Day one:

We arrived in portland and meet my friend Nick Chambly my kids friend from the hood. We ate dinner in a funky neighborhood at a place called, Tin Shed Garden Café they believe that energy travels through food: not just caloric .

Tin Shed Garden Café is located in the cozy heart of the Alberta Arts Neighborhood.
1438 NE Alberta St.
Portland, OR 97211

I cannot express how much i really enjoyed this place. The ambiance and the mood of the staff was awesome. I really recommend sitting outside if the weather is nice  you wont regret it. The food was delicious I got their famous fish tacos.
P.S if suffer from separation anxiety from your baby/pooch/mans best friend thats okay because they are allowed here. If you have encountered insufferable businesses that don’t consider dogs to be people/children too this is the place you’ve been waiting for they have a small menu for your dog that i’m sure they will enjoy.
