Tim Horton's/ My World

Coffee - A BIG part of my world

And Tim Horton's coffee is a big part of Ontario's world. It's the rare Ontario town that doesn't have a Tim Horton's. Sadly, East Gwillimbury is one of those towns.

But be still my heart! Mount Albert (one of East Gwillimbury's villages) is supposed to get one in 2009.

So next summer if you're heading up highway 48, look for this sign and stop in. I'll be the customer with the camera.

Mmmm. I'm a big coffee connoisseur, myself!

I'm looking forward to an Olive Garden restaurant opening up here, with strong hopes a Macaroni Grill will follow!

George said...

We don't have a Tim Horton's in the hills of Tennessee, but I've heard good things about it.

Jan said...

Tim Horton must be like Starbucks for Canada.

Gaelyn said...

Sure hope Tim's comes your way. Don't know what I'd do without my home brewed morning jolt. I even travel with an espresso pot.

Great post. It's obvious that you love this place very much.

Tranquility said...

Aaahh.... someone who shares my heart! In "My World" it's Dutch Brothers Coffee (or Starbucks, of course).

Carver said...

Coffee is a big part of my world too. I've never been to a Tim Horton's but if I find myself somewhere that has it, I'll definitely try it.

Reader Wil said...

As long as I have my cuppa... I can face the day! For British people "cuppa"is a cup of tea, for us it's a cup of coffee, stronger than the British people have. When I am in England I always drink tea.

EG: Thanks for the information on the special coffee shops of Ontario.

ChrisC and JonJ said...

We don't have one of those here in florida.Hmmmm....

Leanne said...

We definitely don't have Tim Hortin's here in Oz. However I will put it to memory just in case I am ever in Canada and need a good coffee.

Rob (Inukshuk Adventure) said...

Yay for Timmies! Double, double for me!

imac said...

And I'll be the other customer with the camera, lol, great post.

Sylvia K said...

We can't do without our coffee, can we! This is great! Thanks so much for posting.

gnometree said...

Coffee is very popular in Australia also, but mostly we buy our coffee from independant cafes. All the major cities have a smattering of Gloria Jeans, but as far as I know, Starbucks is only in Melbourne and Sydney and there is only one starbucks drive through!!

Louise said...

I was in Winnipeg last summer for my anniversary, and they are quite prevalent in Manitoba, too. I had caramel frappucino (sp?)-type thing. It was divine. (Way better than Starbucks!)

Janie said...

I guess this is the Starbucks of Canada? In my town, our choices are the local cafe or 7-11. Sigh.

ewok1993 said...

Is Tim Horton the Starbucks of Canada? I hope it's not as overpriced as their states counterpart.

Skies said...

I am now a coffee free person for months, but this one would surely tempt me. :(

ViennaDaily said...

I am no coffee lover, but I'd order anything else they have! lol....thanks for bringing this to here, never seen one yet! ;)

Guy D said...

Pretty much sums up all of Canada....lol. Great post!

Cheers!

I thought Timmy's was shutting down the drive thrus. Or maybe that was somebody trying to get them to shut down the drive thrus. I'm all about my coffee, but I'll go inside thanks. No point sitting outside running up the carbon bill while going nowhere.

Shammickite said...

A world without Timmy's is a world without paper cups blowing in the ditches.
And in answer to Jan... Timmy's is ten times better than Starbucks.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Never heard of it, but looks like they serve up a great cup of coffee. Our best cup of coffee here in the states is either McDonalds or Dunkin Donuts. Probably the later.

SandyCarlson said...

Bring on those beans! Very cool. I don't know where the nearest one of those is. I do know my trusty percolator means more to me than, well, a lot!

BJ Roan said...

I LOVE coffee. I can't imagine what I would do if I wasn't allowed to drink it anymore.

Wren said...

Do you know, I never heard of them before I moved to Michigan?

Sara G said...

I am not a coffee drinker, but Tim Horton's has yummy donuts and cookies!!
Take care and thanks for sharing your world with us!

FickleMinded said...

yay! we have Tim Hortons just around the corner, I can smell their fresh coffee from our deck. :)

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

I have a friend here from Nova Scotia and she has often mentioned Tim Horton's to me and how much she misses it!

Small City Scenes said...

Is it like Horton sees a Who? You will be the Who--with camera. MB

Marites said...

Coffee shops in my city is sprouting everywhere, it's getting me confused :) and they offer a lot of plus just to get customers like free WIFI, buy one-take one orders, free book readings and such. Life is good but all those need money so I just go there when I have extra.

Swarna said...

A warm cuppa, any time!
Have a good one!

Ann said...

No Tim Horton's In Singapore or New Zealand, though Star Bucks is every where.

One cappuccino please.

auringonkukka finland =) said...

great post!
have a nice week ;)

Kerri said...

I LOVE coffee....never had Tim Horton's before! I think the design on the cup is pretty awesome!!

see you there! said...

Tim Horton's huh? We both know I'm pretty faithful to my own brand Peets. If I ever get to Canada I might be willing to give Tim's coffee a whirl.

I'm a coffee person. It that anything like Starbucks? Do you guys have Starbucks up there?

mountain.mama said...

I would most definitely stop there if I were in your neck of the woods. Life is not worth living without coffee.

Ruth said...

What would we do without Timmies? I can walk to 4 different Tim Hortons from my house, all within 1 km. Steeped tea with milk and a bagel please!

Kathiesbirds said...

Oh Man, you've hit a soft spot with me! I love Tim Horton's! I could use a cafe Mocha right now and a walnut butter tart! Yum! No Tim's anywhere near Tucson I'm afraid but I can visit them when I go back east to Maine!

Neva said...

I know you will find this hard to believe...but there is a Tim Horton's in St. Albans, West Virginia, USA...I know as it is right up the street from my mom's house...I have even blogged it...I LOVE their coffee!!!
