Tour Partner Spotlight: Xtra’s Cafe
In today’s partner spotlight, we’re going to take an inside look at one of the hidden gems of Carytown: Xtra’s Cafe!
Xtra’s Cafe’s second-floor-only location is part of what makes it great, and part of what makes it feel like a secret. You might walk past the unassuming staircase without ever knowing there’s a restaurant at the top. But if you do find your way up there, that second-floor balcony offers some of the best people-watching in all of Richmond.
Featuring a menu/decor combination that will feel comfortable, yet add a few twists, you’ll find the food to be full of flavor and the atmosphere to be chic.
River City Food Tours Sample Item
When you visit Xtra’s Cafe during our Carytown Food Tour, you never know what you might sample. The chef at Xtra’s enjoys expressing his creativity, and on each tour, we sample something different (and most likely, off the menu).
Something Else To Try
When visiting Xtra’s on your own, we recommend first sharing flatbread suits with the rest of the table, then ordering the apple butter pork tenderloin. And be sure to check out the drink program – the Sangarita (sangria margarita) is a popular choice.
Xtra’s Cafe is located in Carytown, at 3322 B W. Cary St. There is on-street parking and a nearby parking garage on Crenshaw Avenue.
