Tin Shed

Garden Cafe

Laughter is brightest where food is best.

At the Tin Shed Garden Cafe we believe that energy travels through food: not just caloric, but spiritual energy. Our goal is to give the food a good ride from farm, to grocer, to the Shed and to you. We pride ourselves on providing only the freshest, most wholesome products. Our beef, chicken and eggs are all free-range. Our coffee is organic, shade-grown and blended to our specifications right here in Portland. Our dairy products are packed locally using no growth-hormones, the salmon is wild... you get the picture. And when you are done, we compost 100% of your left-overs. Because it is not just the destination, but the journey.

A little bit about our community.

The Tin Shed is a part of a large community of farmers, ranchers and other organizations. One of those, the Urban Farm Collective, works to bring neighbors together to transform vacant lots into neighborhood food gardens for the purposes of education, community building and improving food security.
