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!

The brunch there is wonderful. The plate is full of scrambled eggs, fruits and of course, the scone. Interesting to taste the different kinds. When I go back to Ottawa, I will certainly visit them again, but next time, I will bring back home with me a bag of scones.

Scones - a niche commodity in the Ottawa area and the Scone Witch does it well. We returned to their new location on Elgin St. It's easy to miss, because the entrance is off a side street (Gloucester St, I think), so watch out for that. In addition to an endless variety of good sweet and savory scones, they now... More
