As a regular at Starbucks, I've always heard my Canadian friends say "you have to try Tim Hortons"!! So on my recent trip to halifax I decided that I'll give it a shot.. I went to several of the Tim Hortons along my trip and I wasn't quite pleased... the staff that worked at the square one mall in Mississauga... More

If you want a quick breakfast you cannot beat Tim Hortons. Great coffee and teas, together with lovely oat cereal with maple syrup or berries.

Always a pleasure to visit this outlet and have you daily caffeine dose!!! Enjoyed every visit, which I used to do almost on a daily basis during my week-long stay in Halifax

The breakfast sandwiches were tasty and the coffee good, all at a low price. But you do have to stand in line and it can take a while to get your food, as well as find an empty table.

We had to get a quick lunch, to maximize our sightseeing excursion time. We got chicken wraps and blueberry/basil lemonade that were both delicious! The service was pretty quick and we got there in good time, no line. As soon as we'd sat down to eat, we saw a line of about 8-10 had formed.

Wonderful coffee and pecan and maple syrup pastries to die for! First place to go every morning for sweet or savoury breakfast.

Typical Tim's liked the variety although I noticed that prices were somewhat inflated. Opened late and easily accessible from the Hotel. Just turn left as you exit the Hotel and your a block away.

As Americans we had heard of Tim Hortons from Canadian friends and were looking forward to checking it out on our trip to Nova Scotia. I can say that it was ok but it was certainly no Krispy Kreme by a long shot. Tim Hortons does offer other things than doughnuts and they all seemed to be busy when we... More
