Finally, Glasgow will get to have a taste of Tim Hortons as the Canadian brand launch their first ever UK store on Argyle Street.

Excitement had been building ever since the famous brand first announced it would be coming to these shores and after choosing Glasgow as its first UK site, Tim Hortons announced they’d be opening today.

People queued for an hour to be the first to enter the new store from 9am this morning, and it seems the new eatery will remain busy all day as Glaswegians strive to be the first to try their famous coffee and Timbits.

With that in mind we’ve taken a look behind the scenes to show you what you can expect if you head to the Four Corner’s newest opening this weekend.

The interior

Having chosen Glasgow as the perfect site, the brand say they were keen to emphasise their connection with the city.

The Food

The food offering is almost as famous as their coffee and the iconic brand do a roaring trade in breakfast and lunch items, with food being prepared fresh in front of customers including wraps, bagels, soups and even potato wedges.

Those with a sweet tooth are also in for a treat as the now legendary Timbits make their first appearance in the UK.

The delightful doughnut holes come in boxes of 10, 20 or 50 (for sharing), come in a variety of flavours such as glazed, blueberry and chocolate glazed, and are part of a fresh baked range that also includes muffins, apple fritters and traditional doughnuts.

Pricing

Tim Horton’s are very big on value and their pricing for their coffee certainly reflects that with their famous brewed coffee being priced at £1.19 for a small, £1.39 for a medium and £1.59 for a large.

The Timbits are also priced fairly reasonably:

10 pack: £2.49

20 pack: £4.99

50 pack: £9.99

The hot food including wraps, paninis and sandwiches and includes the likes of steak and cheese panini  (£3.69), crispy chicken wrap (£3.39) and the turkey bacon club sandwich (£3.69).

Memrobilia

Should you also be wanting to take a memento home, the company are also offering gifts like their branded mugs.
