At the top end of Lithgow, there is an iconic Tin Shed, filled with the aroma of delicious meals and freshly ground coffee!

With our warm and inviting atmosphere, great coffee and friendly service, this is so much more than just a cafe!

The Tin Shed supports local growers from our beautiful Central West NSW region. We source as many things for our kitchen from our local area as possible. Including backyard grown fruit and a small batch local coffee supplier!

We have a beautiful space for your dining experience, from an intimate meal for two, or a party of 80 for a family event. Ask us about our grazing platters and large group meals!

Serves breakfast, lunch, coffee and drinks to eat in or take away.

Booking available for on-site functions and catering.


  • Went for a drive to the Blue Mtns & ended up in Lithgow. The Tin Shed looked interesting so we thought we would give it a try. What a great decision. We were very warmly greeted and shown to our table. It was a bit busy but the service did not suffer. The atmosphere in the renovated shed is great. Very cold outside but warm & inviting inside. The meals are varied with good choices for everyone. Food was excellent. Can thoroughly recommend the (all day) “big breakfast”. Thoroughly recommended.

  • What a lovely surprise. The food was just delicious. The ambience was so quirky but interesting. The staff were engaging, knew their stuff and were so friendly. We loved every minute of our lunch. If it wasn’t so far away, we would be regular visitors.

  • Fabulous friendly service. Cafe with character and a rustic country feel. Not on the Main Street so need to look for it. Contemporary menu so something for everyone and good coffee. We will be back!
