What we liked: We loved their delicious donut muffins so I'm imagining that the other goodies they have to offer are equally yummy. We liked their proximity to The Fun Zone, so if their hours overlap, maybe on the weekend, you might be able to drop your kids off at The Fun Zone and enjoy a child free meal right next door at Scratch (You'll have to check everyone's hours to see if this would really work out.)
What we would change: The seating wasn't the kid-friendliest. I felt that we were too close to other patrons that were trying to work in their nearby table. My toddler kept trying to strike up a conversation with the girl working at the table next to us. However, there were tables that were more convenient for kids and high chairs, but they were taken when we were there. In addition, there's a parking lot right in front of Scratch, but I think it's only available for the public on the weekends. I tried to go in their and get a ticket when we went, and we couldn't get a ticket. However, I was able to snag a parallel parking spot nearby.
