Brunch at Loysel's Toy.

Being a brunch person (and someone who always wakes up only in the afternoon during weekend) i was doing some research on brunch cafes and i came across Loysel's Toy as one of the recommended brunch places in SG, so i did a bit of research online on where exactly is the place, the must try food and lastly decided to check out the place myself!
 Loysel's Toy
66 Kampung Bugis
Tue - Fri: 09:00 - 18:00
Sat - Sun: 09:00 - 19:30
Loysel's Toy was not exactly the easiest place to find if you taking public transport. Nearest MRT station would be Lavender, exit at the ICA Building, turn right and follow route according to the map above - it's about a 10 mins walk.
Upon reaching, you will be greeted by this row of bicycles which is available for rental just in case you wish to burn off those calories before or after your meal. I wonder if anyone really rent those bicycles. They look quite vintage though.
A very simple menu on a clipboard. Not fanciful, very old school style. I like!
Assorted muffins, cakes and pastries are available at the counter! The price seem reasonable.
Ordered a hot chocolate which came with a weird latte art, or maybe it was unintentional.
We were quite spoilt for choice as we wanted to try the pancakes as well as the Egg Benedict so we decided to order 3 sets and share between both of us! The above is the Breakfast pancake ($11) Simple set with pancakes, scrambled eggs, chicken sausage and of cos the classic maple syrup that goes along with the pancakes. Quite worth it (:
Egg Ben on Toast with Bacon ($12)

Normally i have my classic Egg Ben with ham but this time, it's with bacon instead! Eggs were poached nicely and the hollandaise sauce was just nice. However, the portion was quite small but i guess that's the eggs ben standard size.
Egg Ben on Toast with smoked salmon and ham ($13)

You actually get to choose to have both bacon or both smoked salmon with eggs at $12 or like what Jiaqi ordered, 1 with smoked salmon, and 1 with ham at just additional $1 to get a taste how the dish goes with different kinds of meat.
Happy us with our portion of Eggs Benedict!

Overall i would say Loysel's Toy is a good place for brunch in terms of ambiance as wells as food wise. The food is good and the price is also reasonable. You can just simply have brunch, order a cup of their specialty coffee and spend your afternoon there with a few friends. I would definitely go back there one day to try the other items on their menu! :D
