September/October 2017

Move over, Oscars—there’s only one awards season that matters around here, and that’s Scout’s Honored Awards season.

We’ve rounded up more than 70 of the best businesses in Cambridge, bringing you the ultimate list of the top bike shops, bars and baristas as voted by Scout readers. We tracked down Eater Boston‘s Rachel Leah Blumenthal and asked her to tell you where to find the city’s current can’t-miss dishes, and because it doesn’t seem fair that you kids get to have all the fun, we also played favorites with a handful of picks from our staff.

Awards aside, we talked to the Cambridge Health Alliance physicians who are revolutionizing the ways in which we address food insecurity, and we hit the road with “Vincent Van Go,” a mobile creativity lab from the Community Art Center that’s bringing art and healing to city streets. Plus, we pumped some iron at Innercity Weightlifting, a hidden, nonprofit gym with a community-driven mission that sets it apart from other fitness centers.

You can find Scout Cambridge at more than 200 locations throughout the city and slightly beyond its borders. Checkout a map of our pickup spots or sign up for home delivery, and learn how your business or organization can carry Scout here.
