Café - Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Okay, so it's a bit of a stretch to call Tim Hortons a café (it's a doughnut and coffee shop) but I couldn't let the opportunity pass by to post this little bit of Canadiana. Tim Hortons, named after a hockey player, can be found on nearly every corner here. Many people buy coffee or muffins or even soup and sandwiches here on a daily basis. Once a year, usually around May, Timmies runs a "roll up the rim" contest, where by rolling up the rim of your coffee cup (or in my case, hot chocolate cup) you can win a car, or doughnut, or television, or more coffee. Edit: There are 2710 outlets in Canada, 336 outlets in the United States and one outlet just outside Kandahar, Afghanistan.
