Conveniently located in the heart of the Orchard precinct sits Mezza9, a restaurant on the mezzanine level of Grand Hyatt Singapore that provides diners with 9 different dining experiences.

Fortunately, for those of us who aren't willing to spend so much for a lunch buffet, there's also a $128++ alcohol-free option that comes with free-flowing fruit juices and soft drinks.
A quick search online proved crucial for a discerning consumer like myself as there were so many mixed reviews of Mezza9.
Some who dined there for their regular menus left very disappointed despite forking out so much, while those who attended their Sunday Champagne brunch left with both their hearts and tummies full!
Many raved about the fantastic value that they get at the Sunday Champagne brunch - good spread of fresh, well-executed culinary delights, lovely cheeses and delicious desserts, generous portions of food and alcoholic beverages and excellent service.

Image source: thepinnaclelist.com
The Brasserie Les Saveurs' Sunday Champagne brunch buffet clearly isn't your run-of-the-mill Champagne buffet. It is a quality one that mainly caters to those who appreciate the finer things in life.
Even the way they run the buffet brunch is different - you start your Sunday brunch at St. Regis' Astor Bar with complimentary apéritifs an hour before making a beeline for the spectacular selection of food.
You'll be glad to know that your cocktails wouldn't be watered down despite being free-flowing and that you'll be in a tizzy with their sommeliers filling your flutes with their choice of quality Champagnes.
Besides touting Instagram-worthy food from the epicurean spread of hors d'oeuvres, cheeses, seafood, an exclusive degustation of the chef's signatures and delightful sweet treats, this restaurant that specializes in contemporary French cuisine is lovely to provide diners with live performances put up by their resident live band.

One-Ninety has a cosy ambience that would appeal to those who detest having to scramble and jostle.
Even though the buffet spread isn't quite as fantastic compared to many other buffet haunts, rest assured that whatever you find there is of amazing quality.
Here's when the axiomatic notion of "quality over quantity" is brought to life.
As One-Ninety offers a semi-lunch buffet style, diners have a choice of a main course from the menu and an eat-all-you-can buffet spread of appetisers, cured meats, fresh seafood, salads and desserts.
Word has it that the service you get is impeccable - something that is lacking in many restaurants these days.
Also, One-Ninety chefs have an arsenal of tricks up their sleeves; keep an eye out for their ‘Butcher's Trolley'!

8. Edge @ Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore
Image source: panpacific.com
The Edge probably holds the title of having the biggest assortment of quality food made available at a buffet spread just yet.
You'll find anything from their generously portioned foie gras, perfectly charred duck satay, full-bodied live grilled Japanese Ohmi wagyu to their signature duck confit ravioli, made-to-order French crepes and gluten-free red velvet cake.
The comprehensive range is overwhelmingly massive and I'm more than confident to say that an average individual will never get to try everything in one sitting.
Don't feel disheartened if you have to plan a return visit! What they have to offer is top-notch quality creations that will more than justify the price you're forking out.
The Edge offers a theatrical and interactive dining experience that provides a culinary tour of Singapore, the region and the Pacific Rim which many would find enthralling.
A lazy Sunday brunch at the Edge will prove to be a wonderful gastronomic experience for just about anyone who loves food and embraces unique takes and tastes.
