Best of Coffee

Nothing says “Good morning Toronto!” like a good ol’ large double double Tim’s! OK, so it’s a pretty plain Jane version of the fancy-schmancy Starbucks offerings, but a Canadian icon and certainly a Toronto landmark nonetheless.

When we lived in the US, my husband and I would beeline to the nearest Tim Hortons (us locals endearingly refer to it simply as Tim’s) the second we crossed the border during our numerous trips home to visit family.

And now with Wendy’s International recent announcement of Tim’s going IPO, there just might be some good cash involved here. Ain’t coffee sweet!

    i wouldn’t say that Timmies is a TO icon but more a Canadian icon. If there was a famous Tim’s outlet that everyone across the country talked about then i might be swayed.

    i believe tim’s does what no american chain does for coffee — brings good swilling of coffee to the masses, not just foamy latte drinking types.

    It is most certainly a Canadian icon. Being from Canada, but living in Detroit, I was so excited to do a cross-country rail trip to Vancouver from Windsor. There is not a single Timmy’s along the way. I figured Vancouver city had to have some . . . nope, Starbucks city . . . there are two Tim Horton’s in that city. They are starting to represent in the suburbs of Detroit however.
