Second Cup would have been my choice. But out of Tim's or Starbucks, I do prefer Starbucks. But I also sometimes just want a nice, soft, fattening donut, in which case I would choose Tim's. I am from Ontario.

do you take "I don't drink coffee at all" for an answer?

I hate Tim Hortons. Eating anything from TH leaves a weird aftertaste and makes me feel like garbage. The brown/beige colour scheme makes me want to puke, too. I don't go to Starbucks that often, but anything is better.

Tim Hortons is way better and much more affordable. Starbucks is expensive and they're coffee is bitter and unsatisfying. Tim's for me!!!!!!

Tim's has pretty much the worst tasting coffee out there. I mean their coffee tastes worse than what you can get at any local gas station.

Coffee is a very subjective thing when it comes to taste,some love it somewhere and hate it somewhere else, For you CTRE Tim's is the worst tasting coffee out there,doesnt mean its bad coffee its just not to your liking. I think its OK,personally my worst tasting coffee is anything thats served in those tiny white Styrofoam cups..

PS...CTRE try a soup instead next time you are at Tim's.

Tim is cool for that middle class community feeling.

But Starbucks is just down right strange. I feel embarrassed to even be in one. People that feel the need to go there really should seek therapy if you need to drink coffee in such a pretensious place just to have self esteem there is no hope for you.
