Why is it that you can't eat just ONE Timbit when someone brings them to work?
I've had to cut myself off althogether since like last summer.
If you even have one, it's just downhill from there.

Damn you Timbits.

why is tim horton's virtually non-existent in downtown toronto? you can't throw a stone in any direction without hitting one here in waterloo.

Because of the proliferation of Coffee Times...

Yes, there are an abundance of Timmy's outside of the urban sprawl--in my small northern town there's 2! Timmy's and Country Style's are much harder come by in the city, not that Country Style really compares to the habit-forming wonder of Timmy's. Luckily there is one close to my work--three doors down from the Starfucks which I will attempt to never enter!

I know, but it doesn't make any sense considering Tim's strangehold in Canada and the fact that Coffee Time is closing like half its stores...

Actually, Tim Hortons must abide by special rules in the Core of Toronto. I actually asked a the City Planner of Toronto.

Tim Hortons May only be on a street where there is no parking in sight, it may not have a drive through.

The reasons apparently is because it would cause to much traffic. They would block off like 2 city blocks with a line up to the drivethrough.

There is a Timmy's on Bay and Bloor close to where I live... for a few months they posted a parking cop right there to ticket everyone who run in with their Hazard Lights on.

there is a timmy's on bay just south of bloor, on yonge just north of bloor, and right beside the police station (big surprise) on dundas at university (nice when walking home form clubland).

there is also a tim hortons kiosk in the MedSci building on campus at u of t.

off the top of my head that's all i know. but that stuff about the zoning sounds plausible.

i work and used to live around the corner from that timmy's and there are cops in there all the time. it's ridiculous, it feels like you can't walk in without having one stroll in right behind you. and they never, ever pay for what they get. not to mention the endless line of cabs stopped out front.

&lt;--- more than once stood in line behind a cop at timmy's and comtemplated grabbing their gun just to get to the front of the line.

^^^ it doesn't have anything to do with them 'not paying'.. places like tim horton's refuse to take payment from police officers.. they are happy to be recieving the protection of the police like we all should be.

for someone that doesn't know that, it may seem that the officers are just taking the coffee without offering money. But I'm positive that it's a matter of being refused so many times, that they just take for granted that their coffee's are free.

yes - this is essentially why they get coffee for free. considering that a lot of donut shops are open 24 hrs and sometimes isolated it would be a perfect place to hit up if you were so inclined. knowing that coffee shops are a cop-haven will deter would be thieves.

same goes for programs that are set up to bring cops into convenience stores to make their calls into the office.

i don't know anything about tim horton's policy, i just know it's tradition because it used to be that late night donut places were easy targets for armed robbers, having the cops drop by for a donut meant no robbers.

i jsut want my coffee for free too. i promise to never rob the place and throw my scalding coffee on any robbers i ever see.

There's also a Tim Horton's on Victoria Street, just north of Dundas (Ryerson campus), and also one at Yonge/Adelaide (or is it Richmond) beside the Taco Bell.
