Loysel’s Toy Cafe

Loysel's Toy Flat White

Finally visited the much awaited Loysel’s Toy Cafe. If you’ve heard of Papa Palheta, you would know that they basically serve only coffee and sell coffee beans at their Bukit Timah Hooper Road hideout. Now, the same guys behind Papa Palheta have decided to grant us our wish, and voila, Papa Palheta’s new cafe Loysel’s Toy.

I think this must really be their marketing strategy, for they have chosen an even more ulu location for their cafe! I am 99.9% sure that there is NO WAY, anyone would chance upon Loysel’s Toy unless they were working in the exact same building that Loysel’s Toy is situated in. It’s close enough to Lavender MRT station, apparently only 7 minutes walk. Their backyard faces the Kallang River Park, but thanks to some really bushy hedges, they are hidden from view.

Despite that, there were quite a number of customers at Loysel’s Toy. All word of mouth from Papa Palheta fans I’m quite sure. That was how I found out too. The place is bright and cheery, and once again, reminds me of the cafes in foreign lands. They were also going for a sort of retro look, with interesting seat covers for their high chairs.

We only had flat whites today costing $4 each. As expected, it was of good standard, just like the ones you get at Papa Palheta. I hardly put any sugar in, which I take to be a mark of pretty good coffee.  Now that they are a full fledged cafe, they also serve a small selection of food items such as sandwiches, baked eggs, omelettes and muesli. I shall return again with the Partner to try out their sandwiches and more coffee soon.

    I live in Kallang, 5 mins walk from this place. Great food but LIMITED supply of food. Unless you plan to eat at 9.30am, whatever you want to eat will be sold out. The favourite saying here is ‘So sorry, thats sold out’. Scrambled eggs, Chicken sandwhich, Orange juice – sold out. Such a disappointing and frustrating experience. The muffins are to die for (when they’re not sold out…)

      Ah well, damned if they’re good and damned if they’re not. I guess coffee’s ultimately what they want to sell. Hope you have better luck next time. I’ve been too scared to go back too lest I meet with the same situation. Thanks for the tip on the muffins, may actually try to drive past in the morning to get some.
