The Orange Thimble was situated next to the famous Tiong Bahru Bakery and had significantly lesser crowd in there compared to the latter one. Each had their own uniqueness but if you are more into small secluded areas where you can have a more intimate or private chat with your friend, I'd recommend you to visit The Orange Thimble.
The cafe is sectioned into five areas, but seats are pretty limited in each space considering the cafe is split into five areas in a tiny space. When my friend and I were there it was off lunch time and we were able to explore the cafe to our pleasure. There are some cakes served and you can buy chocolates weighing by grams as well. As we were pretty full from our previous cafe stop, we got ourselves the salted caramel ice cream which was recommended by the staff.
It was an art-space-slash-cafe thus paintings hung up around the cafe was inevitable. They were all scenery of the Tiong Bahru district in distorted yet colourful paintings. Christmas season is here and everywhere in Singapore you'll see decorations put up and hear the jolly rhymes of the Christmas songs. Are you excited for Christmas? I sure do as I sing 'I'll be home for Christmas'
