I eat breakfast and lunch here regularly and love their gluten-free options. They label which soups are gluten free and have gluten-free rolls and bread for sandwiches. Salads are also large and filled with veggies. I'm partial to the honey mustard dressing. Always a good choice of soups and the service is very friendly and quick.

Everything from bagels to paninis to ice cream. Great menu and a great coffee bar! Prices are great and staff is the friendliest you'll find!

I have never had anything but breakfast. If you are traveling on Route 2, it is worth the quick detour to grab a breakfast sandwich.

It's turkey, filling, cranberry sauce, lettuce and mayo all "wrapped" up in a wrap and it was delicious! Tim's Bistro is a little hard to find located right next to a laundromat and you need to order at the counter but definitely stop here for something to eat. The food and price are well worth your time and I would... More

It is a limited menu, but everything our group had for breakfast was excellent. You order and pay at the counter and as many people got carry out orders as ate in. We met up with friends that we had not seen for a while and were able to tie up a table with them for about 2 hours on... More

Fast, pleasant service. Good fresh food cooked to order. Lot's of coffee choices. There is a McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts close by but I always choose Tim's Bistro.

Under new management, but that of a long time employee. Smart enough not to change what has worked for years. Great bagels, sandwiches and dessert items. Also serves great coffee and ice-cream.

Little but mighty!! full of yummy sandwiches, muffins, ice cream and beverages-small size, a few tables outside-and in-the food is cheerfully prepared (we were even there just before closing as we did not know the closing time)--go for a real treat! Prices are as most in area but quality is high!

It's not something anyone would really notice. but an important clue..... It was one of those days, where one just wanted to get out of the house on a pleasant June day, and had to fuel up the old bones, and the sign caught my eye - Tim's Bistro - gourmet sandwiches - sounds GOOD! There were two outside tables... More

Tim's Bistro has great food, so good in fact that I've never had a bad meal. They serve up great food like wraps, sandwiches, soups and even ice cream and breakfast. If you're in the area, definitely stop here over something like Dunkin Donuts.
