Sappho Books, Cafe & Bar

We are one of Sydney's favourite general second-hand Bookstores. Walk through to our beautiful courtyard Cafe that transforms into a tapas Bar at night. We are also now home to Da Capo Music Bookshop, the only dedicated second-hand sheet music store in Australia. We buy and sell used books, sheet music and records, host live music and events and are available for venue hire.

FINDING US

We are located in the heart of Glebe, opposite Glebe Primary School which is known for its popular Saturday markets. Glebe is a lovely, old, character-filled suburb, close to the centre of Sydney. Parking on Glebe Point Road is readily available, but bring change for the meters. Alternatively, you can park in one of the side streets or in the nearby Broadway Shopping Centre for 2 hours for free.

Buses to Glebe from the city are 431 and 433. The 370 from Coogee bus travels through Newtown and Leichhardt. We are an easy 20 minute walk from Central Station and a short taxi-ride from anywhere in the city.
