So, Tim Hortons is the first chain restaurant I’ve eaten at since moving to Michigan.  It’s a chain I had never heard of before coming here, so we decided to stop in for a quick lunch one day after a morning of shopping.  The chain is based in Canada getting their start in Ontario in 1964.  In 2000, they opened their 2000th store in Toronto, ON.  In the US, their stores are mostly in the northern and eastern part of the country….closest to Canada.

Tim Hortons is a coffee shop and bakery that serves a few sanwiches and soups.  When you walk in, your senses are assaulted (in a good way) by baked goods in glass cases right up front.  Since we were there for lunch, we somehow managed to not give in to desire and just got sandwiches.

I got the turkey bacon club on white and my girlfriend got the same, but on wheat bread.  The bread takes a quick ride through the toaster oven then is piled with turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mustard.  My g/f and I had totally different takes on the sandwich.  The bread was good.  The turkey was good and you could smell the bacon.  We both agreed there.  The mustard was a big point of difference for us.  I thought the neon yellow mustard was way too tangy and I really didn’t like it.  I ended up taking off the bottom piece of bread on both sides of the sandwich and eating the remianing half like an open faced sandwich.  My g/f totally disagreed with me and loved the mustard and thought that it made the sandwich stand out.  I’m kind of glad we both got the same thing just so you can see how different people view the same thing.

We grabbed our sandwiches to go so we wouldn’t be tempted by the sweet treats just inches from us.  The total for two sandwiches was $8 and it only took about 5 minutes from the time we walked in the door.

[…] the time we moved here, I reviewed the Tim Hortons on South Cedar (review HERE) in Lansing after we stopped for lunch.  The Tim Hortons in Holt is a new store even since that […]
