Great spot to stop for a drink or meal if in McLaren Vale. We stopped here today for an iced coffee during our ride and it was the best iced coffee I’ve had! Indoor and outdoor seating. Service is friendly and prompt. Ample parking.

Eleven family members had lunch here last Sunday. Extremely busy so glad that we booked. Variety of meals ordered. All tasty and nicely presented. Yes, the venue is noisy, but it is a good place to eat.

First time I have been here, lots of room and there were many tables full. Had the most delicious late breakfast with family members. Highly recommend going here. You could tell others eating here were also happy and there was a large table celebrating a...Birthday.More

We haven't been to McLaren Vale much so was a bit cautious of the offerings for a Monday lunch trade. ? I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised with the 'Tin Shed' ! There was only one person serving when we entered &...the venue was starting to build with the lunch time trade but he handled every customer effortlessly & with a calming nature. The menu is your basic lunch spread, but the meals that we had were done very well !! Caesar salad with chicken & the fried chicken strips were old skool but definitely satisfying & refreshing at the same time! Would definitely recommend & definitely return when passing through next time, Well done guys !More

Very friendly service and the place was nice and clean. The menu was very basic and minimal options - we both had poached eggs and all 4 were very overcooked.

I guess we should have realised by the name, but the noise level was too much for us, you could barely hear yourself think. They were super busy and seemed to be understaffed as the service was very slow. The food looked good, but we...opted to not order food as it took 40 minutes to get a coffee from when we arrived, we were over it by thenMore

We love calzone and it was fantastic! It was served with a friendly smile by happy staff. The coffee was fresh and hot. We would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommend Tin Shed for the place to dine, or just for a coffee and...cake if you're looking for a light treat.More

I am always concerned about going to new places but was pleasantly surprised that this venue offers gluten free pizza bases! It was hands down one of the best pizzas I've ever had.

Had a Sunday free from other commitments so decided to go out for breakfast. Hadn't visited the Tin Shed for a while but clearly other people had. It was packed with loads of tables booked but we were able to find a table by the...window. Breakfast was ordered at the counter and despite how busy the cafe was the food arrived within a reasonable time frame. It was delicious, just as I remembered it. Staff are friendly and professional and they are happy to take dietary needs into account. The only negative is how incredibly noisy it is inside.More

I think they probably would be. Their website says they are open 7 days and they are in a tourist area so they'd be mad not to be open on a public holiday.
