Yup — Overnight, Tim Hortons secretly transformed a house into an up-and-running coffee shop.

Local residents found gift baskets at their doorstep in the early AM, and were lured to the house by chalk drawings on the sidewalk.

And while it's successfully gotten people talking, a representative told BuzzFeed that this is "more than serving coffee; it’s about serving the neighbourhood."

"Our Tim Hortons team members are out in the community, surprising neighbours by tackling their to-do lists, and dropping off thank you gifts," Katherine Galley, a Public Affairs personnel for the company told us via email. "[They're] demonstrating that working at Tim Hortons is about more than serving coffee; it’s about serving the neighbourhood."
