No self-respecting city dweller lets a weekend go past without doing brunch. We round up our local offerings in Sai Kung.
Available exclusively on weekends and public holidays, St Barts offers plenty of brunch staples such as avocados and eggs, but also some surprising choices such as corn fritters ($130), sweet potato rosti ($125), and the mysteriously named Hangover Burger ($95). Drinks include freshly squeezed fruit mixes, smoothies, slushies, and shakes.

Feather & Bone
If eggs benny and fry-ups are too heavy for you, perhaps consider a light brunch of fine cheese and wine at Feather & Bone’s cheese bar. Choose from cheese platters containing either three ($168) or five varieties ($228), or a charcuterie board ($178).
Feather & Bone are the exclusive importer of Rodolphe Le Meunier cheeses – the affineur is a rock star in cheese circles and in 2007 was named both the best cheesemonger in France and the world’s best cheesemonger by different organisations, a Meilleur Ouvrier de France. His Beurre de Baratte French butter is world renowned, and available as part of the cheese platters. Customers can also enjoy wine at $40 a glass from 8am-7pm, after which wine prices will start at $60.

The only thing better than normal brunch is an all-day brunch. Jaspas serves brunch grub all day, seven days a week. We particularly like the sound of the blueberry-filled three stack pancakes ($95), corn fritters with topping choices ($110), and the four egg omelette ($120). Some dishes are available in smaller kids serving sizes. There is also a good range of fresh fruit blends to choose from.

Japanese-American diner concept Cena has a laid-back vibe and communal outdoor seating perfect for chilling out and people watching. Stand out brunch options are eggs benny with crab ($100), Polish beans ($70), and salt beef & gherkin bagel ($60). For this month, you can upgrade your brunch set with a smoothie for an additional $50 or cocktail for $60; both options also come with a choice of tea or coffee. There are a wide range of drinks available, including the hard-to-find horchata ($30 to $40).
Cena also has a kids brunch menu with interesting dishes such as cha cha churros, green eggs + ham, and Krabby Patty (all $40). The restaurant also welcomes dogs, and does not force a 10 per cent service charge onto the bill.
8am-3pm. 9 Sha Tsui Path, Sai Kung Square, 2757 1020.
The Conservatory took over Grande’s old space earlier this year, and has since presented Sai Kung with a range of Mediterranean-inspired pan-Asian fare. Their plates are made for sharing, and the brunch menu is no exception. Boasting healthy cooking, there are several egg- and toast-based dishes to choose from, including three types of eggs benedict, a breakfast skillet ($118), and a berry-filled French toast ($78). There is also a kids brunch menu, with downsized portions of dippy soldiers or baby bruschetta (both $48).
