The Orange Thimble – a café with an art twist

Hello peeps!

So I was in the Tiong Bahru area, wandering street after street, thinking of where to have dinner. After much thought, we finally decided on this – The Orange Thimble.

The Orange Thimble – where art meets café.

Beautiful drawing ♡

Simplistic decor with a cozy feel, yet still pretty spacious,  that makes one not only comfortable but also hits you with waves of nostalgia. Sofas, chairs, cushioned chairs – take your pick. And while sitting there, take a look at the art hanging on the wall. Beautiful.

Now, on with the food….

Caramel Macchiato (regular – i.e. hot) – $5.50

Caramel Macchiato ♡

The caramel blended so well that it gave a sweet tinge to the otherwise bitter coffee. Smooth and light.
The gem biscuits (reminiscence of childhood days…) was a delightful addition as well.

Iced Caramel Macchiato$7.50

Doesn’t suit my taste. The ice may have also diluted the flavor a bit…
Bit on the bitter side this one which was kinda surprising since we saw a layer of sugar syrup settled at the bottom of the cup when we first got it…

Smoked Salmon Baguette$10.90

Ahhh fresh baguette, and even more importantly – fresh smoked salmon. Lovely combination and pretty light too. Thumbs up!

Beef Shepherd’s Pie$9.90

One of the better shepherd’s pie I’ve tasted. The top potato part was not overbaked which is great. Every mouthful was filled with beef and mushroom and some potato chunks here and there in the mash which I love.

It’s a good place to relax. Be it catching up with friends or just sipping coffee reading a book.
I saw ice creams & cakes/desserts displayed but have yet tried it. I’d prolly drop by another day to try those tempting yummies.

If you’re around Tiong Bahru, why not pop by for a visit?

The Orange Thimble is located at:
56 Eng Hoon Street #01-68,
Singapore 160056
