Time Out Sydney

Browse the impressive collection of new, old and rare books at Paddington's Berkelouw Books, a local favourite since 1994. With late opening hours, book lovers can browse through titles in the relaxing upstairs café long into the night. With over 2 million to choose from, you could be there a while.
