the atmosphere here is very comforting and blends in with the area well
The coffee is very good but a bit strong
The sweet treats are all very good along with the sandwiches
I'm sorta a brewed coffee girl, so i like a good cuppa coffee and I do like Tim Horton's but Second Cup is fine too. I generally find their coffee a bit strongly brewed. they have a decent egg and cheese on an english muffin and the few wraps I've tried are OK. I won't go out of my way to visit, but if it's this or Starbucks, I'll choose this.
Also I like their make at home Chai Latte. It's basically a hot chocolate mix but making it at home is a lot cheaper than paying them $4 to make it there.
Where I live we have a few second cups. I tried their hot chocolate frozen drink, it's good. I didn't really try much there though they have a lot of variety that's something to look at it. Prices are average why?, because some of their stuff is a bit pricey.
What do you think, have you been there?
I would recommend Second Cup! I prefer Second Cup over Starbucks because they offer more beverage options that don't contain coffee. These include a wide variety of teas, hot chocolate, frozen hot chocolate, chillers, Italian sodas, and lemonades! They have also started offering more dessert and food options (e.g., delicious cupcakes, cookies, brownies, grilled sandwiches, grilled pitas). Recently, I have been enjoying the Caramel Corretto! The service is usually pretty good, although sometimes you have to wait a few minutes for your drink to be made!
The one thing I would recommend is that they lower their prices - Tim Horton's is much more affordable, although they don't have as many options to chose from!
Second Cup is my choice over Tim Hortons without a doubt. The people actually know what they are doing here and make you feel welcome. I love their Italian Sodas; especially in the summertime. I just feel like there are so many more choices here, and for decent prices. It's a coffee shop that has been with me since high school because of their service and quality.
I don't usually enjoy frequenting chain restaurants, but I make an exception for Second Cup on Edmonton in downtown Winnipeg. It has a certain "je ne sais quoi" about it. A nice place to grab a snack on the go or sink into one of their armchairs with a latte macchiato for an hour or three.
