Good food, good location

We were looking for something better than chain restaurant but not too pricey and this place fit the bill nicely. We were there for supper and the entrees were reasonably priced. I had a seafood pasta (don't remember the menu item name) in a white sauce. The herbs were fresh and the flavour... read more

Outside seating and excellent, speedy, friendly service adds to our dining experience. Menus change every three months. Very tasty coconut prawns, very tender Asian Baby back ribs w curry chicken salad. Doesn't get any better.

The menu is eclectic, but as the name says, everything is made from scratch! The food is really well presented and delicious. The service was friendly and spot on. We loved it. I highly recommend the Grown Up Mac & Cheese - YUM! Nice little wine list, and very comfortable ambience.

I eat breakfast at Scratch everytime I am in Coeur d ' Alene. Their prices are really good for how much food one can get. I always order from the'sides', as I haveweird dietary needs. The gluten free bread is great, lox are plentiful and the bacon is always cooked to perfection.

Our entire family of four had different dishes and every one had an excellent meal. This is one of the most enjoyable meals in the Spokane/Coeur d' Alene area we have had. They also have gluten free choices because the owner's mother is allergic to gluten. My daughter is allergic to gluten, so this is a concern for us. I... More

I always enjoy my meals at Scratch. It is a top notch restaurant with an interesting menu and the food is always very good. The staff is most accommodating and it is a pleasant atmosphere.
