I went with couple of friends to have breakfast at the Scone Witch and we enjoyed our scones. I tried the cheddar one with eggs, and I found it delicious. Its location is central, very close to Elgin.

A little bit hard to find but the scones and sconewitches are amazing. I always get turkey and stilton but I'm sure some of the other ones are good too.

I walked over to the Scone Witch from the Cartier Suites Hotel where we were staying. I could not decide which scone to order so I ordered 6!! Each was delicious! I liked the vanilla the best! Oatmeal came in a close second!

What a find. I had a lunch "sconewich" one day and went back for a breakfast scone the following morning. Even the selection of beverages, besides the interesting teas and coffees, were brands I was not familiar with. It's very casual but the scones are delicious.

The scones were great, really enjoyed the scone of the month (rhubarb). We all ordered the brunch meal with eggs, fruit, and scone. For what we paid (~$12) there wasn't a tonne of food. Also, when our food was served there was no ketchup provided for our eggs, we asked if some was available and we were told no unless... More

Checked Trip Advisor for a good lunch place downtown and the Scone Witch sounded interesting. Found it no problem and amazed by options. Server explained the different dishes and options. Food came fast, all served on a fresh baked scone. So good that I had to order a box to take back to our hotel. Lots of variety and excellent... More
