I work near the Waterworks Mall so I always hear some people rave about the cakes and baked goods they get there so I was surprised it wasn't added.

Everytime i go to Canada or New England i eat Breakfast and sometimes Lunch at Tim Hortons. There timbits are tasty i get a box of those. I like there soup in a bread bowl. I know people form the Burgh will fall in love with Tim Hortons. A Few months ago they opened some stores in NYC , so i no longer have to go to New England to get my fix.

Tim Horton's is quite a hang out in Canada. I visited them on a regular basis when I lived in Erie, not for their donuts, but for their great breakfast sandwiches and other sandwiches. Great coffee too!

My heart skipped a few beats when I saw the title of this post, because I've spoke with some of their members of district management trying to get an idea if they will establish themselves down here. We went to the first Paul McCartney show and was amazed when we saw them serving their coffee. Here's hoping we get a few down here.

There is no Tim Hortons in Weirton, WV. Tudor's Biscuit World is there, though. The closest Tim Hortons from Downtown are:

Steubenville, OH - I've been to this one. It's actually coupled with a Coldstone Creamery inside, as well.
Calcutta, OH
Wheeling, WV

I've been to many Tim's and they're decent...I'd be glad to see them make a [small] presence in Pittsburgh. They're just like any other chain of this type, though... Dunkin Donuts has more donut choices, Panera has more sandwich/soup choices, and Starbucks has more coffee choices.

I've always hoped Tim Horton's would come to Pittsburgh once I tried them when I went to Canada a few years ago. I always thought that if Tim Horton's could do well in Erie, Buffalo, and Columbus it would definitely do well in Pittsburgh. They should probably start advertising in the area now so that people who aren't familiar with the brand can learn about them.

What do you like from the Oakmont Bakery?

It makes no sense they're just now barely coming here. Tim Horton was a freaking Penguin! And a Hornet.

It's a chain restaurant...that happens to be from Canada. I would be more excited if Carl's Jr. were here instead of Hardee's.

I think I got a cake from there once. It was really good but I don't really go there since it's a fairly far drive from Lawrenceville when there are closer places.

Ah, Carl's Jr. IS Hardees. They are one and the same.
