Tim Hortons on East Houston Has a Fireplace

Posted on: December 7th, 2012 at 6:48 am by

Here’s a quick look inside the new Tim Hortons/Cold Stone combo platter at 203 East Houston. Judging by some of the notes we’ve fielded thus far, it appears readers are taking kindly to its introduction on the Lower East Side, mainly for its fireplace and homey cafe-like feel.

What’s your opinion of this new corporate occupant?

The Decades-Old Broome Street Firehouse is Now a Pile of Rubble
