Agreed 111%.

The French Onion Soup is only good at some locations. Most of them have do a crappy job of making it.

Cost of material (ingredients), shipping, and labour are increasing. It makes sense, even though it sucks, that prices are rising.

fair enough, my bad then. anyways, like mentioned in this thread, mcd's raises their prices more often and by a larger margin than timmies. example, filet o fish used to be $2.69 for the sandwich alone, today (when on regular price) it's $3.99. fries and coke have also steadily increased.

Remember Tim Hortons raised prices, but unannounced, when HST was implemented as well.

I'm fine because I don't drink coffee. I think it's the biggest waste of money but to each their own.

It's fine if you do not like coffee, but why do you think it's the biggest waste of money? Or is it because you don't think it's worth $1.50?

On occasion I like the taste of it. I don't drink it every day, but some days where I have early morning classes a nice cup of joe really wakes me up.

Along with the change in the cup sizes the price i guess have adjusted accordingly. The large french vanilla use to cost 2.15 with the old cup sizes now it costs 2.45 with the larger size. not gonna complain cause this cup is huge..lol

The quality of Tim Horton's coffee and baked goods began declining and prices began steadily rising nearly a decade ago. Today: the quality of McDonald's coffee is better for a comparable price and the quality of Starbucks is on another level for a little higher price. And, Starbucks doesn't strive to give its jobs all to temporary workers, which I appreciate and is apparent in the service. So, I've switched to Starbucks for my morning coffee.
