Xtraction Espresso

JaTo, Pan, V, & D2 on Xraction Espresso.

Xraction Espresso is located at 2/38 Bolton St, Newcastle.

I got my usual cappuccino which I really enjoyed. It was smooth and a decent strength. To got her usual piccalo and felt the same. Really decent coffee. Pan and D2 got large cappuccinos which they thought were a bit weak though. V got a mocha which he enjoyed, he could taste the coffee which was nice and smooth. 7/10 for coffees and drinks.

I got the eggs bene' with salmon and added spinach. It was really lovely, the hollandaise sauce was rich and creamy, the eggs were perfect and the bread was yum. Pan got the poached eggs with smashed avocado on top of an English muffin with bacon. He said it was really tasty. To got the scrambled eggs with spinach, bacon and sourdough. She also really enjoyed her breakfast, really lovely scrambled eggs. V and D2 both got the egg and bacon on English muffin, also tasty. All the food was really lovely but felt more brunch size and type food then your big breakfast. A good 7/10 again from us.

The atmosphere has a funky, arty, casual vibe about it. On of the walls had an amazing artwork of the mad hatters tea party, the other with cool coffee art. The people running it were really friendly and prompt. It was a lovely place to go and relax whilst having a cup of coffee and brunch. We enjoyed it and give it a 5/5.

We had a bit of a mixed reaction to the coffee this week. JaTo enjoyed the small coffee's, a great strength and really smooth. Pan and D2 felt their a little weak. I recommend their coffee but if you want a big one maybe ask for a bigger shot. Food was really lovely, having a more brunch style menu at decent prices. Atmosphere is great, really chilled, relaxed vibe with friendly service. 19/25 from us.

Brunch on Newcastle,
Ja and Company xoxo.
