They could name her "Timbit."

Staff at a Tim Hortons in Windsor, Ont., are used to serving double-doubles – but delivering a baby was an entirely different experience.

Restaurant manager Aaron Hayes says a woman entered the coffee shop Tuesday morning, saying she was expecting a baby soon and didn't feel well.

Staff were soon gathering towels and one of them, Judy Glenn, helped the woman deliver her daughter in the women's washroom.

Mr. Hayes says a 911 dispatcher helped by giving instructions over the phone.

Minutes later, EMS arrived to take the woman and the baby girl to hospital.

"The lady's OK. The baby's OK," Mr. Hayes said.

"Didn't have time to wait for EMS. We decided to take care of the situation right away."

Mr. Hayes, a father himself, says Ms. Glenn also has had children before so she had some idea of what to expect.

She has been given the rest of the day off.
