I had an incredible experience at this hidden gem in Emu Plains, located at the base of the Blue Mountains and west of the Nepean River. From satisfying breakfast options to delicious cakes, this place offers something for everyone. As a coffee lover, I particularly enjoyed their barista-style coffee.


What did I have?

During my visit, I had a delicious lunch, which included Pita Stand Chicken, a skewer accompanied by pita bread, hummus, tzatziki, pickled cauliflower, and Mediterranean lentil salad with green lentils, cabbage, rocket, cherry tomatoes, feta, and lemon herb vinaigrette. I also enjoyed Little Italy, a Napoli base pizza topped with Fior di Latte, tomato bruschetta, prosciutto, rocket, shaved granny Padano parmesan, and ricotta. Additionally, I savoured Szechuan Calamari, deep-fried squid served with passionfruit aioli and lemon, and Roasted Cauliflower Florets, hummus, pomegranate, mint, pistachio, za’atar, drizzled with sumac oil. The Roasted Cauliflower Florets were roasted to perfection, smothered in creamy hummus, topped with sweet pomegranate, refreshing mint, crunchy pistachios, a sprinkle of za'atar for that extra kick, and a drizzle of tangy sumac oil. It was a flavour explosion in every bite!

What's a perfect meal without some signature cocktails to complement it?

First up is the Sweet N Tipsy, a delicious blend of Blue Curaçao, pineapple juice, caramel syrup, aquafaba, lime juice, and brown sugar that hits the perfect balance between sweet and tangy. The aquafaba adds a touch of frothy goodness that just takes it to the next level. If you're looking for something visually stunning, the Pretty in Pink cocktail is your go-to! Made with strawberry liqueur, aquafaba, sweet and sour, and topped with fairy floss, this drink is pure whimsy. Lastly, I tried out the Who Knew the Emu? cocktail, a unique blend of green apple-infused gin, pineapple, lychee, lemon, and cardamom sugar that's perfect for the adventurous.

So, head over to XS Espresso’s newest venue here at Emu Hall, Emu Plains, and try out these unforgettable meals and cocktails that are sure to delight your taste buds and make your Instagram feed a little bit more exciting!
