Scott’s All Day
111-113 Mill Road, Cambridge, CB1 2AZ
Opening a new restaurant on Cambridge’s Mill Road – a melting pot of global cuisine – was always going to be a brave move. But Scott’s All Day, launched in 2019, has already proved itself a delicious and welcome addition to the city’s most independent of roads. The brainchild of Scott Holden, the friendly neighbourhood dining spot, 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, 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 to give the ‘all-day brunch option’ a home in Cambridge, 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 are hearty and indeed bottomless! Available at both lunch and dinner sittings, Scott not only serves up plate after plate of stonking, freshly prepared food, he’s embraced the local Mill Road store cupboard with top-quality meat from Mill Road Butchers, and beer rolled down the road in kegs from nearby Calverley’s Brewery.
As well as brunch, Scotts is getting a reputation for its amazing pizzas. The sourdough 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.
And if you fancy Scott’s at home or work, forget Deliveroo as it’s indie all the way as they work exclusively with Foodstuff for all of their take-out deliveries. Foodstuff only feature local independent cafes and restaurant and they don’t take a huge slice of commission either – plus they pay their riders the living wage. Search for Scott’s on their site and enjoy a tasty, and 100% indie, experience!
