a real treat

3 Apr
This weekend in Portland we were driving down Alberta and noticed that the Tin Shed had an extra long line for brunch. A quick Yelp search turned up this little gem. I suggest reading it aloud for maximum comedic value.
A Yelp review by Wolfgang X.
I fucking love the Tin Shed. I mean for real, there just isn’t anything not to like about it. Other than having to wait. And that is whatever because you can drink endless free coffee out of vintage kitten mugs while you kill the time. Just don’t do what I did and smoke a spliff on the sidewalk out front because even if you think you’re far enough away, all the smoke will in fact go straight into the patio area and then some poor unsuspecting bridge and tunnel parents will have to explain to their six year old what that “funny smell” is and will glare at you while you eat your Sweet Chix.
Anyway. I grew up in Portland, and I’ve been to a milli different diner-y places and have had a milli different scrambles and burgz. But nowhere is as fucking off the chain as this place. Oh my god, seriously. Everything they make is special. You know how you can go to the Cup and Saucer, and you think, Dang, I Totally Could Have Made This Myself? Well I’m pretty sure you couldn’t have made the juicy, flavorful, creative foodz they have at the Tin Shed, which, in case anyone forgot, is totally the point of going out to eat. If you really want to avoid waiting, just don’t go between noon and like, two, on the weekends. Ooh, oh, and it’s also an awesome place to get your day drunk on. Mimosas for days!
