Nice place for lunch

Tin Shed is a cosy place for a quick lunch or evening meal. There is a good choice of meals available and the prices are reasonable. It is also a nice place to stop in for coffee and dessert. There is a nice outdoor area around the back which is nice on a mild evening. Seating is also available... read more

Just popped in for a coffee to meet friends and relatives. Excellent quick service with a very clean cafe. The double latte was so good that I had a second one,

We love having breakfast here, and recently tried the lunch, apart from the pizza and garlic bread the rest of us were not so keen on our meals. But the cakes do look really good.

Today my wife and I went to the Tin Shed Café in McLaren Vale for lunch. We both chose the Seaford Platter, It looked amazing when it was served to us but The Salt and Pepper squid was not the best that I have eaten too much batter on it 10 out of 10 for the way the squid was... More

Whilst the interior decor is nothing to write home about and maybe better on a summer outing than winter, we throughly enjoyed our lunch. We had the fish and chips and the seafood platter. Both very tasty and piping hot which was needed on a cold winter's day. Service was quick and friendly. Good range of desserts, the lemon meringue... More

Had a lovely lunch with a friend at the Tin Shed. Friendly service and the food was delicious. I thoroughly recommend the Tin Shed pizza. I had the gluten free base and it fantastic. The best pizza I had in ages. My friends had the hamburgers and they loved them too.

Best coffee in McLarenvale, according to the lady at the Shell Service station, and we agree. Great coffee friendly service. Good food and yummy deserts and great food. Also great breakfast. Children welcome.

We had two meals here, a good dinner and a pizza lunch. All the dishes we had were good, I was very pleased with my steak and the pizza is good. Like many places here you need to look past the decor and you find friendly service and quality food. Let's say there is no pretentiousness here.

The Tin Shed was close to our motel so a perfect choice for breakfast. It's a relaxed, friendly, casual place and obviously very popular. The pancakes are fabulous and the coffee first rate. The only improvement I could suggest is the availability of fresh juices. It still deserves an "Excellent" rating, however.
