Nectar Desserts have this weird policy of not accepting parties greater than 6 during the week. The table we were at could have easily fitted two more people but Nectar claims "the strain that serving larger groups places on our food and beverage preparation can result in our guest receiving poor service." (Read: Inept). As a result, our two friends whom arrived later had to sit at a nearby table.
I ordered the retro red velvet cake with vanilla bean frosting. It was decent. The cake might have been a little dry but not bad. The icing was quite sweet. Alana apparently really enjoyed it as she ate a good chunk on mine as I chattered with Darren and Sheila. 7 out of 10 stars.
It's also interesting to note that although they are located on the second floor, Nectar is, somehow, not equipped with an elevator. This is a major problem if you are Stevie Kenarban and you wanted some red velvet cake. It's really unfortunate. : (
