Welcome to New York Timmy Ho!
Non-stop on the news this morning was talk of the Canadian based coffee chain Tim Horton's opening up in NYC! As your go to woman for all things chain, I had to go to one this morning to see what all the fuss was about. I brought my new co-worker Kelly along for the ride. Little did I know, she was a Tim Horton's expert. She was talking about their sandwiches, special names for things, etc. She got an iced cappuccino which is actually frozen. It turns out they were free, so I got one too! It was pretty good, I still much prefer Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, but it is nice to have another option for coffee in Manhattan. You can tell Tim Horton just really wants to beat up Dunkin Donuts. Really, they are both pretty similar. I am not sure which one I like better. My allegiance is with Dunkin I guess. I have too many memories to just turn my back on them.
I am excited to try more stuff at Tim Horton's though like their soups and sandwiches. I tried some sort of Apple Fritter Donut thing and it was rather delicious. I also want to sample all of their iced coffee flavors like Mint and Cinnamon Bun. I tried to today, but they weren't ready yet.
