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.

Love it always a favorite. Breakfast or lunch or just a coffee. Great place to sit a talk or on the go

This is my go to place for morning coffee. The coffee is great, the service is fast and friendly, the baked goods are fresh, the variety is wide and the quality is excellent. Lunches are equally good - and quick. And, if you'd like an afternoon snack, their Gifford's ice cream is just the thing. The raspberry, chocolate chip frozen... More

Tim's is a great little place. We stop in frequently for their bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches and raspberry chocolate chip ice cream which is so delicious. Staff and atmosphere is great too.
