Canada's Kopitiam

Sometimes I really think that the cafes flourishing in KL are really not that good and way overpriced. On average, in some unknown cafe in KL with crummy decor and lousy brew is charging about RM8 for a cup of coffee. Over at TIMHORTONS, what I dub as Canada's Kopitiam, I can get a fantastic caffeine fix for CA$1.29. This average kopitiam is also conveniently located everywhere, it's clean, and..migosh...you really have to see the selection of muffins, donuts, timbits, croissants that they offer.

And I dunno about you, but I've always liked my coffee in a mug. They also have iced cappucino that downs well during the summer. It is really a very simple concept of kopitiam that people at all levels can go to.

And the muffins..well, they are phenomenal..I can have it everyday, my favourite being the Oatmeal Raisin :) Anyone can intro a good cafe in KL?

Which part of Canada is this from? The only thing I remember abt Canada is yummy almond croissants, lots of lobsters and great Japanese and Chinese food.

In Ottawa? No wonder this place looks so familiar. Merivale Road? ...

I'd say if you've never been to Tim Horton's, you've never been to Canada ;) ...well, eastern Canada anyway. I think it's not big in the west.
