Delicious breakfast. Even on a rainy Sunday there were lines - fortunately we got there early and were seated right away. The portions are H-U-G-E and ample enough to share. The cheese biscuits are light and fluffy - I believe there's a recipe on the Diners, Drive-ins & Dives website from their feature on From Scratch. The staff was very... More

It was good that we decided to go there when they opened on Sunday morning because within 30 minutes, it was filled and had a wait list. We were from out of town but many of the others there were regulars and said it is always filled. We both had Eggs Benedict (One Crab, One Vegetarian) and the eggs were... More

I love fresh homemade food - this is not that place. The food is ok - the last time I was there my potatoes were undercooked - I mean kinda raw and crunchy undercooked. But my bigger problem is that this is not some magical farm to table experience the name implies - so if you want mediocre diner food... More

Delicious food. My husband is still raving about his pancakes, and I enjoyed my cheddar and Swiss omelette. My sister had a wonderful luncheon salad and our friend had an enormous sandwich, which she very much enjoyed. Pleasant inside and out. I enjoyed the photographs inside so much that I bought one! Staff and customers near us were friendly!

More than good food and generous portions, From Scratch has charming servers and a delightful ambiance. Eat indoors or out. Locals know it well and return frequently. Visitors need to search it out in the labyrinthian Barnyard, but it's worth it...guaranteed!

Stopped in for breakfast after reading the reviews. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. I had the extreme biscuit and gravy and my wife had the French toast. The food was very good, this is not old fashioned southern gravy but it is very good. The coffee is great. Nice outside seating area. Worth the stop.

The best eggs ever. But you have got to try the french toast. EXQUISITE is the only word I can find to properly describe the taste, appearance and flavor of this dish. It is so very satisfying on so many levels. Great service and fresh fruit tops off the meal.

This small restaurant is tucked at the back of the Barnyard. Even with GPS it was difficult to find and had to ask a local. The staff is warm and welcoming and offered many good suggestions. This is a breakfast/lunch only spot - they were getting ready to close as we were leaving. Many wonderful entrees - really enjoyed the... More

From Scratch Restaurant is a must if you love a big hearty vacation breakfast. The restaurant itself is cute with very nice outdoor seating, it almost feels like you are dining in a garden. Most people/tourists probably bypass this place because it isn't right in town town, but google it and go! Also, the staff is extremely nice, personable and... More
