Scratch Pastries - Closed

7620 E. Indian School Road Scottsdale, AZ 85251 | Central Scottsdale | 480-947-0057

Location Description:

Owners Duc and Noelle Liao have their own little piece of Paris at this inconspicuous strip mall patisserie/café, where the vibe is hip and low-key. Bring a friend (or grab a magazine), sip some fragrant Mariage Frères tea, and tuck into luscious traditional pastries, from croissants and butter cookies to fabulous confections. It would be tempting to just fill up on sweets, but the menu includes fabulous quiches and rustic sandwiches, too. Très délicieux!
