Food: A truly gorgeous French-themed buffet, there’s a wide selection of options and lots of live cooking stations. It’s all set in the kitchen and so even the buffet food is fresh as can be. Don’t miss the room dedicated entirely to dessert.

The set up: With a contemporary and sleek decor and a soundtrack from a smooth jazz band, this is a sophisticated brunch, great to take your other half or parents to. Plus, the outdoor terrace with views of the creek marina is relaxed and romantic. NB: Traiteur’s brunch is closed until September 17, 2010.

Post-brunch plan: The Terrace Bar at the Park Hyatt is a lovely place to sip on post-brunch bevvies.
