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.

Tin Shed is a part of a large community of farmers, ranchers and other organizations. In 2016, Owner Janette Kaden opened The Stand Family Farm in Corbett, OR. One of her long-term dreams was to open a farm so she can provide as much of the produce needed at Tin Shed. She wanted the term “farm to table” to really mean something and for our guests to know that their food was grown with love and with them in mind. She also worked at the Urban Farm Collective that works to bring neighbors together to transform vacant lots into neighborhood food gardens for the purposes of education, community building and improving food security. Owner Christie Griffin also decided in 2016 to start bee-keeping. When the bees are busy, we boast of the most delicious blackberry fragranced local honey. The hope is that once Christie and the bees become more established, we will feature more bee-related products.
