Tim Hortons is the place to meet and catch up with friends and family. Tim Hortons is great because there is one in every airport—a fantastic place to stop for a last minute bite to eat before getting on the plane or a first stop when deplaning. I fondly remember picking up or dropping my dad at the airport, always stopping by Tim Hortons for a cup of coffee and a donut or muffin. It is at that airport Tim Hortons that we catch up and say our farewells.
One of the many Tim Hortons locations near my mom and brothers’ homes in Calgary is the one in Trans Canada Centre. I remember stopping in for a bagel or donut while doing some errands with my mom when I was younger. The thing about Tim Hortons is that they are consistant. You know you’ll get your lunch or snack items, and drinks the same way in each location. Each location has special memories associated with it though.
Greg and I stopped by the Trans Canada Centre Tim Hortons, a stand-alone coffee shop amongst a grocery store and a shopping strip with little stores of all kinds. We were in the middle of finding products for a renovation redecoration for my mom’s home, and wanted to stop in to Tim Hortons to discuss what we planned on doing for the rest of the project. We went to the location together.
Tim Hortons is all about options—yes, they’re known for their fresh coffee, always available, but did you know they also have a fantastic tea selection? On my most recent trip to Tim Hortons, Greg ordered a small coffee, and I ordered an English Breakfast tea. The tea was quite strong (I normally drink mine black, but most people have it with milk and sugar), so I asked the person behind the counter for some Equal to add just a bit of sweetness to my tea. Unfortunately, this sweetener wasn’t one of the ones they carried, so although Tim Hortons typically has a lot of choices on offer, the option of sweeteners is limited. I do love that a vegan like myself can get a bagel, or an oat cake cookie for something to snack on. This really helps when I am at an airport Tim Hortons on my way on a plane trip somewhere.
There were seasonal signs at this location—for Pumpkin Spice tea, muffins, donuts and Timbits.
I filled out a comment card asking to see more sweetener selections and also more vegan options. This is something that I try to do whenever I go out so that people know that vegan options are requested.
This location didn’t have Equal sweetener, just another brand and white sugar. At home, I like to have different options for my guests. I am quite particular when it comes to sweetener, and I know that others are as well.

You are so right, they are all about choices – right down to what kind of milk. They need to offer Equal as well! Great post!
thanks Tammi, I hope they start changing that—and eventually offer more sweetener options!
Yes, for sure! 🙂
