Dinner during a mini holiday

We went to the Tin shed on probably one of the busiest nights for them. A hot rod show was in full swing in the town. The waitresses although very busy were friendly and very happy for us to eat outside allowing our small dog to sit at our feet too. They did warn us that the food would be... read more

This place is in the heart of McLaren Vale. They have great coffee and their cake selection changes often. This place has a nice feel to it, with nice staff, and a relaxed athmosphere.

I was with some friends, the day after Tour Down Under, so it wasn't particularly busy, the order for 3 breakfast took 50 minutes and one of them was wrong, food was ok, but not great, poached eggs overcooked. Coffee quite bad.

The setting in an old house with a tin shed/barn as the main undercover eating area offered a quirkiness that we were looking forward to as several of our group had eaten here before. The Tin Shed is essentially a pizza offering with a relatively small range of pizzas and some additional entrees to share. It was a fairly busy... More

We waited 55mins for 2 meals... Could not tell the difference between a kids size and an adult size egg and bacon except for an extra egg. For the price I would expect better, the quality of food we were served up can be likened to that served at a road house somewhere close to nowhere. The portions were stingy... More

Headed to the Tin Shed for breakfast with my wife and daughter and we had the muesli, pancakes and eggs & bacon. A really popular café with a good vibe and good food. Highly recommended.

This has become one of my favourite places to eat. The pizzas are the best pizzas I have ever had and just went in for breakfast and the breakfasts (eggs Benedict) was beautifully done as well. Can not fault this place. Service is also very friendly and fast.

Husband also had a pizza..forgotten which one but they were both absolutely fantastic. Service was excellent and the owner came out a few times to check we had... More

Friendly staff and always good value. My only complaint is that I would like to see the menu updated more often.
