The legendary Canadian coffee chain started by Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Tim Horton, celebrated its 50th anniversary back on May 17th but before the coffee and donuts there were burgers.
Fitting that it is also Burger Week here in Toronto, today’s throwback photo is one of Tim Horton Charcoal Broiled Hamburgers located in Scarborough. The burger shop was one of Tim’s many business ventures that eventually led to the extremely successful chain that still bears his name.
Speaking of Burgers and Burger Week, if you’re in Toronto head over to E11even for The Woodland Burger: Prime chuck, gruyere, sautéed woodland mushrooms, and mesquite aioli. ($5 from the sale of each burger will go to The Stop Community Food Centre.)
