Crackerjack

Crackerjack's innovative spirit in its tipples is also evident in its breakfast menu - such as in the Bourbon Mashbill Grits (pictured above), a dish inspired by the recipe of Bourbon (mash bill is a mix of grains used to make the spirit) and featuring a creamy mixture of stone ground cornmeal, rye and barley, topped with smoked cheddar, crispy chicken skin and a 63-degree egg. Other inspired highlights include Horchata Pancakes with almond cinnamon whipped cream and agave nectar, as well as the Rich Hippie Granola with organic Dutch milk yoghurt, pomegranate, pineapple and pomelo. 

Available daily, 9 to 11am at Crackerjack. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/Crackerjacksg.

Clean eating doesn't have to be boring - as Kitchen by Food Rebel would have you know. Their hearty hot breakfasts of free-range eggs with spiced chickpeas, sauteed mushrooms, peppers with avocado and sourdough rye toast; buckwheat porridge with cashew butter; and an Aussie grass-fed steak are all big on flavours, but low on the processed ingredients (no hidden sugars, preservatives or chemicals are used). Go forth and indulge.

Available weekdays, 8 to 1130am. For more information, visit www.foodrebelsg.com.

Sarnies

Sarnies has been a firm favourite among the yuppie office crowd since its opening, and with good reason. Coffees are consistently excellent, while their fuss-free but hearty breakfast options like smoked salmon with cream cheese bagel, steak wrap with scrambled eggs and mushrooms, and Cocowhip soft serve breakfast bowl with vegan nut granola start the day on a great note. Just go in extra early or after 9am so you miss the morning crowds as the queues can get pretty daunting.

Available weekdays, 730 to 11am. For more information, visit www.sarniescafe.com

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But sometimes, it's all too easy to fall into the trap of just making do with a solitary banana (even if it's a proven mood booster) or forgoing the meal altogether when you're pressed for time in the office.

And that's a pity, because carving out time for a sit-down spread first thing on a weekday can be a great way to gather your thoughts and mentally prep yourself for the day ahead. Make your breakfast awesome and you could even be making your day.

Which is why we've put together these five CBD-based recommendations where you can get fabulously fed. Good vibes guaranteed.
