Sappho Books - Tapas & Wine Bar

Sappho is a must visit for those who enjoy reading over a good cup of tea or coffee. Peruse their multitude of floor to ceiling bookshelves over two stories, once you have selected a stack to your liking, order a drink and/or nibbles and read. If anything grabs you, buy it on your way out! The books are all second-hand and very cheap, and the coffee is good. The perfect way to relax on a Saturday after the Glebe markets!

I found one on the eastern side of the city, and now I’ve found one on the west, namely one of those bookshop cafes that you unfortunately don’t seem to find in Melbourne, or if there is one in Melbourne, I simply don’t know where it is. Anyway, I discovered this after visiting the new bookstore next door and I have to admit that this one is so much better. In fact I couldn’t move my head without seeing a book that I wanted to grab, and ended up grabbing more books that I had originally intended to do. There was an awesome range with an awesome atmosphere, and if I had more time I would probably be sitting in here with a nice pot of tea reading a book, out the back in the cafe (or even amongst all the other books). All I can say is that this place rocks.

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.

Absolutely delightful cafe, wine and tapas bar tucked away behind the book store and featuring plenty of outdoor seating in a garden style setting. Often has live music placing which suits to atmosphere perfectly.

I absolutely love this place. It feels like you're stepping into another world through a secret door at the back of this cute little bookshop. Very well hidden if you don't know about it. Such a gorgeous backyard and their food is always consistent.

This place is tucked away, easy to miss if you're strolling down Glebe Point Rd on a busy saturday. But behind the second hand book shop is a secret garden cafe. 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.
