted to show him the beautiful Keppel Bay.

Prive Bakery & Cafe at Keppel Island serves all day breakfast, burgers, pastas, sandwiches, milkshake and desserts. The menu is simple, nothing fancy – just causal and comfort food.

“I want pancakes, I want pancakes..” I could almost hear my heart whispering to itself.

Oh my, the pancakes – they are so good! This is one thing that I can have everyday without getting sick of it. They taste great with a scoop of ice cream, or if you are like me, I’d rather have them with just syrup and butter. Lots of butter. Prive’s Bakery Cafe Fluffy Pancake ($13.5), the one you see on the picture up there, gave us a little surprise – there was a small honeycomb that came along with the pancakes. Do I like it? I love it!

As it was a late brunch at 3pm – no, no one overslept – the rationale decision was to go for something light and share. The choice of the Ultimate Breakfast ($17) was unanimously agreed by the three of us. Two poached eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans and toast. I-love-breakfast!

Breakfast all day, everyday.

Sunday Brunch

My eyes darted to the ‘burger’ section subconsciously; just like how a guy would suddenly straighten up when a pretty girl stepped into the room.

“Burger?” I gave my dining companions an innocent look.

“No! We are having Italian dinner at 7pm, remember?”

Bummer – I sulked, and protested. Oh well, at least there’s an Italian feast waiting with all the pasta, risotto and tiramisu. Anyway, the alternative was the Seafood wrap. I was pretty skeptical. I mean, how good can a wrap be when there’s burger? This is their famous 200g Wagyu beef burger that we are talking about. To my our surprise, it’s actually very decent. Generous fillings of the seafood ingredients were kept in the thin yet sturdy wraps.

Prive Bakery Cafe remains one of my favorite place for brunch. There’s nothing fantastic about the food, just simple, well-executed comfort food served at reasonable prices. It’s hard not to like this place, if you haven been here, I’m sure you’d like it. Trust me.

After coming up with the list of breakfast places in Singapore, I have this crazy idea to indulge in brunch every weekend, lets call this project #brunch52. On the quest for the best brunch in Singapore, get on with it!

Sundays are meant for brunch – Prive serves brunch daily till 5pm.

Ahh! Another place to add to my ‘to try’ list! Nick saw the Ultimate Breakfast photo and his mouth started to water; and I’m completely sold with the view! (I absolutely love cafes and such over-looking the sea/harbour!) Thank you for this Brad! xx

i went riders yesterday, love it. the simple atmosphere and food is nicer than jones.

I love my pancakes just with butter and maple syrup too.. ice cream just make it soggy..

Hehe I love this post. In fact, I love every of your breakfast or brunch posts! It’s strangely nice to see breakfast lovers rave so much about breakfast too! Ashamed to say that I have not visited riders or prive yet… But soon. Soon!

I am going to try the seafood wrap. I adore wraps!

I checked out Wild Honey today. Love it, altho for the price, some service and acceptance of reservations would be good.

I liked the Tunisian breakfast set there.

Hi Brad,

Another great post with eye-candy photos!

Just wanted to say thanks for organising such a delicious brunch with Val. Both food and company were great!!

I’ll never forget the location either because of the photos we took with dramatic Singaporean sky backdrop.

Hopefully we can hang out again in SG or in Melbourne.

Keep up the great work,
Arnold

cleartear: riders is one of my all time favorite place for brunch, glad to hear that you had a good time!

Josephine: well, bring our your calendar and mark off this Sunday, you ARE going to prive/riders for brunch, report back to me after you are done. haha

Arnold: No worries, the next time you come, I’ll bring you to riders cafe, another of my favorite place for brunch, trust me you will love it there too! : )

Neat! I’m a real sucker for brunch food. It’s one of the things I miss most about the US, I think. I’ve been to Prive but not the Cafe. And it ain’t all too far from my home. Great recommendation!

yummmmay. what a lovely destressing post. can’t wait for the day i’m free enough to go enjoy good food :)

Clare: I been to the cafe three times but have yet to try the restaurant! haha

Eleonora: Thank you dear! drop by often yeah? See you around!

emily: hahaha eat-all-you-can the moment you are free ok!

Been to Prive for the first time last Sunday for brunch..you are damn right to list it as one of ur favourites..I’m totally hooked on their poached eggs with oozing egg yolk..=D

stef: HAHA cannot compare this way, but then riders cafe pancakes are slightly more affordable, there’s three there and two here.

irony: so happy to hear that you like it! hehe have you tried epicurious and riders cafe? those two are my other favorites : )

Hi Brad,
Head over to this breakfast place because of your review. the food was good. For some reasons, I still prefer riders cafe

Also, this place, according to the staff, the dont serve breakfast all day,it is only till 5pm. And they dont take in reservation if the table is for two person.

Ladyironchef, have you been to Prive again recently? I’ve been living in Singapore since May and use your list as a guide as everywhere we have tried so far has been wonderful! Riders Cafe and Mandarin Oriental are my favorites so far. My boyfriend and I tried Prive this weekend and had the worst service experienced in a very long time. We both ordered milkshakes, he ordered a Caesar salad and I ordered a burger. His milkshake arrived almost immediately and he finished it before mine arrived. We realized they had forgotten so reminded them and mine had been given to another table. His salad arrived before my milkshake did. My milkshake finally arrived and I finished it before my burger was in sight. About 20 minutes later my burger arrived and we complained about the awful timing so they made a fresh salad for my boyfriend. Since neither of us had drinks any longer, we asked for sparkling water and it was brought just after they cleared our table from finishing our food. Really despicable service and clueless kitchen timing. Very disappointing for such a lovely location and seemingly yummy menu. Our food was ok and I noticed a neighboring table had overcooked eggs in their eggs benedict. We won’t be rushing back unfortunately.

somer: I’m so sorry to hear about the bad experience. Yes, I went back several times recently. Service can be quite unpredictable there though, but I love the place and the food. Which other brunch places are you guys going to try out next?
