The Overview

Younger sister to cult roaster Papa Palheta, Loysel's Toy—named after a 19th century Frenchman who invented the commercial espresso machine—is quirky but serious about its beans. Its obscure location—in a renovated warehouse, a 10-minute walk from the nearest MRT station—hasn't deterred a loyal following of fans, ranging from iPhone-toting hipsters to moms with strollers, from arriving in droves for their caffeine fix. The high-ceilinged interior is appointed with a gleaming Synesso Cyncra espresso machine, an elegant gold-and-black roaster and paper bags stuffed with house-roasted beans for sale. Beside espresso drinks made from its signature Terra Firma blend, this store also offers filtered sets like Brewed Otherwise (single-origin coffee of the day brewed using siphon and French press) for the purists. To best enjoy the laid-back charm, sit in the leafy courtyard and order a yummy scrambled egg toast to go with your coffee.
