Breakfasts of Champions

We are constantly told by parents, doctors and trainers alike that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's a meal we often either skip or replace (with brunch, coffee, or a big lunch), due to laziness or lack of time though. These are no excuses for skipping breakfast on holiday though and in these cases, you won't be looking for an excuse anyway - these breakfasts are irresistiblyy good!

Everything is bigger in America, including the draw for foodies looking for the biggest and best grub abroad. There is no exception to this if you choose The Standard Hotel in the Big Apple, where the breakfast menu is as long as the streets of New York City itself. One of New York's most stylish hotels, The Standard sets the standard from the very off with a spectacular breakfast experience which will leave you wanting more of the New York experience. 
 
On top of the more traditional and universal fare on offer, you'll find high-end takes on some American favourites, from the Seven Grain Waffle with spiced apple, pecans and bourbon cream to the mouth-watering almond-crusted french toast complete with cherry compote. Better still, why not try New York's staple, the bagel with cream cheese?

Alternatively, start the morning in the best way imaginable with the finest New York Strip Steak with eggs and chimichurri!

Renowned for serving the famous Singapore Sling cocktail, Raffles Singapore has also developed a strong reputation for putting on an excellent spread for their Buffet Brunch every Sunday. Set in the hotel's exclusive Bar and Billiard room, guests will be treated the a taste of the high life, with this stunning room serving as an appropriate venue for such high quality food.

Relish a champagne breakfast and start off your Sunday in the best way possible. Once you've braced yourself, or the aroma has become too enticing to ignore anymore, head up to the buffet and take your pick of plentiful gourmet brunch options, with lobster, freshly shucked oysters, antipasti and a generous selection of cured cuts of meat from across the globe. 

This will be the most elegant way you may ever start a Sunday morning and it will leave you wondering how you used to thing fried eggs could cut it!


The Al Qasr Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai, could perhaps boast the greatest brunch of them all, however. The resort's offerings in numbers reads as follows: "One Resort, two brunches, six restaurants, over 200 chefs, 500 dishes, 1000 coconuts and 1000kgs of meat - it can only be Friday brunch at Madinat Jumeirah". This is almost certainly the case - you won't find anywhere that does brunch this big.

This lavish buffet set-up draws inspiration from each of the restaurants that it spans across, showcasing a host of international dishes in the process. From these restaurants, you'll also enjoy enchanting views of the stunning lagoon, and have the choice between indoor and al fresco dining on the terrace.

Flexible and suitable for all visitors, couples and parents alike will embrace the Moet bubbly brunch to mark an occasion or simply make their stay that extra bit special. For the kids, a separate children's area with its own buffet and entertainment will keep them satisfied, with a special interactive turtle feeding session and Sinbad's play club more than enough for them to keep busy.

As for the food, enjoy almost anything you can imagine from freshly barbequed wagyu burgers, to delicious desserts, taking in live entertainment as you do. Whichever way you look at it, this is the brunch to end all brunches.
