“Hole in Donuts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2012

Philosophers around the world have pondered the question, "Why is there a hole in the middle of the donuts?" The answer is simpler than most would think because it comes just as a safety precaution. To understand fully, a person seeking answers should come to Tim's Pastries to find out themselves. Once someone tries one of these melt in your mouth yeast doughnuts, the answer is self evident because this primal instinct takes over, and suddenly doughnuts will start being sucked down the esophagus so fast that a vacuum effect starts almost automatically. If not for the hole in the donuts, surely a choking hazard would form, resulting in unnecessary loss of life. Thank God for holes in doughnuts, and thank Tim's Pastries for making them the best. Soft, fresh, delicious and consistently so! Come early, lines form fast and stock sells out quickly.

“DONUTS TO DIE FOR!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Tim's is the best thing since Long' Donuts, which is too far away. Always bustling, Tim's is melt in your mouth fantastic. My only suggestions would be to have preboxed yest donuts for quick grabbing and add two registers. Half the time I have to just drive by because the line is too long and it takes quite a bit of time to get through a line of 4-5 people.

This is the best donut you will ever taste! Be prepared for a long line on the weekend but it is worth it.
