Breakfast in downtown Coeur d'Alene just got a little sexier. Just as cherry blossoms blanketed Sherman Avenue, Scratch revved up its menu with takes on traditional breakfast favorites like omelettes ($9-$10) and chicken fried steak ($12). French toast is crème brûléed and topped with huckleberry sauce ($10), while the ham and cheese is served as croque monsieur with Brie, Swiss and caramelized onions ($12).
Nothing says decadent more than adult beverages for breakfast. How about Bellinis, blood orange mimosas or sake bloody Marys ($5)?
"Doing breakfast has been on my mind for a while now," says chef-owner Jason Rex, who opened Scratch CDA with partner Connie Naccarato in 2009 (Scratch opened in Spokane in 2007). "I just needed to get the right equipment and people in place to do it right."
The right people, and more of 'em. Now open daily from 7 am to 9 pm, Scratch also serves appetizers and select menu items to next-door Studio 107, an art gallery and live music venue. Look for a new happy hour soon, from 2:30-5:30 pm daily. ♦
