The coffe was great, as well as the space. Many different themes around different seating places. My table was dirty though and noone came to clean it after.

I tried the shepherd's pie this time. SGD 9.90. I think overall it's not bad but then the pie itself is missing the Worcestershire sauce and tomato. I couldn't taste these flavors at all. The mashed potato tasted more like bread because of the texture....More

Went to this cafe for an afternoon tea to get work done. Bought a $7 iced coffee (yes totally overpriced). Coffee was ok but definitely not worth $7, Starbucks frappucinos are larger and don't even cost as much. Place was mainly filled with expats/tourists when...More

Sitting right next to Tiong Bahru Bakery, the Orange Thimble holds its own in terms of proving a good coffee experience. They do have a small following and a smattering of people who come in if the queue next door becomes quite unacceptable. We were...More

The service improved quite a lot from the last time I went (in Mar maybe). The people who served me were polite and approachable. Together with my friend, we willingly ordered lattes, Kapitan and Rendang Stew with Rice as well as the Crumble Top Cake(?),...More

The service staff was very polite and approachable. Ordered a Portobello sandwich but they ran out, so changed to grilled chicken. Food was good.

Nice little restaurant close to Tiong Bahru Market. Not to noisy, good for a quiet nice meal. Decor is minimal, nice smooth music in the background. My smoked salmon sandwich was fresh and sumptuous. Overall a good place for a pleasant meal.

Tiong Bahru
Home to both local families and transient expats,
Tiong Bahru is a fascinating mix of tradition and
youthful creativity. Its status as a conservation area
ensures that this little hub has charm and heritage on
display at every corner, while the 1930s art deco
architecture provides a glimpse of days gone by. Stock
up on fresh tropical fruits at the wet market, browse
high quality literature and children’s books, shop for
