When you’re talking family-friendly, Marché has to be on the list. If you’ve lived in Singapore more than a few days, chances are you’ve already eaten at Marché. From the fresh hand pressed Juices to Salads, Sandwiches, Soups and Gourmet Pizzas, vegetarians have a lot to choose from – we specially love the savoury crepes. Or maybe we love the sweet crepes more. Kids can enjoy one free Picky Kids Meal with a minimum spend of S$60 in a single receipt and it includes a choice of drink, main course and dessert. Marché Mövenpick 313@somerset, Suntec City and VivoCity offer indoor kids play area, high chairs and Brio table (not available at 313@somerset).

Sabio By The Sea
A great Tapas Bar, what’s not to like about Sabio By The Sea. It offers little for vegetarians but whatever it does is delicious. With ample space to run around, the kids can have a ball at the deck. It has a bouncy castle everyday where the kids can have endless fun.

French-Mediterranean cuisine at its best, the highlight is the Vegetarian A La Carte Menu and the Vegetarian Dinner Tasting Menu. Apart from the food, the inimitable Flower Dome in the Gardens by the Bay is an experience in itself, that will keep the kids busy.

District 10 Restaurant & Bar at UE Square
If not for the food, you will surely want to go here for the Bouncy castle (on weekends and public holidays) that is just next to your table when you dine outdoors. We’ve not eaten here much, but we’ve gone a couple of times for the unbeatable combination of bouncy and ice-cold brew.

Boomarang at Robertson Quay
With more than a few vegetarian menu options and a Kids Little Tackers Menu, this authentic Australian cuisine café, bar & bistro serves good food.

On Sentosa’s Siloso Beach, Coastes exudes a rustic beach vibe with some vegetarian food on offer. Where it lacks in variety of vegetarian food, it makes up for in terms of the beach access to adults and kids. For egg-eaters, there are few more options, apart from the vegetarian ones, on the menu. While not a top-choice for vegetarians, with sun-beds and a beach bar, the kid friendly amenities do make it an attractive option for families though.
