Harry's Cafe de Wheels has proudly served customers for over 80 years, with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Sir Elton John, Prince Harry and Chris Hemsworth have been some of the many to sink their teeth into our iconic 'Tiger' Pie. It all began in 1936 with Harry "Tiger" Edwards, whose frustration in finding a good late-night snack, led him to open a caravan cafe near the front gates of Woolloomooloo naval dockyard in Sydney. He named it 'Harry's Cafe de Wheels" - a rather bold gesture at the time to the local city council whose laws required him to move the caravan a minimum of 12 inches a day. The caravan quickly became a popular stop for Sydney's youth.

Nowadays, Harry's Woolloomooloo is part of Sydney's cultural heritage and still serving famous pies to Sydneysiders.
