Sad neighborhood news. Nectar, the tiny sandwich shop and juice bar at 198 Court Street between Congress and Warren, has closed its doors just over a week ago. The interior of the store has been totally stripped and the signage removed. For many in the neighborhood, Nectar was favorite food option because of its reasonable prices, super fresh food, besides being very kid-friendly.
(Did you ever try their Sweet potato avocado sandwich)

When the much larger "Tropic" Juice Bar and Grill opened at 205 Court Street, directly across the street at the end of January of this year, many readers pledged that they would continue to give their business to Nectar.
No word yet on the reason for Nectar's demise, but the proximity of a second juice bar can't have helped business.

Will you miss Nectar?

****UPDATE****
A reader just posted the following comment:
"Nectar has not closed. Just moved down the block into the Strong Place space at Court St./Douglass (same owners). It'll be Nectar during the day and Strong Place in the evenings.
The current landlord at the old Nectar space refused to allow them to put messaging up announcing the news. So please support them in their new space."


If that is the case, we not only should support them, but let others know so that they may continue to stay in business in the neighborhood.

There was a sign up a week ago saying Nectar was remodeling to be bigger and better. Unfortunately, signs with that message often end up to be obituaries....

There have also been flyers circulating around the neighborhood with a website listed. http://www.nectartoyou.com/

Commenter 12:05pm may be correct. Walking by Strong Place on Saturday I noticed one of the usual Nectar employees working in there.

Thanks for lettng everyone know the good news. I wonder ig Blue Marble would mind if Nectar puts up a sign in their window so that everyone can find Nectar at their new location.
