Loysel’s Toy is well-known among the local caffeine addicts, and, without a doubt, serves one of the best coffee in Singapore. I had toast to go along my usual order of flat white. After permeating my taste buds with several of the so-called art-is-anal coffee I recently had, I got my satisfaction at last. I mean, at the very least I can taste the shot of espresso in this one.
Between the two Papa Palheta permanent coffee shops, Loysel’s Toy is actually the most accessible. Just a short walk from Lavender MRT Station, and has ample parking on both the Lavender side and the Kallang side. The overall ambience, to me, is better too. Being surrounded by a park and a river/longkang, it is overall more chill and less claustrophobic than Chye Seng Huat Hardware (CSHH).
Recommendation: I am not saying this happened to me but, if, by any chance, you are supposed to collect your passport at ICA but forgot to make an appointment AND your NRIC, this is the best time to head over to Loysel’s Toy and calm yourself with a shot of espresso.
