Kitchen is not open on Wednesday nights.

From Wednesday to Saturday at 6pm, our café transforms into a Wine & Tapas Bar. We have an elegant wine list and a selection of locally brewed craft beers & ciders as well as top quality, great value ‘house’ options. In summer, we serve jugs of sangria and in winter we serve mulled wine. All year round, we serve our unique and popular cocktails. Happy Hour at the bar is from 6pm to 7pm.

Our courtyard is well lit with a vibrant atmosphere and live music most nights. To see who’s performing at Sappho next, check out our Upcoming Events. The bookshop building had a former life as a youth centre, so the courtyard is home to a generation of graffiti.

Our renowned Poetry night (temporarily on hiatus) takes place here on the second Tuesday of each month, as well as our newly-reestablished Open Stage night on the third Tuesday. All are welcome.

My fave cafe in Sydney! I had my Bookclub there once a month for 4 years. So many good times there. The ambience is fantastic (particular in Spring and Summer!). Great coffee and vibe and you can’t go past their avocado and cheese melt! Such a cool place, with awesome events offered too.
