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?

‘Farmhouse Restaurant’ Replaces Sebastian LC on Ludlow Street

Our suspicions about the Sebastian LC closure late last year were at least partially confirmed this week. Yes, the corner restaurant is back open, but not with the same moniker.

    Why would any New Yorker even consider walking in this place? I don’t get it.

    Maybe you should walk in and try it before you criticize it, David

    Because Tim Hortons is MUCH better than Dunkin Donuts … When in Canada, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a Tim’s … Good basic doughnuts and coffee and not a pretentious rip-off like Starbucks

    I think this place is awesome. I met the owner Daniel the other day. He was out front buying everyone a free coffee. He’s very chill and a really cool guy. I don’t think this is a corporate thing. He bought a franchise but he is local and lives here.
