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.

Poetry entwined with folk music and a kick of attitude crafts Loretta’s music. Her strong collection of original contemporary folk music has matured over the years to reveal what is now a unique display of artistry. Loretta’s distinctive voice and engaging stage presence capture personal complexities that blindly live in all of us. From busking in the streets of Canberra to writing in the Blue Mountains, and now regular gigs around the Sydney area, Loretta has been writing and developing as a singer-songwriter. She has a soul brimming with music and stories to tell.
