Restaurant Series: Scratch Kitchen

Founded by Clayton Spalding and Phil Day, this local menu will inspire you to make a special drive to the Cove. Be treated to a made from scratch experience with fresh ingredients (I swear you can taste it) and local beverages. Everything here is handmade daily in the kitchen.

The interior was really minimalistic and rustic, creating a warm and casual ambience.


We had the opportunity to sample their brunch menu which is available until 2pm.

The Wake N Bacon Pizza, comprising white sauce, thick smoked bacon, leeks, lazy egg and a mozza blend (tip: request parmesan cheese and hot sauce as dips on the side) was spectacular, and reminded me of a breakfast pizza. It’s a huge portion and definitely good for sharing. It also wasn’t overly heavy, and the ingredients melded together well.


Chicken and waffles were also a delight, with the flavorful fried sous-vide chicken being a standout. The portion was hearty and came with grainy dijon aioli, which added more dimension to the flavors.


Last but not least, the avocado toast with bennies on house-made sourdough bread was a real classic comfort food.


This North Vancouver joint is sure to be a classic for comforting favorites, and hit the spot as an awesome brunch gem.
