I was feeling a little tired and almost didn’t want to go out but my wife had made reservations so I rallied a little and we went to Xtra’s Café on a Sunday night. We walked in and saw it was an upstairs restaurant with an interesting curved stairway going up. My mood started picking up right away. The decor... More

We were in Richmond just for just one day, so we walked the Cary St. shopping and looking for a place to eat. It was funny when we both saw Xtra's menu and said let's eat here tonight. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff and a fun menu. My wife is gluten and dairy sensitive and she found a number of... More

We had brunch this past weekend on their outdoor patio, which was very enjoyable in the nice weather. They had a decent assortment of egg dishes, pancakes, waffles, and french toast on the menu. The waitstaff was friendly and the service was a good speed. On the tables, they put these cute conversation cards that were fun to look at... More

My wife and I went to Xtra's Cafe for brunch on a Sunday around 11:00 AM. There were a few people there, but simple to get a seat on the balcony. I had the french toast with fried bananas and it was incredible. My wife enjoyed the breakfast burrito. We split a pitcher of Mimosas ($15) and they also had... More

In such classy decor, I had the (hipster) traditional:Two Eggs Any Way You Like with (real) bacon. The cheesy grits are just the right proportion of cheese and finely cooked grits and the home-fries are seasoned to perfection without being too salty - a rare find. The variety on the menu was good for both my standard fare dh and... More

Nice upstairs, small restaurant. Really nice balcony for eating and watching the world go by in Carrytown! Food is excellent, service was great, and atmosphere was perfect for a Sunday morning. Better in the summer, but still not bad in the winter......a "must try" place.

First time there, atmosphere was great, food was delicious and the presentation was quite unique. Service was very good. Music was "soulful" and complimented the decor. We will definitely be returning.

Met some friends for brunch while in town. This place was great, upstairs cafe right in the middle of Carytown.) Very feminine and decorated wisely. The food was amazing. Two of us made the turkey sandwich, one had soup, and another had the crab cake sandwich. All where delicious. (as where the mimosa's!) The only rough part was parking, but... More

Revisited this restaurant a year later and the food was even better. The breakfast burrito was delicious, as were the accompanying potatoes and salsa. Waitresses were friendly and the place was not crowded, even on a Saturday. One of my favorite restaurants in Richmond, casual but top notch food at good prices.

This restaurant is well-located on the second story of a building with artsy retail stores surrounding it. The decor is modern, comfortable and there is even an outside balcony when weather is good. The service is fine. Unfortunately, the food is uneven. Stick with simple items. The pricing is fair and reasonable.
