Scratch Biscuits is not new to the city, just new to the brick-and-mortar scene. The eatery has already been alive and well and appearing regularly as a pop-up at festivals, fairs and other local venues.
Many folks know the scrumptious delicacies that emerge from the insides of this place; things can only get better with the addition of an actual storefront to better house Scratch Biscuits.
So head on up to Midtown Village, settle yourself into your seat and select an item from the menu.
Choices such as the Fried Chicken Picnic Basket or homemade biscuit puddings are sure to transform your traditional meal choices into ones you won't soon forget.

Mitch Prensky of Supper fame is the brainchild behind this Southern-style, quick-and-casual venue.
Using his delicious biscuits as starters, he creates sandwiches and pairings to complement them, making them into meals that are far from boring and ordinary. Breakfast takes a step up when centered around the buttermilk biscuit.
Sandwiches are the focus for early-in-the-day options, with plenty of Southern-style filling combinations to fill them up. Stuff your biscuit with fried chicken, pulled pork, beef brisket, ham and more.
Then complement your sandwich with items like pimento cheese, cabbage slaw, corn relish or cayenne ranch sauce, among others.
Even the vegetarian and gluten-free crowd can enjoy food here, as there are options for them, as well.
Stop in on your way to work, on your lunch break, on the way home from the gym or late at night when powering down a biscuit just adds to the fun.
Biscuit tots as well as biscuit bread pudding also show up on the menu to round out the meal, and preserves and jelly are available to perk up your selection – should you decide to enjoy your biscuit on its own.
Rival Brothers coffee, house-made sweet tea and freshly squeezed juices go along with any selection, and they're especially delicious as a grab-and-go first thing in the morning.
Counter service and to-go options are available, and late nights offer backdoor sandwich options for just $5. That's good eating at a good price, no matter how you look at it!
