Review: The Orange Thimble

Another indie cafe that had sprouted in the Tiong Bahru area over the last year is The Orange Thimble.

It differentiates by combining an art gallery of sort with a cafe. I like its vibe; cosy, with a classic laid back feel. More importantly, I find the coffee isn't too bad and there is a small but selective menu catering to different cravings.

It was rather amusing to see them serve two little 'jewel' biscuits alongside with the coffee.  Nostalgia overcame me.  I used to eat these biscuits when I was a kid.  I would always eat the bottom biscuit first, before savouring the icing 'gem' afterwards.  But now, as an adult, I find myself eating the icing bit first, biscuit second.  How do you eat your jewel biscuits?
