Right on glebe point road it looks really inviting on the outside since it’s also a bookstore! It’s got a really nice and relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy your cake or dish with a book in the courtyard. You couldn’t tell that it has a courtyard by just looking from the outside but it’s worth a visit with good food and vibes.

I've had a couple of misses with the food but it's never bothered me as I enjoy the calm vibe and the huge back garden. Lots of space to relax without feeling like you're unintentionally eavesdropping on the table nearby.
Was very happy to be introduced to Sappho's by a local, not sure I would have found it otherwise! Great mixture of cafe, lounge, study area and bookshop rolled into one. The coffee was great an ciabatta bread lovely for a light meal. A great quirky find in Glebe.
