Scratch Kitchen lives up to its reputation. Everything down to the ketchup is homemade or from a local source. The Maine Root sodas are excellent and had a grilled cheese with Vermont cheddar with their homemade bacon that was excellent and the perfect comfort food on a cold night. The fries are fresh and cooked to perfection. The dessert was... More

My brother had lunch here before we made our trip back home...HOLY MOLY do they have good food. I got the "Vegetable Warm"...oh my goodness, do I recommend!! The best sandwich I've ever had. My only complaint would be that the service was subpar. They weren't very attentive, seemed to care more about hanging out with their friends in the... More

Food and drinks were great, although a little pricey. The place was quaint and inviting. The employees were very inviting and polite. Also, they carry so many pickles! Would return!

Everything here is organic or freshly made on site. We both enjoyed cheeseburgers, they were great sizes, and the menu was very diverse, had something for everyone.

This restaurant is amazing! We had the bacon dusted fries and a BLT. I cannot stop thinking about it. Super delicious. My friend and i enjoyed it so much, we returned for brunch the next day. Bacon and beer gravy over biscuits, OMG!

Really good food and service. The Eggs Benedict with Bacon are amazing. The service was a little slow because it was busy but our waitress offered us free corn muffins so what is to complain! Pity it was closed on the Monday - we'd have gone back!

The first thing that hits you when you enter is a strong smell of bacon. There are sandwiches, mac n cheese, burgers, pulled pork, an Elvis sandwhich featuring bacon, PB & J as well as salads etc. We opted for the naked burger then added fried egg, and cheddar. We decided to add a side of bacon which is about... More

If you appreciate organic food, you will love this place. I loved the handmade potato chips. Would eat here again.
