Because brunch is best enjoyed with the family!
Get the kids excited about brunch this August! We’ve rounded up a great selection of restaurants offering special kid’s deals (who doesn’t love it when kids eat free), kid’s only menus that go beyond the usual selection and even playrooms to let the little ones stretch their restless legs (and give Mum and Dad a break too). From Kowloon to the Southside, you’re sure to find something here the whole family will love.
For a more upmarket affair that is still family-friendly, look to Tai Pan and Cotton Tree Terrace at The Murray Hotel. Mum and Dad will appreciate the extensive buffet selection of imported cheese and charcuterie, smoked seafood, pastries and carvery along with freshly shucked oysters and mains served to the table. Meanwhile, the kids are treated to their very own children’s area complete with special fun foods that are sure to please.
A bright and airy setting, Ruinart champagne and the freshest Japanese in town is what brunch at Zuma is all about. Watch the chefs expertly prepare plates of izakaya favourites as you go back for seconds (and probably thirds) of the selected seasonal dishes from the counter. Expect amazing sashimi, nigiri and maki along with tempura, takoyaki (octopus balls), karaage chicken and more.
Once you’re done indulging, settle in for your main course served to the table. The kids will love seeing the chefs in action and there are plenty of familiar dishes to satisfy discerning young tastebuds.
If you haven’t had a chance to try this pop-up Burmese Brasserie yet, you’re in luck! This Yangon favourite is sticking around Sai Ying Pun for another three months. The brunch menu is great value ($358 for unlimited dishes and add on free-flow Perrier-Jouët for $228) and, of course, delicious.
You can expect to try all the highlights of the Pansodan menu like crab biryani, Rakhine fish curry and, this Mama’s favourite, the Burmese pâté. If you’re wondering whether you can get the kids to try something so exotic, order them a bowl of the Mohinga, a noodle soup that is sure to please and follow it up with a lovely coconut panna cotta.
A sure way to please families is to offer up a delicious kid’s meal that is free! That’s right, with the Barvellous Brunch at Wooloomooloo Prime, the kids (up to 10 years old) eat free of charge. With a selection that includes Mini Beef Burgers and Fish and Chips, along with ice-cream for dessert, little mouths are sure to be satisfied.
For the grown-ups at the table, Wooloomooloo invites you to enjoy a leisurely four-course brunch with the option of adding on different free-flow drink packages – including juice and sodas (for a very reasonable $100), prosecco, wine and beer ($200), gin and tonics ($250) or martinis ($300).

Summer days are made to be spent by the beach and there’s no better location than Limewood at Repulse Bay. While it doesn’t have a specific brunch menu, families are sure to love the sharing dishes as well as the dedicated kid’s menu. Our little ones have their eye on the chicken skewers with coconut rice and the churros for dessert. Parents can kick back with a wonderful cocktail (the pineapple and kaffir lime margarita is a winner) or a healthy detox drink while kids won’t feel left out with their very own kid’s mocktail! Finish your meal by hitting the beach for a great summer weekend.

Mamas in the know have long had The Pawn on their list of family-friendly brunches. The menu has something for both those leaning towards breakfast in the afternoon as well as more traditional lunchtime options.
It wouldn’t be brunch without free-flow options and The Pawn is no different. Take your pick from the Sober Brunch ($498) including soft drinks, cold-pressed juices and smoothies, or upgrade to The Boozy Brunch ($598) which includes a selection of champagne, Bloody Marys, wines, beers and ciders. But what about the kids? For each adult dining, one child under 12 eats free! There’s also a playroom for when little ones get a bit restless at the table.
For those who love all things pink, Beauty In The Pot is the place for you. This Singapore hot pot restaurant launched in Hong Kong earlier this year and has become beloved by Instagrammers for its signature princess pink theme. Mums will love the nutritional benefits of the nourishing soup bases (including the Signature Beauty Collagen Broth for those wanting bright, glowing skin) and the kids will love the colourful indoor soft play area for kids aged 3 to 7 years old.
