Located in Gielo Shopping Pozuelo, this Timmy’s store is by far the prettiest Canadian store I’ve seen. With hanging plants, a sleek minimalist counter, and modernist armchairs in mint hues, this spot looks like a legitimately chic café. A leaf or two, not to mention the “Canadian Winter” mural, keeps the brand from forgetting its origins.
