A one-of-a-kind Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop will open at HARBORCENTER this fall. This unique restaurant will be accessible from the street level at the intersection of Main Street and Scott Street, across from the site of the former Memorial Auditorium. The restaurant will pay tribute to the life and career of Tim Horton, as well as the history of downtown Buffalo.
This Tim Hortons restaurant will offer many unique elements making it a one-of-a-kind destination. Tim Hortons has worked with the HARBORCENTER team to design a special logo that links the Buffalo Sabres mark with an original Tim Hortons logo. This special logo will be seen throughout the restaurant and used in product packaging. Within the restaurant, unique displays will tell the story of Tim Horton, as both a Buffalo Sabre and a businessman, and how those paths crossed during his time in Buffalo. The restaurant itself will be designed in a historic nature, with brick walls that will remind patrons of Buffalo’s industrial history on the Erie Canal. Additionally, this Tim Hortons restaurant will feature displays that tell the story of Buffalo’s Memorial Auditorium, the region’s hockey base from 1940 to 1996. Beginning this fall, guests will be able to sip coffee in unique Sabres-themed cups, surrounded by Buffalo history, while looking across the street at the former site of the Aud.
In addition, Tim Hortons will be the official coffee of The Rinks at HARBORCENTER, and will be available in its sixth and seventh floor concession areas. Tim Hortons “Always Fresh” coffee is the only brand served at (716) Food and Sport, HARBORCENTER’s upscale, sports-themed restaurant, which occupies the first two floors on the adjacent corner at Scott Street and Washington Street.
