Dining at Tramsheds
The old Rozelle Tram Depot opened its doors in 1904 and closed them in 1958. The heritage site has since laid dormant for decades, but has now been reborn as Tramsheds. No longer a Tram Depot but a foodie destination.
Tramsheds houses 12 different food options under one roof. They’ve catered for nearly every craving you could imagine. From fried chicken, to pasta, to ice-cream. It’s all here. Each restaurant, or Vendor is appropriately themed to match their food offering, which includes cuisines such as Japanese, Italian, South American, Vietnamese, Middle Eastern, French and more.
But what Tramsheds is about at its heart is community. They want to connect you to the providores and the passionate people behind the food. They want you to feel like a local, they want you to feel welcome. There are no airs and graces here.
So, let’s explore the different Vendors at Tramsheds, in alphabetical order.
