Great spot

While in CDA on business, we walked into town looking for a restaurant with another couple. We had no reservation, and although busy, were promptly seated. The server was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was terrific, the setting eclectic and casual, and the wine list... read more

We ate here after enjoying the farmers market which is literally right outside the door. We had a fish taco and BBQ pork dinners and both were very good. Wed is also half price wine bottle night so a good deal can be had on that. The restaurant was empty when we started although some folks were seated outside. It... More

We wish we'd have discovered this place two weeks ago when first arriving in the area. The burgers were perfectly prepared to order. The wine suggestion was on point and the Creme Brûlée was the best ever anywhere in the country. Great service and food - very nice experience!

Why do I remember the name of my tacos weeks latter? Because they were so good! I'll have them again next time. Love the outdoor seating.

Party of 5 at 11:30 am and we were the first ones there. Great appetizers and soups. Sandwiches were very tasty as well. Downtown location was nice. Next time we'll try dinner and drinks!

Pulled Pork Tacos with Coleslaw and Mango Salsa... Along with a Curry Chicken Salad that was super delicious, Wow!!!! "Say No More" With an over the top friendly waitress and a cool atmosphere inside and out, I'll eat a bug if you are disappointed dining here.

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.
