Situated along Robertson Quay, Summerlong is a hot brunch spot; it’s always packed with customers on weekends. This could be due to the unpretentious beach vibes it radiates. The outdoor rattan settees are highly sought after, but if you and your girls prefer to seat indoors, the bar island gives a peek into the open kitchen.
