Where to eat with kids in Singapore

For a day out with the family, Singapore has a huge array of quirky and fun-filled dining options that will ensure everyone is well-fed and that your kids are entertained. From craft corners to pancake decorating, choose between these restaurant options for a fantastic meal everyone will equally enjoy.


East Coast Park is the perfect place for a family day out, and if you’re looking for a place to stop for a bite to eat, SandBank is a great choice. Located at Parkland Green, it’s easy to reach from the public transport links at Marine Parade, or if you’re driving, stop at Carpark C. The Weekend Breakfast Buffet is highly recommended, combining international food with favourite local fare - including nasi lemak, roti prata and congee. You’ll be treated to a beautiful view of the ocean and shaded by palm trees. What really makes SandBank stand out though, is its very own beachfront plunge pool - it’s 15m long and divided into sections for kids and adults, so you can be sure your kids are entertained and also safe. In the evenings, the restaurant offers a huge selection of handmade pizzas, grills and barbecues, and the view of the ocean sunset makes this restaurant even more special.


To combine lunch with unlimited entertainment, Thyme@Aliwal is the place to bring your kids to. It’s one of Singapore’s best craft cafes, nestled in the quaint streets around Bugis and Arab Street and with decor that matches the location - it has a distinctly vintage and laid back vibe. The arts and crafts corner of the cafe is available for $5 per child, and is filled with every kind of art supply under the sun. While the kids are busy, feast upon a selection of classy bistro-style fare, from European to Asian, like Claypot Braised Tofu and Vegetable Linguini. It’s also a great place to come for brunch, with a wide selection of international dishes and an affordable menu.

Slappy Cakes

For a fun-filled breakfast experience where you’ll be just as entertained as your kids, visit Slappy Cakes. The concept here is that you can enjoy making pancakes right at your table - each table comes with a heat plate in the centre, so you can flip your way through breakfast. In each of the three locations in Singapore - The Grandstand, Resorts World Sentosa and Plaza Singapura - your kids will have the choice to build their own pancakes from scratch. Batters come in novelty flavours like peanut butter or pandan, and the wide variety of toppings include sweet treats like berries, chocolate chips and shredded coconut, as well as savoury options like honey roast ham and chopped scallions. Top off with delectable sauces including lavender honey and maple syrup and you’re ready to learn the craft of crepe-making as you dine out with your family.

Camp Kilo Charcoal Club

For a whimsical but high quality dining experience, visit Camp Kilo Charcoal Club, located in an idyllic riverside location in Kallang. Aiming for a backyard-style barbecue experience, bring your kids and enjoy the communal and rustic atmosphere, and gather around one of the wooden picnic style tables outside. Star of the show here is the whole roast pig, which is slow cooked each day and perfect for sharing. Complement it with Whole BBQ Fish and some of their celebrated vegetable sides - like Burnt Carrots and Tamarind Brussel Sprouts. It’s a great place to gather family and share delectable food in a casual setting.

Little House of Dreams

For those with a sweet tooth, Little House of Dreams in bucolic Dempsey Hill is one of the best places to bring the kids for a day out. The pink facade will immediately draw you in, and the independent bakery-bistro serves food that will rival even the interior with its frothy whimsicality. Seating is under an incredible floral-inspired canopy created by local paper designer Ektory, and the room is draped with fairy lights. The menu is filled with fun and flavour-filled fusion food that’s perfect for sharing, from chilli crab fries to prawn laksa spaghetti. The star of the show though are the desserts. Indulge in classic, expertly made cakes in vanilla, chocolate and red velvet flavours, or treat your kids to some of the cafe’s own unique creations. Bloom Pots are flower-pot style bowls filled with cake and buttercream flowers, while Mess Jars fill rustic mason jars with layers of cake, buttercream and toppings from smarties to cookie dough.
