Tin Shed

The Tin Shed is one of those Portland breakfast institutions. Brunch is served until 3pm. Then they serve lunch and dinner, but I’ve never heard of anyone going there after breakfast ends.  I mean, I’m sure they do it! But brunch is the main event. Of course, you can expect to wait for it. At least you can have a cup of coffee while you wait. Go ahead and grab one from the self-serve station after you check in.

For many breakfast items, they promise: “We are happy to substitute ingredients to make your dish vegan and/or gluten-free. Tofu, egg whites and gluten-free toast subject to an additional charge.” Well, that’s mostly good news!

Bring your pup — dogs are welcome outside. There’s even a doggie menu if a treat just doesn’t suffice, and Tuesday night is Doggie Love Night, where dogs eat free with purchase of a person’s meal. If you pine for your own pupster, sit outside so you can enjoy the dog-watching.

Oh, and kids? They’re welcome, too, with a good-looking kids’ menu. Breakfast items are even customizable: Get a scrambled egg and wheat toast for $3, and add veggie sausage for $3 more.
