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.

Good coffee, Stingy Big L Breakfast

Coffee is great. The Big L Breakfast is however disappointingly measly and hardly hearty, being the most expensive item on the menu. Bread being the most basic and primary ingredient of any breakfast is only one half slice of bread, which is hardly sufficient to mop up the eggs and other ingredients on the plate. And a request for more bread will cost an additional $1 per half slice. The bread is claimed to be special but I rather have normal well toasted bread. In any European restaurants, bread would have been given for for free. Happy with the great coffee but disappointed by the stingy breakfast.

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).
