I've noticed that Victorians are snobs when it comes to coffee. I have to admit I am snob about a lot of things, but I am certainly not snobby about my coffee. More numerous are Starbucks than Tim Horton's in this city, on this island...that's for damn sure. Don't get me wrong, once to twice a week in Ontario was my average for driving out of my way and getting out of my car to go into a Starbucks and treat myself to my regular grande one pump skinny vanilla. I am certainly a coffee girl, and I can think of maybe one occasion ever, since I have been working, when I have not arrived at the office with a large double double from Tim's in my hand. Scoff at me if you will, but I love Tim Horton's coffee, and I am sure I always will. It was my routine every day in Ontario go go to Tim's once in the morning on the way to work, and I mean, I passed about ten (in one city) DIRECTLY on my way to work, and once during my lunch hour. If I was having a bad day, on my way home as well. I have to say I have a bit of a beef with the lack of Tim Horton's locations that I know of in the city of Victoria that have a drive thru. One. And it is VERY out of my way. I guess this Tim Horton's drive thru loving Ontario girl will have to change her ways, and stretch her pocketbook if she wants her daily caffeine fix!
Love of the coffee + this is why I don't want to go to Starbucks everyday!
