Review: The Tin Shed Café, McLaren Vale, South Australia

After a morning of wine tasting(!) in the McLaren Vale region we went for a late lunch on the main street in the town.  First we tried to go to Market 190 as Kyra said it had really good food however, when we arrived it was packed and the wait was over an hour so we moved on.  It was a similar story in a couple of other cafes – this is certainly a popular eating area!

We managed to get a table at The Tin Shed Café eventually though which was really tasty so we were happy!  The café has a really relaxed feel to it with seating area’s both inside and out.  All the food coming out looked delicious so it was hard to select just one thing!  Kyra and I decided to go for salt and pepper squid and the bruschetta which came with smoked salmon and share the two.  The boys ordered a burger and sandwich.  All the food was beautifully presented and were very decent sized portions. The salt and pepper squid was actually calamari however, we weren’t too disappointed as it was cooked perfectly and there was plenty of it.  The bruschetta was a really superb mix of flavours and the boys enjoyed their food too.

If you go to McLaren Vale for lunch then there are plenty of places to choose from and it sounds like you wont be disappointed anywhere.  I can definitely recommend The Tin Shed Café as one place to try.
