This is a very nice looking coffee shop on the corner of King and Charlotte Streets. The coffee is decent and the prices are reasonable. It is part of a Canadian chain with multiple locations throughout Ontario and a handful of shops in other provinces (Quebec, Maritimes, Manitoba and Alberta) as well as one place in the US (Cleveland Hopkins...

Timothy's in the Manulife Centre on the main floor under the cinema is fantastic. The staff are always friendly and attentive. It is my local cafe and Goran, Lucy and Samira always remember my order and start making it before I pay for it. They have amazing Date Squares (large and small) as well as a host of other fresh...

Staff is always a bit friendlier here than other coffee shops I find. It may be because they are franchised and owner operated.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
