Once you've finally gotten your seat, you might see an interesting restaurant goer or two. Keep Portland Weird was quite a literal theme here. There was a gal in a tutu (I’d like to think that she was celebrating a birthday, a huge group sang songs (like there were around a campfire or maybe part of a weird cult?), oh, and of course the hippie who doesn’t believe in deodorant (this would be fine if you didn’t smell either). But enough about the ambiance, let’s get down to the eats.

Melissa selected this meal off the breakfast menu as she’s discovered a more recent love of biscuits and gravy. And at Tin Shed, the gravy is made with bacon. (yum) You get a very decent sized portion of biscuits and gravy. In fact, you won’t realize how full you really are until you get up to leave. The biscuits and gravy were tasty (although, served lukewarm). But the Shed potato cakes were divine. Super crispy and a dollop of sour cream sealed the deal. Oh, and be prepared you have to get your own water in the corner from a little spout. You can get coffee too, but they’ll add it to you bill.

Sarah had You Gotta Have It. Two eggs, chicken sausage and potato cakes. This meal also comes with a bread choice. I am gluten free so declined and they gave me a discount. This is amazing. Most places make you pay even if you arent getting the whole meal. The sausage was tasty, the eggs were cooked perfectly but the potato cakes were my fave! Crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Just looking at this picture makes me want to go back!
Sarah also got a Bloody Mary with House-Infused cucumber vodka. It was one of the best she ever had. Plus all the veg is like a breakfast salad! :)
An easy place to clean your plate!
Overall, Tin Shed was a fun brunch spot if you’re willing to wait and crazy antics won't scare you away.
