Scratch Bread is really good. They have a list of items divided into eggs, veg, sauce, or meat that they will either put on grits, salad rice, or on a sandwich. You can leave this place with a basic (but still good) sandwich for cheap or you can load up a large order of grits with a bunch of their toppings and have a slightly pricier lunch.
Their items appear to be seasonal and their supply of certain items varies over the course of a day. Their bread here is great, and you can buy a whole loaf for a reasonable price (I think I saw a loaf of focaccia going for $5). From my experience, the items all combine well and the person at the cash register was more than happy to give us a suggestion.
There is no seating in this place and the area for customers is a little tight, which results in a sizable line lying outside the door on weekends that looks a lot worse than it is in reality.
This is a great lunch option in the area and I can guarantee you that I will be returning.
