All the Ways You Can Score Free Coffee in Toronto on #NationalCoffeeDay

Cool beans

Thursday September 29th may seem like just a normal date to you, but for those addicted to the java bean, it means so much more.


Today is National Coffee Day, which means drinking a whole pot and a half of caffeinated brew suddenly becomes acceptable (or at least, we hope). But how can you make the best out of this glorified day that only comes around once a year? Don’t worry! Toronto’s got you covered.

Krispy Kreme

To celebrate the unofficial holiday, the dignified goddesses over at Krispy Kreme giving out free donuts and cups of drip coffee. You can get your coffee and donut on at these Toronto Krispy Kreme locations: 215 Harbord St., 164 McCaul St., and 400 Spadina Ave. Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Tim Hortons

In true Canadian fashion, Timmies wants to spread kindness and give away 10,000 free coffees in 10 days. Starting today, Tim Hortons will create a pay-it-forward chain by releasing 100 special-edition Tim Cards across the country for guests to enjoy and share. Recipients are encouraged to first treat themselves to a free coffee, and then pass the Tim card along to a friend or stranger to do the same. The pay-it-forward chain will continue until 10,000 cups of coffee have been shared, or 10 days have passed, whichever comes first.
