Marathon Donuts & Coffee

Marathon Donuts & Coffee (unit 32, 3300 Midland Avenue, Scarborough, Ontario)
Google maps hint: don't type in Scarborough when searching. It will lead you to somewhere else.

The place looks like a coffee shop that could have been around longer than I have. The menu looks extensive, but we really just wanted to try their Hong Kong style milk tea. Jo has been saying that it came in third place in some sort of North American milk tea competition. 

The milk teas came in paper cups, but they definitely weren't watered down. Renée got the iced version and though it wasn't bad, we decided that the hot version was superior. Jo and Renée still like the cold milk tea at Phoenix better (they chill it and serve it with no ice, so the flavour is more intense).

Would I return? I would if someone drove me. It's a bit out of the way in this whatever Chinese plaza. The milk tea is good though. The staff is pretty friendly and non-threatening. We stayed there for a good while just hanging out and watching the Chinese game show that was on their TV without any hassle.

Total damage: $1.60.
