Sappho Books, Cafe and Wine Bar


Not only is Sappho an excellent second hand bookshop but it treats customers to wonderful cafe by day, and a wine bar at night.

With more than 30,000 books on offer in every imaginable category, including many out-of-print and hard-to-find titles, records and sheet music. Sappho Books, Cafe and Wine Bar has something for every reader. The store features two levels of browsing space in an atmospheric old building that is full of character. They also buy used book records and sheet music.

The cafe serves fresh and delicious food with many vegetarian and vegan options, all served in the verdant garden courtyard. The Sappho cafe is a coffee specialist and serves high quality coffee made with a custom blend by Toby’s estate.

At night this comes alive as the wine bar kicks off, usually with live music. The wine list is interesting and carefully chosen, the cocktails have funky literary names, and there is a good selection of both regular affordable and craft beers. Tapas in this case are international in their inspiration.

Warm, inviting atmosphere – a perfect place for a leisurely enjoyable experience.
