I honestly don't know what all the fuss is about for the Scone Witch. I got a tuna scone witch for lunch today. First off, they did not have the olive spread the sandwich is supposed to come with; I paid $8.45 (it was more because I wanted a wheat free scone.) I figure if I'm paying that much for... More

Quite tasty, though conservative portions, so may not be enough if you have a hefty appetite or are wanting a big breakfast. Perfect for a light start to the day/ snack/ tea time. Fresh, flaky scones. Writing this makes me want to go back! Definitely worth a visit.

We went for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised. Good sized meal for the price but then OH SO DELICIOUS. Far better than what I was expecting. The buttery goodness of the scone was worth the wait in line. Glad I bought a second for takeaway to eat later. Just fantastic.

Every time I come to Ottawa, I always visit The Scone Witch. I usually have breakfast there but this time we ate lunch and we weren't disappointed. I had a sandwich made with a scone and a great tomato lentil soup. Their savoury scones are just as good as their sweet ones!

My husband and I were visiting Ottawa a couple of weeks ago so went to the Scone Witch late Saturday morning for breakfast. The place was hopping! And it's not even that easy to find, located on the main floor of an office tower. We both enjoyed our meals very much (one BLT scone, and one breakfast special scone with... More

I had the vanilla scone with rhubarb-ginger jam. It was nothing special. Very average scone and very pricey for one scone and jam and coffee i paid $6.50 and waiter over 28 minutes as they forgot about my order. I finally went to the counter and asked where my order was and they did not know and asked me to... More

They have fresh made gluten free scones in more than one flavour (in addition to dozens of regular scones) ! How exciting. Their lattes are excellent! They have a large array of fresh jams which are also wonderful with the scones. We were here for breakfast. Would highly recommend! Very friendly staff.

Loved the vanilla bean scones so much I brought a dozen back home with me! The Stilton Turkey sandwich is strong but so artfully put together. The coffee and artisan teas were delicious but reasonably priced. Fair prices considering such high quality. Will definitely make it our regular stop everything we are in Ottawa!

Was in Ottawa for the long weekend. We went here twice for breakfast. The first time we had the breakfast with eggs and salmon, a lemon and poppyseed scone and an orange and cranberry scone. We also had the homemade jam which was delicious. Second time we had the eggs with mushrooms and the cured ham. Both were delicious. The... More
