Another week and another fabulous venue opening in Palm Beach. When will this sprawling suburb slow down in churning out even more reasons for us to spoil our tastebuds? To be fair, it doesn’t look like any time soon — however, any excuse to part with our hard-earned cash in the name of great food and superb drinks is something we are more than comfortable living with. Fresh on the scene at the southern side of Palm Beach is the newly-opened Scott’s Luncheonette & Bar.

Firstly, it’s worth mentioning the brains behind this fit-out is a bit of a hospitality legend in their own right. Scott Perry is a highly awarded mixologist who worked his way across Europe and the USA many moons ago with a notable stint in London’s iconic Milk and Honey bar, before opening up Euro Lounge Bar/Eatery The Lark in Brisbane a little more than a decade ago. More recently, he’s been involved in the festival scene and ensuring revellers have the best drinks possible, overseeing bar operations across local favourite, Splendour in the Grass. To say Perry knows hospitality inside out is probably putting it mildly, so what has he got in store for us at Scott’s?

The small but welcoming whitewashed 40-seater space is minimalistic and the opportune spot to evade the heat of the day, with some high tables close to the street and lower tables to the rear. By their admission, they want the vibe to be a relaxed Italian-style panino bar that hinges their entire offering on the three pillars of coffee, sandwiches, and wine. Meaning the space is welcoming you from breakfast right on through to sunset with taste sensations the entire way.

The menu splits itself in two, with Brekky Sangas available from 7am till noon, and then Sangas & Salad from 10am for the rest of the day.

The Brekky Sangas consist of their standard sanga of pillowy soft scrambled eggs, hot hash browns and fresh spinach on Ciabatta with optional extras of bacon & house brown sauce, smoked salmon & lemon mayonnaise or grilled halloumi.

The Sangas & Salad showcase some New York deli-style classics such as Leg Ham with provolone cheese, tomato & in-house pickles or the Mexican Pork with spiced slow cooked pork (8 hour), pickled red onion, salsa rossa, crushed corn chips, crumbled feta & Oaxaca cheese, served with pork broth for dipping.

If you’re beginning to salivate by reading that last paragraph, don’t worry, it’s quite normal. These are some serious examples of epic sandwiches, and when you take your first bite into any one of Scott’s creations, you’ll know the difference right away.

Drinks-wise they have three brightly coloured made in-house cold press juices, expertly poured espresso and a small collection of allocated wines. These bottles vary from small Australian producers right through to unique European appellations; grab a glass or get yourself into a bottle: munching away on ciabatta sandwiches with vino in hand is quite the Italian look, let us tell you.

Perry wants Scott’s to be the place you can drop in for a bite at breakfast time, a gourmet sandwich for lunch or a grazing-style experience through the afternoon. The menu also features a charcuterie selection, gorgonzola chips and a cheese platter to end all other cheese platters available from 3pm weekdays and 12pm on weekends. And with a cocktail menu in development — featuring an array of classic spritzes — Scott’s has set the bar pretty high. Drop-in and sample the goods, but be warned — you may never look at a sandwich the same way again.

Hours: Wednesday: 7am — 3pm, Thursday-Saturday: 7am — late, Sunday: 7am — sunset (Closed Monday & Tuesday)
Where: Shop 1, 1114 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach
