Scott's All Day
Opening a new café on Cambridge’s Mill Road – a melting pot of global cuisine and culture – was always going to be a brave move. But Scott’s All Day, which launched last summer, has proved a delicious addition. The brainchild of Scott Holden, the friendly neighbourhood café by day, pizzeria by night, is inspired by Scott’s passion for food and travel.
A foodie from an early age, Scott has worked at some of London’s best casual restaurants, including The Pig and Butcher and Smokehouse. Moving to Cambridge with wife Rachel six years ago, he managed Fitzbillies, before travelling to Vancouver and New York, running a barbecue restaurant and visiting diners and delis from Brooklyn to the Bronx, working for Rebel Kitchen.
Keen to emulate the New York café vibe, and recognising a need for an all-day brunch café, Scott’s All Day was born.
A bright, airy space, created from two century-old shop fronts, Scott’s has a pared-back feel, with Williamsburg-inspired exposed brick.
Brunches include hearty dish, The Stonker, a sausage patty created by Mill Road Butchers, with streaky bacon, house-made beans, eggs, and mushroom on sourdough. Or the quirky All In Boozy Brunch, including a Bloody Mary or fizz!
The sourdough pizzas bases, created at Fitzbillies Bakery, feature an array of delicious toppings, and are ready in one minute, cooked in an Italian rotating gas-fired pizza oven at 388 degrees.
Scott’s also serves lunches, coffee (from London’s Caravan), desserts, cocktails, shakes and beers (nearby Calverley’s Brewery roll kegs 200m down Kingston Street!).
So far a hit with families, locals and tourists, thanks to its ever-evolving menu, utilising tremendous local ingredients, Scott’s has found its niche on Cambridge’s most cosmopolitan street.
