So glad we took some reviewers advice and had breakfast here. Everything was perfect. Delicious coffee was provided while we waited. The restaurant is located in a really nice neighborhood. Perfect for a little walk afterwards. We will be back when we visit Portland again.

Alberta Street itself is predominantly commercial, but the streets crossing it and surrounding areas are residential. We did not have a problem parking and walking a couple of blocks.

I am sorry Dari B but Tin Shed Cafe does not have any sort of banquet kind of area. My suggestion, contact them directly and find out if they would be willing to close for a day and cater your event.
