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!

Scones are decent, but expensive. I bought a sconewich, and didn’t know until biting into it that it had dijon on it. I hate dijon, so it ruined the sandwich for me. Just my personal taste. Before ordering a sconewich I recommend asking what comes...More

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.
