Inspired by suburban town and namesake, Scarsdale in New York City, this restaurant cafe offers sanctuary for the creative and hungry minds (& stomachs) right in the middle of bustling Metro Manila.
Against a red brick wall and splashes of color, customers are welcomed by the scent of freshly baked pastries. And with a menu so vast, offering snacks like specialty doughnuts and croughnuts, to pasta dishes and sandwiches, it’s not easy deciding which to feast on first.
Taking its cue from the principles of Go Nuts Donuts and the expertise of chef Carlo Miguel, Scarsdale takes artisanal comfort food and serves it up in a whole different experience.
Sweet tooths can choose over 29 different flavors of doughnuts and croughnuts, like red velvet, sea salt caramel, and s’mores to name a few. The succulent pulled pork doughnut sandwich, the perfect gathering of slightly sweet and savory, as well the creamy tomato penne are among the absolute must try’s on the menu.
From the irresistible Scarsdale seasoned fries to double chocolate fudge cookies you can pack on the go, there’s really something here for everyone to munch on that’s a little taste of yesteryears and home. Just a whiff of their cookie butter freeze or any of Scarsdale’s uniquely crafted drinks is perfect for a summer day.More than the food, this two-story haven is a coffee lover’s paradise with informative coffee wall art plastered on its neo-industrial interiors. Like a trip to a museum or a taste of the Big Apple, Scarsdale is a creative space waiting to be discovered—or rather where new ideas and innovations are being discovered.
Take it from the creative teams of Type Kita and Team ABC who stopped by Scarsdale for a few video and photo shoots, snacks and drinks, and to brew some plans for the upcoming type conference, Type Lab MNL. The cafe housed the artists in a bright ambiance that influenced nothing but good and creative outputs, and a couple of Instagram-worthy-moments here and there. (Check out some of the photos by Shutter Panda from our shoot here.)
This is a place where food and art come together, in which innovation is upheld. It’s no wonder the kitchen comes up with such exquisite flavors. This is exactly what Manila needs today, creative food for its passionate youth. And Scarsdale Artisanal Delights is surely a treat that holds a surprise for the senses at every corner. You’ll be coming back for seconds and more.
