I can't think of a worse Timmy's. Bare bones takeout now, no seating, no nothing. Servers pleasant enough but poorly trained and not familiar with the types of coffees and sandwiches. Napkin box empty, no condiments, long line ups. They have the market cornered with this well placed location; I'm sure profits are up as service is down. Give us... More

They say when in Canada try Tom Horton's coffee. Well, I did and am not overly impress. I had a cup of the Original blend. I thought is was on par with other premium chain coffee shops. I'm not saying, the coffee is not good just that it doesn't stand out against the others. The same. On the other hand... More

The location is ideal, right downtown, in front of the KROC centre. They used to have a nice seating area but the renovated and now you pretty much only have the drive thru the sitting area is so small. But the quality of beverages and eats is the same as all Timmy.

We visited Kingston two years ago and appreciated having Tim's in the heart of downtown, especially since there were few "fast food" options. Very disappointed to see that it is not a sitdown restaurant now. Staff very disorganized and not helpful

A place I recently had breakfast on a regular basis during a 2 week visit to Canada. On the mornings I went, I, and several other Brits arrived generally around 5am and order breakfast and a take away lunch. Each time we were served quickly by vwery friendly staff. Highly recommneded for anyone wanting a fast-food breakfast.

Typical Tim Hortons store but with more room. Was quite shocked that the washroom needed a code to unlock.

So this particular Timmies is closed for renovations right now, but I was looking online to see when it would open again simply because this is my favourite location! It's a block away from my work and the staff is WONDERFUL!!! There's one particular woman there who is so happy whenever I come in. You can really tell that she... More

Out of all the Tim Hortons in Kingston, this was always the dirtiest one with the worst staff. They generally had trouble ever getting my order correct. The parking is insufficient and difficult to enter and exit due to the busy traffic. The good news is that they have been closed for a couple of months renovating the place, so... More

All good as usual. The folks on the downtown location were excellent, quality service and located close to the waterfront.
