Ampersand sells food, drinks and books – and what a combination that is. With its Little Marionette coffee to please even the toughest coffee critic, homemade chai, and even Berocca on the menu for those tougher mornings, they really have their formula honed to a fine art – that of blending culinary desires with literary ones.

Ampersand is located on Oxford Street, arguably the busiest street in Sydney, but despite its location, you can readily find a quiet nook in this space and remove yourself from the bustle. With three levels catering to any bookish buff, you could while away a whole afternoon without even knowing it.

All books sold are second hand at remarkable prices. Whether you are searching for a novel, an art book or even an almanac, you can find it at Ampersand. Make sure to check out the sale section for regular bargains. Check the website for updates of the latest books received.

Other than the books and coffee, Ampersand also has some lovely baked goods on offer. Be it the brownies or the walnut and cinnamon slice, there is no shortage of options to satisfy that sweet craving.
