Tim Hortons: good hot coffee
They remake their coffee every 25 minutes to be sure that it is fresh for you.
We usually stop in at Tim Hortons for coffee and a biscuit or croissant or something similarly fattening. They now offer soups and salads and sandwiches and combos of those three as well. The chicken salad on toasted bun is pretty good with the broth soup to go along.
Decent food for not too much money and it is served within 5 minutes.
The inside of this place is typical fast food place with metal and plastic tables and chairs and clean tile floors. You go up to the counter and order from a menu board that is above the servers head. You pay and then move down the line and wait a few minutes for the results to appear. Take the tray to any table that is cleared and start eating.
Their bathrooms are quite clean and neat also and they have a changing table for people who bring their babies along.Related to:

The Glen Oak golf course is a bear... very difficult. If you are a serious golfer then you'll love this course. If you are a duffer (like me) then you are in for a long, frustrating morning.
The venue will be 40 years old in 2009 and has improved dramatically from its earliest years.
Now it is a premiere course that is touted in many of the golf magazines.
The fairways are horridly narrow but well-cropped. There are traps and bunkers and water all along the way. And when you get to the large greens you will find tiers and leans and mounds and at least two putts.
There is a large practice facility, with a natural grass practice tee, a practice bunker and chipping area.
The restaurant and beverage bar are all new and really classy, in an upscale casual way.
At the pro shop you will find everything you might need and lots of things you dreamed of. They will give you lessons by one of the pros on-staff (for a minimum of $40 per hour).
Greens fees are $30 (includes cart).
Reserving tee times 24 hours in advance is almost a necessity. (use phone number below)Related to:
