But who doesn't mind waiting on Alberta? They just text you when your table is ready, so stroll or shop. It's worth it for the food! And the service, the ambience, and the great pet-friendly atmosphere. Yum, yum, fun.

Yes, older upcoming, popular area among homes. It's street parking, so some walking.....gives a person to see what else is in the area.

I am sorry Dari B but Tin Shed Cafe does not have any sort of banquet kind of area. My suggestion, contact them directly and find out if they would be willing to close for a day and cater your event.
