You won't get much in terms of bulk but the scone sandwiches are imaginative, fresh and delicious. It is the perfect place for a light appetite on an afternoon out.

Went for Sunday breakfast, found the food to be good. Was not expecting the restaurant to be more of a self serve then sit down restaurant. Felt like more of a take out restaurant. The food was good.

The food is very tasty but the service is incredibly slow. This is the third time I've visited the Scone Witch and every time it is slow. One time I and my aunt were the only ones in the shop and it still took 25 minutes for our breakfast (2 egg witches). The staff were always moving around but nothing... More

Big breakfast, low price. Lots of healthy options. A good way to fill up before hitting the canal or touring the city. Friendly service, nice setting.

My family suggested we check out this great restaurant. So good I brought a dozen home. Location a little out of the way. Check out the art as you make your way to the restaurant. Will definitely visit when I am next in Ottawa.

It has become a tradition for mw that I MUST visit The Scone Witch whenever I'm in Ottawa. I've always eaten the same thing. Savoury scone with poached salmon. I was blown away by how good it tasted when I ate it the first time in 2005. Came back in 2010 but was quite disappointed as my salmon was dry.... More

I love this place. The scones and tea are the best I have had in Ottawa (and even compared to other cities). They have great selection and variety and you have even take frozen scones to bake at home. The staff is nice but I often find they are understaffed for their popularity levels.

Upfront, I have a love of scones. However, I also eat gluten-free, which means that I often have to forgo any restaurant made scones. Not at Scone Witch - they keep a savory and a sweet gluten free scone on the menu. MADE MY DAY!! The selection of jams are delightful - try the rhubarb-ginger. I went for afternoon tea... More

Nice concept, fresh scones served as breakfast, sandwich or sweet. Healthy meal on the go. My best was the avocado summer sandwich. It can be served with a salad. Fresh eatery style little place to go!
