FARGO - Scratch Sandwich and Deli has opened in downtown Fargo in space that had been home to Broadway Classic Subs.

Owner Linda Kennedy is getting help running the shop at 68 Broadway from her son Jesse Kennedy, and her sister Patricia Hallingstad.

“My sister and I cook and bake and we knew a couple other people that cooked and baked and we said, ‘Well, let’s see what we can do,’ ’’ Linda Kennedy said.

They are using “old, old” recipes for things like cookies, she said, with some of the recipes handed down by her grandmother.

The bread the shop uses to make sandwiches is made from scratch and is available for sale by the loaf. Gourmet meats, cheeses and salads are also available for sale.

The shop sells coffee provided by Alakef Roasterie, in Duluth, Minn.

Two soups will be available daily, Jesse Kennedy said.

Deli hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday to Saturday. The store is closed on Sunday.

The phone number at the deli is (701) 478-3354.
