Little Island Brewing Company is a microbrewery that, on its own, is worth a trek to the east. What’s on tap: a rotating selection of pale, golden and Scottish red ales, wheat beer, and stout. Couple that with smokehouse fare such as brisket, pork belly and ribs.

Blast to the past
Set in an ulu corner near Changi Village, The Coastal Settlement is great for getting away from it all. The spacious diner evokes nostalgia with soothing oldies, Vespas, vinyl records and even ice kachang machines. Opt for classic brunch fare like eggs Benedict or nasi lemak in the al fresco area.

Art on your latte
Heart-shaped latte art’s overdone – take it up a notch with the 3D latte art at the charming Chock Full of Beans. Think grinning cats, Totoro or a wild Snorlax popping up from your drink. Flavours such as hazelnut, maple, rose and Baileys will ensure
your cuppa’s more than just good to look at, too.

Breakfast of champs
Long queues are the norm for International Nasi Lemak, a stall at Changi Village that serves up the rice dish with all the trimmings: fried chicken wings, ikan bilis, fried ikan kuning and otah. Whatever you do, don’t miss the sambal – it’s spicy, fragrant and extremely moreish.
