The scones were fresh and tasty, and the staff was friendly. Service wasn't quick, but when the food came, it was worth the wait. It is a hard spot to find, but keep going through the lobby, enjoy the art on the way by, and look for the Witches.

The scones are delicious and almost addictive. Meal selections are well-prepared and tasty. Service is always friendly. Crowded, but fun.

Stayed in Ottawa for 2 days and had my 2 breakfasts here...SO good! The scones are incredible. I highly recommend the breakfast with eggs and mustard glazed ham with the lemon poppy seed scone.

Since it moved the service has been much better. The food has always been top rated. The scones are the best Ottawa has to offer.

The scone witch is a quaint spot, perfect for brunch! The sconewitches are truly delicious. They have delicious teas that accompany their food perfectly.

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.
