I have to start off by saying we know some people that work there. We went on a Saturday early afternoon after we visited the Durham farmers market. We were told that there is usually a wait but we sat almost immediately. There is counter...More

First time visit with high hopes for breakfast based on solid reviews. Was not to be. Disaster on all fronts. The shirred eggs were not fully baked with nearly raw whites. Buttery toast was unbuttered and only toasted on one side. The avocado toast topped...More

Very good biscuits with choose your filling. You can't go wrong with the pimento cheese and bacon jam. Cheesy grits were good but a little spicy. Small place with tables inside and outside. Parking can be tricky

This place is hard to find. You have to park in the nearby deck and walk down a pretty brick street/alley to find the shop. Worth the effort.

Looking for something a little above average for a holiday brunch, we were happy to find Scratch open on Labor Day, and enjoyed a lovely bite. The biscuits were hardy and delicious. You can tell by the egg who attentive a chef is to details,...More
