Well, I went to the Dutch bakery, they told me they don't do doughnuts :ohmy:

Thanks for your help, please keep me up to date if you find any downtown doughnuts, guys :)

I totally affirm Cathryn's mom's vision: coffee and doughnuts is a great Canadian tradition. As Coffeecrew is clearly devoted to "doing coffee right", hopefully we can spare a moment to try and do donoughts rights as well. Unfortunately, I must also affirm Colin's view of the current doughnuts offered by Tim Horton's. They used to be quite good when they were all baked in-house, but for the last few years they have prepared them centrally (in a huge factory in Brantford, Ontario) and shipped them out frozen to the franchises. It was this action that led the original owner of Tim's, Ron Joyce, to sell his remaining interest in the business. I remember at the time, he simply said "The slogan of Tim Horton's is 'Always Fresh', and somehow this just doesn't strike me as being always fresh". No one could have said it better.

Colin, I suggest you make part of your summer tour trying to find the best doughnuts in each of the communities you are visiting. I will try to do some early field work here in Ottawa for you.

Thanks as always for having such a cool site.<br><br>Post edited by: colin, at: 2006/03/23 03:03

OK...Its been awhile since I've been there and they had donuts then.
hmmmm I guess on my lunch time walks..I will have to check and see whom has donuts in the downtown area.

the sad part is, the chances of finding a place with good donuts AND coffee are very very slim.

I'll keep you updated.

I had the World's most unimaginably bad cup of coffee at Tim Horton's yesterday.

It was hot brown water with vitually no essense of body, aroma or taste.

I cannot believe that I paid $1.50 for this swill.

Simply atrocious!

I had one of those recently with colleagues from work. I asked, &quot;Is it supPOSed to taste like this?&quot; and they said it tasted fine to them.
Since then, however, I have talked one of the colleagues into buying an espresso machine, and she has said there's no going back.
