If you love nothing more than a weekend brunch (and let’s face it, who doesn’t love brunch?), then we are ready to serve you up the best places to do just that. We have on offer, in our selections, all day breakfasts, decadent free flowing champagne, jazzy vibes and an array of international cuisine. It is not Singapore with its choices, but we have the best brunch spots ready and waiting for your visit.

1. Shangri La

The Shangri La Hotel, 1 Galle Face, Colombo 02 | Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm | 011 788 8288 | CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO EASTER ATTATCKS. RE-OPENING IN 2020.

An exceptional brunch menu; the array of delicious foods is jaw dropping. They always keep their standards very high. The dessert section is beyond decadent and scrumptious! Kids below 6 eat for free when accompanied by a paying adult; children 6-12 have a 50% discount on the buffet price.

2. One Up All-Day Breakfast

330, 4 Colombo – Galle Main Rd, 00400 | Opening Hours: 8am-3.30pm, Closed on Mondays | 0112 508 201
This place has the Aussie chilled breakfast vibe all over it. Prepare to queue on the weekend, it is super popular and very small. This is the place to go to get your American pancake fix; we also love the Mr. Benny (eggs benedict), oh and the Cluck Norris chicken sandwich will blow any hangover away.

3. Movenpick Hotel Colombo

24 Srimath Anagarika Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 03 | 0117 450 450
They’ve got a fantastic selection of international foods and a whole separate room for kids and their own food choices. This is a very popular choice with T&T, and we particularly love their Ottolenghi style salads, which are delicious. Kids under 6 eat for free when accompanied by a paying adult.

4. The Kingsbury Colombo

48 Janadhipathi Mawatha, Colombo 01 | 0112 421 221
They offer a Caviar & Oyster Brunch; which includes a glass of sparkling wine (yippee! The only thing better than wine is sparkling wine. And wine cocktails. But we digress.). They have a good selection of international cuisines as well as local fare. They have child supervision so parents can eat some food, and they offer pool usage to brunch guests. Win win. Perfect place to spend the whole day.

5. Taj Samudra

25 Galle Face Center Rd, Colombo 01 | 0112 446 622
A very good buffet selection with different food stations including Japanese, Indian and western. Their tag line is “come for brunch, stay for a swim.” Not wildly catchy but it gives you the info you need. A lovely venue for the whole family.

6. Hilton Colombo Residences (JAIC Hilton)

200 Union Pl, Colombo 02 | 0115 344 644
Served around the pool, you can eat outside or inside where there is AC. They’ve often entertainment for the children; grown-ups can sit around the pool and enjoy their Sunday.

7. Barefoot Garden Café

704 Galle Rd, Colombo 04 | Opening Hours: 10am-7 pm, open from 11am-5.30pm on Sundays | 0112 589 305
There’s always a live band playing, along with specials of the day. Held in an outside courtyard, it is an ideal lazy tropical brunch with friends and family.
