Couple weekends ago, some friends and I went to Nectar for brunch. Here's Liz's review on the place when we were there.
I agree with Liz’s review; the food was great but service and ambiance needs improvement.
I ordered a vegetarian asparagus frittata. It came with potatoes and fruit. Because I am always crazy for potatoes, I was happy they were one of the sides. The frittata was perfectly done and so were the potatoes. It's easy to over-cook a frittata if left in the oven too long, which causes it to become very dry. I've even had an undercooked frittata and that wasn't a pleasant experience. However at Nectar, they perfected the frittata. In addition to being done right, it had plenty of asparagus for the texture and flavor. We all also shared a French toast. I usually don’t opt to get French toast on my own but when Emma suggested sharing, I agreed. After the first bite, I was a little disappointed I didn’t order it on my own. The frittata was savoury and tasty while the French toast was sweet and heavenly.
Even though most of us were happy with our dishes, I was surprised by their limited brunch options. Since Nectar is one of the few restaurants that sources most of their food locally, I expected more vegetarian friendly dishes, or at least poultry dishes.
I will revisit Nectar for the food, and maybe by then the service is improved. And if they’re up for it, Liz, the other ladies and I can go back together.
