If you’ve ever been to the United States or Canada, you might have seen (or even tried) this popular coffee called Tim Hortons. They’re best known for their vanilla lattes, iced cappuccino, Timbits, and more!
Good news is, they’ve finally opened a store in Singapore! Looks like I have a new place to get my coffee fix now.
Tim Hortons is no stranger to the coffee scene, especially since they have over 5,700 stores under their belt.
The first outlet in Singapore is located in VivoCity and will offer distinctly local offerings like Iced Oolong Tea Refreshers (from S$5.50) and my personal favourite, the Ondeh Ondeh Cake (S$7.90 per slice).
Also exclusive to Singapore (yay us!) are the Sourdough melts which come in six flavours like Pesto Chicken Mozzarella (S$9.90), Triple Cheese and Caramelised Onions (S$8.90), Maple Glazed Chicken Ham and Cheese (S$9.90) and Truffle Egg Mayo Cheese (S$8.90).
These aren’t your regular cafe sandwiches — the sourdough buns are coated with cheddar cheese and then toasted to a crisp before being stuffed with gooey mozzarella cheese —- super cheesy and super yummy!
You definitely must try the Triple Cheese and Caramelised Onions. The cheese really makes the sandwich super cheesy and savoury while the caramelised onions added a touch of sweetness. Every bite was so flavourful, I was tempted to get seconds.
Drinks-wise, you can find your quintessential cafe coffees like flavoured lattes (from S$6), freshly brewed coffee (from S$6), as well as popular Tim Hortons drinks like Salted Caramel Iced Capp (S$7), Maple Cinnamon Latte (S$7), and Belgian Chocolate (S$7).
It was a tough choice choosing my favourite drink but I’d probably have to go with the maple cinnamon latte. It was milky, lightly sweet, and very aromatic. We reckon this would be super soothing on a cold rainy day, and (dare I say) a more enjoyable alternative to the pumpkin spice latte.
We tried the wildly popular Birthday Cake Timbits (S$1.50) and having tried it, I can definitely see why it is so popular. It is generously coated in sprinkles which adds a touch of crunch and sweetness to the mix. Other flavours include cinnamon and sugar and the original glaze.
We tried also the Boston Cream donut (S$3.50) that was overflowing with custard cream. The chocolate fondant is super decadent and a little on the sweeter side. But my personal favourite was the Yuzu Lemon Cream (S$4.50). The cream was tangy and sour, while the donut was coated in sugar to balance out the flavours. Other flavours include the Strawberry Belgian White Chocolate, Maple Salted Caramel, and Belgian Dark Chocolate.
Tim Hortons officially opens on 17 November 2023, so save the date and hurry down to grab a cup of delicious coffee and some freshly baked goods!
Oh and Tim Hortons is currently having an opening special where you get to enjoy six months of free regular Cafe Latte if you’re among the first 100 guests daily from 17 to 19 November! Don’t say bojio.
