We spent a beautiful October day in Salem and lunch at Scratch Kitchen was an absolute delight. The restaurant boasts locally sourced ingredients and everything is cooked from scratch daily ; no pre-made,processed, or instant food! Our server was cheerful and efficient, had great recommendations, and even on a very busy day (Salem in October = crowds) had us seated and fed quickly. I ordered the BLT and my husband had the brisket sandwich and a cup of the day's soup - a hearty tomato parmesan. We shared an order of the house made chips. Oh my word, every bite was delish! The brisket was on rye with "atomic brown mustard" and my husband is still raving about it. The soup was bursting with flavor. My BLT was chock full of bacon and very fresh lettuce and tomato. The bread was house made and wonderful. Even though this was just a quick stop while sightseeing it turned out to be a fabulous and relaxing lunch. Great location, great menu, great service, and great prices. I'd go again! Highly recommend!
