  • Finally we came to the first location of “Tim Horton”! It’s so nice to see their history and memories. Miles Gilbert "Tim" Horton opened the first store to support his hockey salary in the off season, May 17, 1964. He died untimely death by drunken driving, aged 44. ***I wish this first location has Maple Dip Donuts all the time. My sister and friends from Japan LOVED it when they traveled Canada, so please!
  • I was excited to go to the original Tim Hortons, but was a bit let down by the sanitation of the building. The bathrooms were not stocked with toilet paper or soap, and the floor was wet. I couldn't find a table that was clean. There were crumbs or coffee marks on each table. And when I exited the building I stepped littered Tim Horton tea bags. They have a neat display upstairs of the history of Tim Hortons , other than that there was nothing spectacular about this visit.
  • Must go here if you are a fan of Tim’s!!! They have an awesome little museum on the upper level displaying lots of cool vintage and retro artifacts and displays sorted by decade! Very cool memorabilia, I loved seeing it. It was exciting seeing old roll up the rim cups I remember seeing back in the days! And the old treats they used to have, bring back the “butterfly”! And a statue outside depicting Tim Horton in his hockey attire! Aside from this being a very cool location to visit, it’s still a Timmies at the end of the day, so you know I got my coffee on!
  • Haven’t been in Tim Hortons #1 store in a very long time. Took the time to have a good look at the museum section and was very impressed…a great homage to Tim Horton. What was a true disappointment was that this beautiful new building was filthy. We were there just after 1pm on a Tuesday. Hardly anyone there, but there wasn’t a clean table in the place, the floors looked like they hadn’t been swept in days, let alone washed. The staircase up to the second floor needed a good sweep, the clear fibreglass sides and railings hadn’t seen soap and water in a while. Considering this should be your flagship store, someone should be taking charge to keeping it pristine. The food was fine, coffee always good but hey! cleanliness is important. It is such a shame that you leave there wondering what the kitchen must look like when you see the public areas.
  • Great experience to see all things about Tim Horton’s and how the restaurant was originally. The different donuts looked very tasty as well as the different mug designs. People should really see the restaurant’s humble beginnings. Learn about the business and its creative changes over time.
