they raise prices once a year.....so first raise by 6 cents, then raise by 8 cents. By this time next year, it will be raised by 10 cents.

Fo sho. This sucks, I remember when the price of a medium now got me a large coffee. Ah well. I'm still an addict/loyal customer.

I barely drink coffee. Like 3 or 4 times a year? I have tons of friends who can't live without it . Timmy's breakfast sandwich and their sandwiches are fuckin good though.

i hate to say it but mcdonalds snausage and egg sammich is definitely better. i hate the biscuit that timmys uses and the bagel isnt much better.

timmys lunch sammiches are alright but not great, especially for what they cost.

coffee ftw tho. but mcdonalds coffee actually is pretty alright too.

when i very rarely walk into a 'coffee shop' to grab a coffee and see all the trendy art fags lounging around, it makes me glad i got a real job. (and i dont mean students studying either)

+1 for McD's java, -1 to artsy losers (not real artists, though).

I quite like the biscuit Timmy's uses, but I much prefer the other bits from McDonald's. Actually, McD's Big Breakfast > everything else.

lol i remember i wanted to go into timmy's to get some coffee
and walked into a Starbucks

asked for a Large coffee black 2 sugars.

she replied, I'm sorry you have to put the sugar in for yourself.

i felt like a moron, blubbered an apology about thinking it was somewhere else and ran away.

I used to work at starbucks and was so happy I learned the Timmy's lingo from my small-town relatives so that when someone came in asking for a large canadian or double-double I knew to say "venti black coffee" or "venti coffee and cream and sugar are right behind you".

Some of my coworkers were kind of confused when we'd get people from back east. Always amused me.


Random funny story, I remember I was working one day with a coworker who had a strong canto accent and one of my thickly-accented mainland customers came in and tried to order a "tah dak" (tall dark) and my coworker had no idea what he was saying. I turned to my coworker and said "tall dark" and said to the customer "that'll be $1.66". Funny shit.

i hate when you get $1 bag of chips or chocolate bar, it ends up being 1.05 or something. then i end up getting 95 cents in change.

plus the tim hortons at sfu blowwwws. franchised by chartwell's. they work slower than other tim hortons. they charge you for debit card use, they don't accept credit card and no espresso machine.
