For years, I’ve always managed to end up at a bakery during the weekend. Whether it’s my mom wanting me to pick up bread for Sunday dinner, stocking up on treats to eat during the week, or even indulging in something over the weekend, I always make time to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Recently, my weekend bakery trips have been to Scratch Bakery in Milford, Connecticut. Scratch Bakery is located at 84 Broad Street, which is in the Downtown Milford area. What I really love about Scratch Bakery is that it has a variety of things. You have the usual bakery suspects – breads, cookies, cupcakes, etc. – but it goes beyond that. They serve coffee and lattes as well.
First, let’s talk breakfast. They serve a variety of breakfast foods, such as pastries, egg and cheese sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, and bagels. Furthermore, they even have special items that you can get on certain days of the week, such as a breakfast pizza, which consists of a “variety of toppings.”
Additionally, they also serve lunch and have a wide selection of sandwiches and salads. They have something truly for everyone, from their Not Your Kid’s Grilled Cheese (the Ultimate Comfort food if you ask me), to their Hummus Sandwich on Ciabatta (which looks amazing to me). And, you can add bacon or grilled chicken to any sandwich as well, which is amazing if you want an extra dose of protein. According to their website, lunch is served on Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and not served on Sunday.
Now, let’s talk about my favorite part about Scratch’s menu – their bread and their dessert. I’ve been getting their bread a few months now for my avocado toast in the morning, and I am loving it. Their bread always tastes so fresh and delicious. They do have an extensive bread menu as well, and you can purchase a whole loaf for about $6.50. Their flavors include: honey flask, ciabatta, cranberry pecan rye, and so much more. Furthermore, what’s really cool is that they even offer stadium pretzels on Wednesdays as well.
Finally, I’ve saved the best for last – their dessert menu. And, boy are their desserts delicious. I’ve been getting desserts from there pretty much since I started dating my boyfriend because he would bring in treats to my job at the time. They have a variety of brownies, cookies, and cupcakes. Some of my personal favorites are their confetti cookie, their salted caramel brownies, Rice Krispie treats, and their cupcakes. Furthermore, you can also order a cake for a special occasion as well.
Overall, I highly recommend you check out this bakery whenever you are in the Downtown Milford area, whether you are looking for a cup of coffee, bread for the family or even just a little treat. I’ve honestly enjoyed every single thing that I’ve had there, and hope to try their lunch menu at some point. And, while Scratch is now officially open to customers to come inside, you can still order your goodies online as well – perfect if you’re like me and constantly on the go or just want to be in and out.
