Heard about this place and was not disappointed. Unfortunately missed breakfast as it was weekday- but still enjoyed a lunch scone witch. The scones are perfect for savoury flavours. I added soup too - which was tasty

Drove to the place for dessert. The Scones were good, tried 5 different ones (sweet & savoury). The raspberry chocolate scone was one of my favourites, will definitely stop when next in Ottawa.

Yes. I buy scones to go whenever I can. The caveat is to get there early because they can run out of scones by the end of lunch. They even offer to see frozen scones that you can bake at home.
