We recently stopped at the SconeWitch for mid-afternoon scones and coffee. Scones were very fresh and tasty. Coffee was good quality. Staff were pleasant and surroundimgs were clean. Had not gone there for a couple of years but will definitely return.

A most delicious sandwich and tea.The scones are heavenly. I bought some to go as well. Unfortunately breakfast sandwiches are only served until 11:00. The tables are extremely small and the chairs are not too comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Visit the bookstore next...More

I love going for lunch, it is small so not many tables but get takeout. Both sweet and savoury scones are great. The jam I find to sweet but the cream is delicious.

The Scone Witch serves up great tasting, fresh scones with a variety of toppings including eggs, ham & cheese, veggies, etc. Larger breakfast/brunch platters also available. The regular coffee is a bit weak so opt for an americano for a stronger cup of joe.

The menu is very creative, you'll eat some different scones you might not find elsewhere. The portion could be greater, as it is very tasteful and you want just more. Good catch for breakfast, a place to go when I come back to Ottawa.

During my visit to Ottawa I dropped by to pick up some scones to go. When I got them they were hot out of the oven. The cheddar savoury ones and vanilla cream sweet ones were my favourite but they are all delicious!

Me and my friends ordered 3 different scones and all tried each other’s. Each scone was more delicious than the last.

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.
