Brunch at Nectar

How is brunch at Nectar in Berwyn? I've driven by and seen a semi-full lot on Sunday, but I don't know anyone who's been so would appreciate some feedback. Also, any great items on the brunch menu or anything to stay away from? It's not inexpensive so I'd like to get the most bang for my buck:)

Thanks so much!

  1. Since you haven't had many replies yet, maybe my limited experience with the place can help. Nectar doesn't suit my current needs because it is a fun, very loud scene. Patrons are taken by the style of the place and when we used to go (several years ago) it had a certain energy that some people really like. I always like a quieter restaurant or bar so it was never up my alley in terms of ambiance, but more importantly I am not wild about the food. Don't get me wrong, the food is not bad but it reminds me of the sort of thing you find at the perimeter of a mall.

    All of that said, we have not gone for brunch and I expect that it would be quiet enough to at least be able to speak to one another! If you go, please report back.

    1. Agree with Kater. I have been there several times and every time I go away disappointed. While others recommend it still, I found it to be loud and the food to be average. There are many other places with a better 'bang for your buck', imho.

        Thanks for your replies! I, too have been there for dinner, but never for lunch. It seems like my options are limited for brunch in the immediate area because we are a party of 12 and have 4 children included in the count. If there are other options I should consider please let me know. Thanks:)

            While I haven't been, I've heard that brunch at Georges may be a good option for us. Any feedback on the brunch at Georges would be great!

              While it's been a few years since i've been there, i recently posted it as an idea for someone else and quite a few other people replied that is indeed still good. They had a large buffet with plenty of options for breakfast and lunch items. They also have some separated rooms.

                Does anyone know if beverages (coffee, juice) are included in the fixed price brunch at Georges?

            Haven't been but several friends have recommended the brunch at the Radnor Hotel. My other thought is that I have had many enjoyable lunches at Azie on Main and i wonder how their brunch might be.

              Brunch at Radnor Hotel is amazing and I would pick it over Nectar anyday. Been to brunch at nectar many times and just average food in a nice setting.

                Azie on Main no longer serves brunch. They recommend brunch at the restaurant downstairs (Mixx), but it may be too new.
