We go to Scratch Bakery regularly for their wonderful bagels, muffins, cookies, cakes, and desserts. What a fabulous resource! There is often a line of customers out the front door, and a line for just-baked bagels. They are so good they have to limit the purchases on occasion. Bob has also just opened a "Toast Bar" on Broadway, about half a mile from the original location. People travel "from away" to buy these tremendous treats. We are lucky to have them so close to us.

Best bagel ever, including NY food carts!! it is sourdoughy, croissant, bagel combo. Out of this world!!! Be prepared for a line and sometimes waiting 15 minutes or so for bagel replenishments. Don't miss the fantastic breads; different offerings each day. Allison, owner, baker is an artist!!

Got a sweet tooth & demand great homemade, fresh sweets, you must visit!!! You can also have a coffee, buy wine, and extras to make wonderful picnic. Being southern, highly recommend the ‘pimento cheese’!

When I stepped into this bakery, I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Although they are famous for their bagels, I found their other baked goods to be quite good. We had the lemon and blueberry scone and blueberry muffin on one visit with good double lattes. The next visit was in the afternoon, so shared a chocolate and peanut butter blondie and the apple & molasses cookie. We took them back to our rental which is just down the street (very dangerous to be so close) and ended up pouring ourselves a tall glass of cold milk to go with the cookies.
