Loysel's Toy, part of the Papa Palheta chain, is tucked away in a nondescript building in the Lavender area, near the Kallang River.
Indoor seating is limited, so expect to sit outside at peak hours on weekends. There isn't much ambience, since you're literally sitting in a void deck-like area, amidst cyclists or noisy families.
The coffee - a latte and a flat white - was pretty good, but not worth a special trip there, at least not in my opinion. I think I prefer Jewel or Kith's coffee.
As far as the food goes, the menu is quite limited but it was pretty decent. The full breakfast featured some pretty good sausages, and surprisingly good scrambled eggs.
After the disappointing pineapple tarte tatin at Open Door Policy, I ordered the pancakes with grilled pineapple and bacon, and was finally satisfied. The pancakes were nice and fluffy, and the pineapple was at least properly caramelised.
We wouldn't come here all the way just for coffee/brunch (Crawford bak chor mee is another story, though!), but if we happen to be in the area anyway, it's a nice quaint little brunch spot.
Go for the location and coffee. The food's pretty ordinary.
