Tim Hortons is set to increase their presence on Broadway. They will be taking over the spot previously occupied by Virtual Coffee Bean at 1595 West Broadway (on the corner of Fir).
I have some mixed feelings about this. Don’t get me wrong, I love Timmy’s. It’s just that I have some fond memories of the Virtual Bean from when I first arrived in Kitsilano. Then computerless, I could often be found in their fairly decent internet cafÃ©. They certainly couldn’t beat Timmy’s coffee, lunch, or sweets, but their closure fills me with some sadness. Luckily there will soon be chocolate dip donuts to cheer me up.
