“better than DD except for the coffee”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you are ever looking for a Dunkin Donut and see a Tim Hortons be sure to stop. food is good any time of the day. better more varied offerings. The coffee while good, I still prefer DD coffee
Also service is much friendlier and is cleaner overall than DD.

“Not Service Oriented”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The quality of Tim Horton's coffee is as good as any other. One can buy decent coffee in many places these days. The choice of where to make this purchase is based on service quality.

Why is it impossible to dissolve sweetener in hot coffee before adding it to ice coffee? It seems to be a simple request that is greeted with "We are not allowed to do that." This has happened to me on more than one occasion with several different clerks. This lack of service is astonishing.

My experience would indicate that Tim Horton's would benefit from self-service rather than poor service with the audacity of a tip jar. This low quality customer experience combined with the high prices will keep me away.

“No flys in the doughnuts”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The coffee donuts and sandwiches are good. The DD chain should be avoided in most places. TH has good deals on iced coffee and the donuts are much fresher than DD. The staff can speak English and will remember your order. At DD the English as a second language staff generally do a better job than the locals.

“must be your first choice”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

when you see this name 'Tim Hortons' do not think twice, just go in and enjoy a wide range of coffee and bakeries...take a seat and start your journey in the world of a delicate taste..
