Sappho Books, Cafe and Wine Bar - Glebe
With more than 30,000 books on offer in every imaginable category, including many out-of-print and hard-to-find titles, Sappho Books, Cafe and Wine Bar has something for every reader.
The Glebe bookshop treats customers to cafe goods by day, and wine and tapas by night. The store features two levels of browsing space and also buys and sells used books. There's also an excellent travel section.
The cafe serves fresh and delicious food with many vegetarian and vegan options, all served in the verdant garden courtyard. At night this comes alive as the wine and tapas bar kicks off, often with live music. The wine list is interesting and carefully chosen, the cocktails have funky literary names, and there is a good selection of both regular affordable and craft beers. Tapas in this case are international in their inspiration.
Warm, inviting atmosphere - a perfect place for a leisurely enjoyable night.
