Nectar Del Ray
Sisters Susan and Shirley Waller, originally from Dublin, Ireland, wanted to introduce Del Ray to the local Irish hamlet coffee and bistro concept that is the other mainstay of local culture and community where they grew up.
“Del Ray, with its unique character and blend of semi-urban, unique shops and restaurants, reminds me a lot of the villages in Ireland,” says Susan. A coffee, pastry and sandwich shop by day and bistro, local wine and craft beer restaurant by night, Nectar Del Ray is bringing inspired food and drink options into the heart of the local neighborhood in which it is nestled. “Our food concepts -- like scones, muffins, tikka masala flatbread, or our chili & cornbread waffle -- may be inspired from our travels, but our freshly-made foods and locally sourced wine and beer are all about community,” says Shirley. “We want to be that place where people walk to with their kids and dogs for breakfast on a Saturday morning, or the place where neighbors meet for a glass of wine and a bite to eat after work.”
Nectar Del Ray, with its full name reflecting the desire to be enmeshed into the neighborhood, is open for breakfast starting at 7 AM Monday through Saturday, and 8 AM on Sunday morning. It is open until 5 PM Sunday through Tuesday, and until 10 PM from Wednesday through Saturday.
