The Orange Thimble
From the people behind nearby gallery White Canvas, and proof that Tiong Bahru really is the city's coolest hood, is this charming cafe just behind Tiong Bahru Road. A great place for a casual coffee, the real standout is the freshly squeezed OJ. Food highlights include its Breakfast Burger and the BBC (bacon, brie and cranberry), and the overall vibe, with artworks adorning its wall and a nice open space out back, is delightfully easy-going. Cheaper coffee than 40 Hands, too.
