|Donut whine when you dine at Tim Hortons|
|When you go to any Timmies, you shouldn’t be whining
You know from the outset that it isn’t fine dining
But the doughnuts are fresh and the coffee is hot
Their breakfasts and lunches won’t cost you a lot
If you offer to treat me, I won’t be delcining 😉
I know that we usually post about restaurants and some might argue that Tim Hortons does not qualify on this count. Nevertheless, it is deeply ingrained into the fabric of Canadian society. Also, we are not food snobs and do occasionally indulge in the gooey treats that abound in calories.
Frankly, our main motivation for this review was the relatively recently introduced fruit smoothie (with or without yoghurt). On this particular visit, we tried our first one. The only slight negative was watching the shot of yoghurt being oozed out of a huge plastic bag into the cup before being blended. The end result, however was not at all unpleasant experience and I’m pretty sure that I’ll be back again for a repeat once the hot days of summer arrive.
I should also point out that I am happy to see the blueberry fritter make a reappearance at this particular location (Montreal Road at Sinclair in Beacon Hill). For some reason, it was taken out of the regular line-up for some time and I was concerned that one of my personal favourites was going to bite the dust.

|The doughnut, as we know and love, supposedly came to Manhattan (then still New Amsterdam) under the Dutch name of olykoeks–“oily cakes.”|
