Sesame Street Character Breakfast at Universal Studios Singapore

Sesame Street Character Breakfast at Universal Studios Singapore - Signage at park entrance

Sesame Street Character Breakfast is part of the Sesame Street experience at Universal Studios Singapore. Available from late 2012, this premium add-on allows park guests to enjoy a hearty breakfast at Loui’s NY Pizza Parlor and meet characters from Sesame Street.

This is different from the previous Breakfast with the Stars which was held at Mel’s Drive-In.

Let’s have a tour of the experience!

Breakfast guests get to enter the park from 9am. This is a very nice perk because guests get to see the operations crew getting the park ready for guests.

So what’s for breakfast?

It’s mostly western fare, with some dim sum (shaumai and pau). There’s a great assortment of cookies, cereal and sweet desserts. For the mains, standard breakfast fare of sausages, cold cuts, bread (toast and rolls) and waffles. Spaghetti with meatballs is also served, linking to Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase.

For beverages, there’s coffee, tea, fresh milk and orange juice.

I’m quite surprised at the amount of sweet treats. So much sugary goodness for breakfast.

There’s of course, an omelette bar.

Now then, what about the Sesame Street characters?

Sesame Street Character Breakfast at Universal Studios Singapore - Cookie Monster

Several characters appear during breakfast. I’ve seen four: Cookie Monster, Abby, Elmo and Oscar. I found the characters to be quite disruptive because I’ve seen guests pausing their meals and making their way to characters the moment they walk into the restaurant. It can mean a very rushed and hectic breakfast experience. The children may be running to their favourite characters but right behind them: their parents with cameras.

Review

While an equally fulfilling (and much healthier) breakfast for the whole family costs a lot less, Sesame Street Character Breakfast offers a unique experience that will charm children and fans of Sesame Street. As the cost is rather high (imagine how much a family with a five would need to pay, on top of park admission), I would think that the experience will be reserved for special occasions, such as birthdays and celebrations.

Breakfast guests enjoy a more exclusive time with characters (much shorter queue than the norm) and breakfast dining for two hours. The wristbands given to breakfast guests offer Universal Express access to Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase in the morning, which is a great way to kick-start a day of adventure at Universal Studios Singapore.

    Nice. Breakfast with the Sesame Street characters must have been so fun.

    So what exactly was on the menu? Was it a good full breakfast?

    Also, I’m an ageing urm.. one year shy of 40years old adult male. How will that be so odd if I were to go for this breakfast, supposedly packed with children and their parents?

      Hi KM,

      The Character Breakfast buffet menu may change – but it’s a fairly adequate, albeit standard spread as I’ve mentioned in this entry. In my opinion, there’s a lot of sweet and fried foods to cater to the kids. I stayed to the salad bar and cold cuts. If you love sweet stuff, the dessert shelf has, I believe, all of the park’s Sesame Street themed cupcakes and brownies. It’ll be quite a delight to see the full set on a plate (and of course, eat them all later!)

      While the restaurant was packed with children, there was quite a number of adults. I don’t think it’ll be odd, although the ambiance – full of screaming and shouting children – might be a disruptive breakfast for some (at least, that’s what I observed from the facial expressions of some adult guests).

        Buffet breakfast sounds nice. It’s not cheap, but the experience should be very different from other breakfast buffets that cost in the same region.

        Your advice regarding children is a big turn-off. Maybe the organisers should have a monthly, adults-only buffet breakfast
