“cozy dining and cocktailing atmosphere”
Housed in the historic 1799 John Updike House in Providence, XO Café creates a cozy dining and cocktailing atmosphere with a modern culinary experience, perfect for a romantic night out, a family gathering, or a happy hour cocktail in a lively setting.
First off, I think the waitress was one of the scariest people I've met in...jk I had the Meeting Street hash which was pretty decent. The pricing was strange, with entrees $10-13, but with $8 Mimosas. XO has a sorta upscale vibe, which the food doesn't quite match, though it's not bad. For coffee lovers, they do French Press. Overall it was just alright.
If you wear pajamas to brunch, you get a free mimosa or Bloody Mary! So I did that. Food-wise, the menu is extensive but mostly heavy, big meals. The yogurt parfait was delicious, if small. You can only get coffee by the pot, a process that the waitress made more complicated than probably was necessary. Slow service overall. Decent food, thogh!
First off, I think the waitress was one of the scariest people I've met in a while. Girlfriend was SO intense. Luckily, we had a fun group to laugh about it, but the service was slow and semi-insane. We arrived at 12:30 and didn't get food until at least 2pm. I was starving, so ate everything, but it was sub par and a bit cold. My omelet was pretty tasteless, although the sausage was good (so get that). The coffee was exhaulted (by our waitress) as being "AH-MAZING" french press, but it left grinds in my cup and it wasn't really anything special (in my opinion).
Not worth it.
I got brunch at XO with a large group, and it did not seem worth the price. Most dishes were between $10-16, with Bloody Mary's or mimosas costing around $8. The decor is trendy and the food was decent, although somewhat greasier than I expected. Probably a better place for a small group than a large brunch crowd like ourselves.
