Hayday is Atlantic City’s coffee shop.
Started by local friends Evan Sanchez, Loryn Simonsen, and Zenith Shah, Hayday has always been about more than opening a coffee shop.
We all grew up right outside of Atlantic City, worked on the Boardwalk and in the casinos, celebrated birthdays and new year’s at local bars and spent countless days on the beach. We each left to pursue careers, travel, and seek new experiences. Living in cities like New York and Philadelphia got us thinking more about our city and the potential to build businesses for our community at home.
In 2015, we began our journey back to South Jersey, and in 2017, we came together to build Atlantic City's only independent coffee shop.
At Hayday we proudly claim our city’s rich history and are excited to be part of its bright future. Our name was inspired by the original Boardwalk rolling chair, introduced in the 1880s by William Hayday. Like the world-famous Boardwalk rolling chair, Hayday is here to push Atlantic City forward.
Together, we can make every day a Hayday.
