A family member told me about the Scone Witch and that it was a must when visiting Ottawa. She was right. Do yourself a favor and grab a scone.

At brunchtime on a quiet Saturday morning, the place was buzzing, and we discovered that it would be at least a 25-minute wait for a breakfast plate, so we bought two scones. One was still warm from the oven. The scones were light, flaky and...More

First time here, and customer service was great. We were unsure of the menu items, and the staff were polite in assisting us with our inquiries. The food was good, although our soup was barely warm, which was somewhat disappointing. We would definitely return.

Excellent spot for breakfast. I had the vanilla cream scone and it was delightful. So much so, I came back the next day and had another. I would recommend getting a side of half Devon cream and strawberry jam. So good!
