Back for more good food and drinks

This quaint, quiet little cafe sits silently by the river, bringing to its patrons river breezes and lip-smacking good food and coffee - and the best thing is now it opens daily (even Mondays as well). The dim lighting is offset by the bright sun rays coming in through the generous glass windows, and by lunchtime this lovely little dinery is filled up with people indoors and outdoors. I still like its rustic, hipster vibes and friendly service.

Anyway, the famous Lemon Tart (SGD$5.00) won hands down, with fluffy yet solid crust, sweet buttery taste on its own, and the zesty lemon custard was lovely with the right notes of sweet and sour blended into one. I loved the light sugar dusting atop the citrusy delicacy as well.

*Sidney had the Beefy Burger (SGD$16.00) - rib eye steaks with tomato, Arugula (rocket salad) and Hollandaise. He was disappointed with the bun - the toasted ones with sesame seeds would have fared better. The beef patty whilst containing a nice smokey hint to its flavor, was a little dry and bland.

I had the Caesar Salad with Prawns (SGD$10.00) - comprising of fresh Romaine lettuce, croutons, poached eggs, cheese powder and succulent, bouncy prawns. I guess not many people could get a Caesar Salad wrong - hence I did enjoy the freshly tossed salad here, especially paired with my favorite seafood (prawns) to add a seaworthy sweetness to the flavor.

Great coffee and love the al fresco setting

Review first appears here on CityNomads.com....   Granted I am a little biased as I literally live around 300m from Loysel's (lucky for me!), but nonetheless, this place makes the top 10 pretty comfortably. The coffee here is excellent, as are their yummy cakes and super affordable brunch menu. Add that the super chilled al fresco section by Kallang river and you have a winning location. Also, it's only of the few plces that actually has the cortado coffee on it's menu (my fave).

Laid back

I consider this quaint cafe one of the pioneers that kicked start the cafe-hopping trend since 3 years ago. Definitely had good coffee and decent cake to pass time, and gets quite packed during the weekends.

Hope it stays true to providing good coffee. Deviation to all-day breakfast seems so-so compared to other specialized breakfast places, so don't get your hopes up for the breakfast

Worst breakfast in 6 years

Whoever thinks it's ok to serve dry shriveled, reheated mushrooms with a breakfast dish needs a few lessons in hospitality. When I asked the waitress (who was more interested in her phone) when the mushrooms were cooked, she didn't know. There should only be one answer for this and that is they were freshly cooked. She came back to tell me they were hooked last night. They were so dry and stuck together I can't believe anyone with any kitchen cred could serve them. The poached

Loysels Toy - ambience and taste

Been there once, back there twice. This quaint little cafe is located by the Crawford River, in a lone building that no one would expect would house a lovely cafe in its premises. But yes, we are talking about Loysel's Toys (the Coffee Crafters) located at 66 Kampong Bugis #01-01 Sam Tat Building, Singapore 338987 and the number is 6292 2306.   This place is perfect for anyone who is seeking for a serene, casual and relaxing setting to chill out, catch up or simply chow on light delicacies over good coffee. There is an almost non-pretentious air about this place, and they serve savoury food such as sandwiches and roast chicken here as well as sweet pastries like croissants, muffins and cakes.   I had the Soy Mocha that I had loved so much during my last visit. I had nearly forgotten about it because my preferred coffee lately is usually Cappuccino, but being here reminded me of my favorite Soy Mocha. The steamy hot of caffeine here is rich in coffee's aroma and redolent of chocolate's sweetness; the hint of soy gave a smoothness to the coffee, heightening its sensation.   I paired the coffee with this pretty little thing - Elderberry Yogurt Muffin. I had been debating between the gigantic Almond Croissant, Lemon Tart or another cake when I saw this. The word "yogurt" immediately had me drawn, and I chose this. The first bite was heavenly - sweet, but with delectable hints of berries. The texture was a solid flufiness, and the entire thing was not too flakey or sweet. I thought this was a really perfect dessert / muffin. Note that I am usually not a muffin fan.   For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/03/tea-break-at-loysels-toys-cafe.html
