We arrived at 10.20am on a Sunday and shorty after ordered 3 serves of toast and pancakes. At 11.35am breakfast was served. We were told there would be a half hour wait, but for the simplicity of what we ordered and the actual wait time experienced, it was unacceptable. Coffee was good and so were the pancakes. Would recommend if... More

We all need fortification when we are on a wine tasting adventure. This is the place to get it. Creative food and a reasonable price. Do make reservations as this place is almost always booked up.

This place is simply the best. Simple in style but great on service and serves of food are large. Been here twice with friends and we all enjoyed our meals. Service is friendly and quick. Very reasonably priced. Nice to sit outside on a sunny day. Would go again and again.

We chose this cafe for breakfast during our visit to McLaren Vale and we weren't disappointed. It was an easy walk from our motel and offered a good choice of options for breakfast.

Over the years we've been there a lot. We invariably take visitors. Been there 5 times this year. Suddenly things have changed. Last twice - serves are smaller, bacon overdone, bread not toasted, tomatoes pathetic (once), cold baked beans (once). I gather there's a change somewhere. Saving grace was the coffee. Last twice coffee has been fantastic. I hope they... More

We stayed overnight at the apartments across from the Tin Shed so we went there Sunday morning for breakfast. We both had coffee, bacon, eggs and tomato. Coffee was great and food was very tasty! My eggs were poached perfectly. Friendly and quick service. Thank you - we will be back!

Even though I live in McLaren Vale it is still nice to go tourist at home. Met some friends for a drink and bite to eat. Really hot day so I enjoyed a locally brewed beer and a 'Tin Shed' pizza. The service and staff were excellent, the beer was refreshing and the pizza, on their own style of base,... More
