I'm a big fan of the Boston Creams at Tim's. Also, any time I'm competing at a Canadian track (you're usually there all day), I'll grab a large ham and swiss and save it for lunch. Great race food.
I've found, though, that you can divide Canadians into two groups as far as coffee: those who like Tim's, and those who like Starbuck's. I find Tim's is too mild. I prefer the burnt taste of Starbuck's dark French roast straight black (I never order the caps, lattes, or whatever of those girlie drinks), whereas those who dislike Starbuck's really like Tim's.
Actually, when you think about it, most people who drink Starbucks drink it with a ton of low-fat steamed milk, so it's probably not about the coffee. I guess it's like buying a good single-malt Scotch and then watering it down with soda. Yikes!
