Marvellous fresh scones. Get a sweet scone with jam or a savoury one with eggs to start your day right. Staff are very helpful and friendly, service is fast and the atmosphere is relaxed. Definitely worth a stop if you're downtown. More...
Friendly, good vibes, expensive for little though.
The vanilla latte is amazing, and their pumpkin scone is to die for! Don't get the chai tea latte though...
Came here for brunch with a friend and really enjoyed this location compared to the one on Elgin. More seating and easier parking, but food remains great at both locations.
Prompt and friendly service, delicious scones, and environmentally friendly packaging
Breakfast special on the weekend is phenomenal, not too expensive and really high quality food. Just make sure to go early so you don't have to wait in line.
Friendly staff. Bought some scones and clotted cream to go for tomorrow's breakfast. Looking forward to trying them.
Delicious and fresh scones. Great customer service
Delicious scones, great service
Really good. Can be busy.
Great food and service. A lovely place for tea and a chat.
amazing scones love it
Such a great range of scones, including savoury! We absolutely loved the scones we chose (I got lemon poppy with wild blueberry jam, and he got smoked salmon topped scones) and would recommend this place for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or a quick snack!
Amazing food, the scones are so delicious!
Great as always
Awesome lunch! Thank you Scone Witch! I had the Turkey and Stilton scone with a salad, excellent portions and the stilton did not overpower the rest of the sandwich. Very happy.
Very friendly staff and the scones were super delicious. This place has a nice vibe and I lobe their preserves selection.
I love the scones from SconeWitch. During my clinical rotations I would always give staff members scones as a thank you. They were always appreciated after the morning rush. More...
Friendly staff and amazing breakfast brunch presentation! Totally impressed!
I went here for breakfast a few weeks ago and it was delicious! The staff were very kind and we didn't have to wait long at all! I will definitely be going back.
Love love LOVED the food!
I only had the peach scone special but it was wonderful.
Amazing scones. The jam was also excellent. A bit hard to turn it into a meal, but they pull it off. The scones are relatively inexpensive when bought individually (more expensive in a meal) especially for how great they are.
BEST SCONES IN TOWN! It is so good!! Would recommend this place over and over again!!
Un bon endroit où prendre des brunchs ou des gourmandises.Les quantités ne sont pas exceptionnelle et les prix sont plutôt cher. Le service est bon, il y a de la place pour manger sur place et il y a des toilettes accessible pour les clients.Leur chocolat chaud est pas exceptionnel... Cela ne goûtait pas vraiment le chocolat.J'ai pris un brownies qui était bon. More...
Went here for an 8am bite before a walking tour of the city and it was perfect. The place smells amazing and the service is good. Scones were fresh and fluffy. Coffee was good and they had lactose free milk options on hand. A nice quiet place to start the day. They even have little jars of the preserves that you can buy and take with you. But definitely come here for the scones, they're amazing More...
Best place in Ottawa to get fresh scones by far. With lots of variety of flavours of scones be it sweet or savoury. There is an assortment of jams to compliment the scones plus don't forget their clotted cream can't be beat. It's not just a breakfast place there is also a lunch menu and the coffee is delicious. I highly recommend this place. More...
One of the greatest scone that I ste, good menu and nice place
Great fluffy and light scones served traditionally or in sandwich version...Great coffee and atmosphere, good choice for weekend brunch!!Recommended!!!
Delicious, fresh-baked scones and "sconewiches"
It's scones galore! A great variety of scones and jams. They have several savory options as well, and a great café drink menu. Of course, they have all the tea's you'll need for having a scone. Great for breakfast, lunch, or a nice snack. Chill atmosphere as well. More...
Food was okay, not great but definitely not bad. Issue was more the seating, seems like it could be a sit down restaurant but is more like a fast food grab n go.
Delicious as always. The mushroom Rahul was sold out, devestating. Tried the white wine chicken instead, it was pretty good but I am a die hard for the mushroom. I'll be back.
Zelena van der Leeden
Best scones in Ottawa!
The best scones ever!
The BLT with pesto sconewitch was amazing!
The scones are good, really really good The seating area is a bit of a mess, but a lot of the scones flake off fly everywhere so it's kind of understandable. I see the staff trying their best to always keep it clean though. More...
Great little spot. Tasty scone.
Great scones and breakfast options.
Scones. Freshly made scones. Made for you. With jam and whipped cream. What more could you want? Real talk, the onion and red pepper they put on my egg wasn't very good, but I didnt mind because everything else was delicious!!!!
This is my second time visiting the place to have a brief and casual tea time in the middle of busy afternoon. This is a decent place to get a scone and a cup of tea in Ottawa! They served varied versions of scones, not the traditional way if you are thinking about the British style of scones, but I still enjoyed them. I had to purchase jam and clotted cream separately though, and somehow the clotted cream was not the cream exactly - it was more like butter I think. For a small pot of tea, an oatmeal scone, and jam and butter, I paid 7.74 plus tip. Thanks for the good food! More...
Always fresh and the soups are delicious!
Not a tonne of seating unfortunately, but these scones are beyond words! The clotted cream and jam gets me every time, and some gluten free options are a great touch!
Simply the best scones out there.
I enjoy coming here on the weekend. I try to visit once a month. It is one of my absolute breakfast destination downtown. The sweet and savoury option is by far my favourite and the mushroom ragout on my eggs are phenomenal . Service is super and the food delicious. I hope they expand ever so slightly to retain that small, but lovely café feel. Very happy customer. More...
A favorite! The scones and jams are delicious
Sandra Maria Guedes Mendes
The food is good, but you need to fight for a table because nobody controls this.
Bewitchingly perfect scones every time.
taste good but it's kinda expansive and the fruit is too less
Their scones are divine! Had to buy half a dozen for the drive home.
Food was delicious and healthy, staff was friendly, wait times were completely acceptable. I recommend the blackberry jam and Devon cream, they go great with tea!
They have great staffs
First time here for their weekly Afternoon Tea on Tuesday Frim 15:00 to 17:00. Spaces are limited so you have to call them to confirm availability and book your seat. anytime during the week until 11:00 on the date of the event IF there is a space still available.It's a great way to have a little bit of everything for those of us who can't decide what to order cause we want to eat it all!. Be warned that if you clear your plates, be ready for the food coma to follow.There's butter everywhere, heavy cream clotted cream at Tea and then cheese, cheese cheese! This is definitely a full fat, full flavour feast! More...
Best scones I've ever had. Both the sweet scones and the scone sandwich are delicious.
Really good scones and jams.
Love the scones!! Both savory and sweet!
Excellents scones salés et sucrés. Il y a ausdi des confitures et gelées maison, des spéciaux du jour complet avec salade.
Great spot for lunch and breakfast! All of their scones are made in-house, each one being warm, soft and flavourful.
The must food stop for good scones. As well a good stop for either breakfast, brunch, lunch or afternoon tea.
Mr. & Mrs A
wow!!!the lemon curd was soo goooood and the devon creamLoved the experience and will def visit againTried the lemon poppy seed scone, vanilla, apple toffee, and cranberry orange. It tasted fresh and amazing. such a treat to come here!!!we seriously Cannot wait to visit this place again when were in ottawa next. More...
The space is lovely, the food is tasty and the service is excellent. Would go back!!!
So good, and the gluten free options are delicious too
The food and staff are awesome!
Love the selection! Sweet or savoury, you'll probably find something you like. Grear coffee too. I recommend this place.
Pricey but good
Super fresh and perfectly soft delicious scones!
Très bon et bel endroit. C’est tout de même un peu cher 45$ pour 2 à mon avis.
A very nice place to have real scones with your selection of jams! Or to get your sconewitch
The Devon cream!!! The cream!! The cream!!! How I wish they sold this cream in my city!!You can sit down to eat here, take food to go, or you can buy a jar of jam, bottle of Devon cream, etc. Vanilla scone, Strawberry jam, and Devon cream combo was the best; everyone at my table thought so too. Strawberry jam was the best store bought jam I have had.The vanilla scone was lovely; the best I have had so far, but the cream was the knockout!! The cream is thick like softened butter. Put the cream thickly on the warmed vanilla scone and then add the strawberry jam on top! Wow!! Wow!! Wow!! I am in love!! I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars!! I also tried the lemon curd on the lemon poppy seed and vanilla scone, and tasted raspberry jam on the vanilla scone. They were nice, but not like the other. They have a customer washroom. *See my pics for more info. More...
So yum! Sweet or savoury scones. Eat in, Light fare. Take some home with you for those jealous at missing your fabulous lunch!
The vanilla cream scone is the best scone i’ve ever had. The raspberry scone was incredibly off and tasted nothing like raspberry.
I had a breakfast with my family and we loved the food as well as the service. I recommend for every one who want to have breakfast or branch. Thanks guys.
The menu was awesome. The price was reasonable and the place was cozy . The way they treat treat their customer was appreciable. The staff was friendly and dedicated towards their work. I would like to recommend this place to all the food lover. More...
Everything is always delicious and staff are friendly and quick! Best scones in Ottawa hands down!
Always fresh and good.
I often visited this place and always had great food. Good thing about this place is their food presentation. and the place is neat and clean. and well maintained and the theme of restaurant is also nice. must visit place for all. More...
Amazing food and great service! The scones and jam selection is just out of this world
I had a great date with my mom here enjoying delicious scones with cream and jam. Everything we were hoping for in our scone . The americano was delicious too, however next time I have to have the tea since it is a scone store. Staff is very friendly too and the store is kept very clean and cute. Prices are average price for a cafe in Ottawa, spent $15 for two coffees, two scones, and shared a cream and jam. More...
Excellent counter service restaraunt selling variations of Scones. We sampled Plain, Orange & Cranberry and Peach Ctumble. Also sells hot drinks with decent coffee and hot chocolate. Brunch breakfasts also available. Takeout took in individual or boxes of 6 or 12.Good disabled access, no menu, items are listed above the serving counter. Helpful staff so just ask More...
One of the best brunch places in Ottawa, small location so it fills up really quickly
The flakiest scones ever!
SO. GOOD. like eating a sandwich on half a stick of delicious butter:)
excellent food friendly service!
Super fresh food, great coffee, and friendly service! The scones are the best I've had outside of Europe.
We had the bumbleberry scone and scone sconewitch with ham. Service was quick and the food was so delicious. We would definitely come back!
I first visited the Sconewitch in 2012 in a different location it was lovely to return 7 years later and still find the same tasty food and great service.
Great delicious sweet and savory scones!
This place is worth the visit just to take in all the wonderful smells roaming about (someone please make some sort of body spray so I can smell like scones all day! ) Everything was delicious, flavourfull, and fresh! Service was great even with it being extremely busy in there! Brunch is a steal (mushroom ragu on eggs all the way!!) Will definitely make this a stop every time I'm in Ottawa. Man....I'm still thinking of them scones!! More...
Nice scones. Parking available outside on the street or if your not lucky you can go exactly opposite the restaurant for the parking garage.
The scones are the best part, amazingly fresh! Crisp in the right spots and soft in the middle. The jams are also really nice. Would prefer if they had some more hearty breakfast options ie bacon. Also coffee is very average, need a better machine and barista training. Would definitely go back. More...
Tasty, buttery, and friendly. Also cute logo.
Good coffee, perfect service, I didn't like the scone but I guess scones are just not my thing. Otherwise it was freshly baked
The peach crumble scone is amazing!
Great food, but if you order takeout make sure to double check your order. I've left a few times without dressing for my salad and just got back to my office without the soup I ordered. They were great about fixing their mistake, however. More...
Had a wonderful breakfast
Great location with great scones! The cappuccino isn't the best but the scones are great. Staff is also very helpful and nice.
They get quite creative with their scones here. Their take on the sandwich, the sconewitch comes with a wide variety of fillings. I tried the one with the salmon and it tasted great. The servers are a young smiling bunch. Overall a nice experience. More...
Amazing place. Great atmosphere, amazing food and friendly staff. If you're looking for a delicious light breakfast I would absolutely recommend this place.
What an amazing experience! A very nice gentleman gave our 3 month old a little hand knitted finger puppet that he loves, the Scones were delicious (both savory and sweet), prices were great and the staff was awesome! Would highly recommend!
Nice atmosphere excellent staff excellent service. And the food was amazing.
Perfection. Always crowded, though.
Great place for lunch. The scones are delicious for eat in or take out.They have plenty of lunch options with scones (sconwitches) I recommend the ham and gruyere. Staff is helpful and pleasant, service is quick although it often gets busy - a symptom of being popular! More...
The scone witch is awesome. Consistently good food and coffee!
Toujours excellent Très achalandé Premier arrivé premier assisQuand une table se libère il faut sauter dessus -littéralement -On comprend car les scones sont excellents
It's always worth the wait...even during Ottawa Race Weekend.
I now cannot eat scones from any other place. It s the pinnacle of sconedom.
Bought the bake your own with some English cream. Sooooo good
Marvellous scones!!! Tasty fresh food, friendly staff. Great for breakfast!
Best brunch, totaly worth it!
One of the best brunch I have ever had in Canada
The lemon-lavender scone with wild blueberry jam was amazing. The staff were great and overall it was a nice experience
Always delicious and very crumbly scones. Prompt service from staff.
Would have given 5 stars, but the visit this morning, Thursday, May 16, was not nearly as superb as our visit on Tuesday, the morning of the 14th. Tuesday the eggs were sublime, creamy and moist; the sliced mushroom topping had a freshness and fullness to it; the herb and onion scone was oven fresh, flaky, and crispy. So, Tuesday was a solid and definite 10! (I was told "Cameron" was cooking, check before you go and make sure he's there. He really seemed to enjoy what he was doing, always smiling and energetic.) Thursday, was a 5, at best ☹️. The eggs were overcooked, twice; the mushroom topping looked like it had been tortured; the cold, heavy, scone tasted at least a day old. I had to ask for it to be reheated, they did, without even offering me a fresh one. I was heartbroken after my earlier, stellar, experience. (I was told who was cooking this morning, but I won't name her. I watched her over cooking every portion of scrambled eggs, with little expression, and low energy, she just didn't seem to enjoy her work, and my meal suffered.) I noticed that there were more than a few plates left with scrambled eggs on them (unlike Tuesday morning). Scrambled eggs might seem easy to make, but it actually takes attention and care, like Cameron's, to create light, creamy, melt in your mouth eggs that prompt rave reviews and make travellers come back a second time in one week. I'm not sure whose fault the stone cold, day old tasting scone was . More...
They do scones very well! The scones are tender with the right amount of crispness. I always order the current ginger scone with the Moss Berry Farms ginger rhubarb jam. Delicious! Brunch here is also a treat. The scrambled eggs are creamy, and the green and fruit salads are fresh. I've had the ham and the mushroom ragout, and both have been delicious. Their ginger tea is sharp and very gingery, just the way I like it! More...
Yummy scones and jam! Great eggs. Enjoyed the salmon. Wish I'd ordered a cappuccino.
The scone sandwich was great!
The best scones I've ever eaten!I tried the onion and herbs and the raspberry one. Even though both are amazing, I found the first one more flavorful than the second. Also, the raspberry one was very small compared to the savory.I think the service can be improved, I did not feel very "welcome" as I only bought two scones and it shouldn't be the case. More...
This has been my third year visiting this place, and they still have the best scones I've ever had.
The best scones.
Mashroom ragu için kursun atar kurşun yerim:)
Très belle petite pâtisserie et autre gâteries. Elle vaut le détour.
Norman de Bellefeuille
Best oatmeal scones in Ottawa. Good coffee and a pleasant environment.
Good scone and proper Devon cream.
Norman de Bellefeuille
Best oatmeal scones in Ottawa. Good coffee, pleasant surrounding, a nearby bookstore and an attentive staff. It works.
Worlds best Scones. Not a lot of space to sit down and eat. Best to load up on Scones and do a take out.
Les scones sont vraiment bons et frais, mais c'est tout de même un peu cher. Place totalement anglophone lors de notre visite.
Delicious! Brunch comes with scrambled eggs, meat of your choice (vegetarian options too), fresh fruit, fresh scone and a small salad. Their coffee was also amazing. Everything is worth the money. We were visiting Ottawa for the weekend and went to this place twice as we enjoyed it that much! More...
The scones were delicious and served with good coffee!!!
Love the ginger rhubarb jam and maple pear scone!
I have a new addiction to scones after visiting this place. I really wish I could have taken some pictures of the food but it disappeared into my mouth before I could get the chance. I'll give a breakdown of different aspects of this place below but for the Coles Notes version, you definitely owe it to yourself to try this place.Layout: lots of wooden chairs and tables at different heights. The place is always busy but I've never had to wait long to find a spot to sit. Weekends are definitely busier but during the week isnt too bad. Very clean and spacious. Food: excellent. If you like scones and breakfast fare then you've come to the right place. I recommend the breakfast special with mustard glazed ham over eggs, vanilla scone with blackberry jam. They also do scones of the month which helps keep things fresh. There are sweet and savoury options depending on your craving which you'll eventually want to try. Coffee: this gets a special spot because I love my coffee and I am a huge fan of whichever blend they are serving. I would have bought a bag for home if I wasnt already overstocked. Price: a little pricey, but not much more expensive than anywhere else. I dont mind paying for quality and contributing to small businesses and this place definitely checks both of those boxes. Overall, I cannot say enough good things about this place. You owe it to yourself to try it out. More...
Best scones I've ever had. The texture is just heaven.
Love the ham and gruyere sandwich and the orange cranberry scone here.
Holly Molly! They've got delicious sconne there !!!
Excellent food! Great ambiance.
Scones are very filling and delicious.
Hadn't tried a scone, and did -- liked it.
Lovely scones. Get the Herb & Onion.
The scones here are fabulous!
Delightful, very tasty. Small, so if you go at lunch or weekend brunch time, be prepared for a wait.
Lived up to the other reviews that I read! Really good scones!!
Great bakery on site ... very fresh. Lots of options.
First time here. Food was amazing, staff is very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend. Will be back.
Great Easter brunch at SconeWitch!! Delish
I come to this location regularly with my partner. We both speak about how we could just get a scone and soup and be satisfied. .. and then laugh because we both know how much we love the sandwiches. Portions are the perfect size and you’ll leave being full and happy. The soup is always delicious and I’ve yet to have a sandwich/scone that I didn’t like. The attention to detail in the recipes makes every one special. It makes every dish just elevated enough that you know you couldn’t make it at home, while still providing the comforts and nutritional value of a home cooked meal. 10/10 would recommend. More...
Went for brunch with my family on a saturday morning. Seating was a bit of an issue. Tables are small and the place was packed. The food, however was great. I really really enjoyed the scones. More...
Best scones I’ve ever had, pair them with their delicious jams for a taste of heaven. Would definitely come back for these. Coffee was ok, nothing too special. Staff could have been more attentive to clearing tables, ensuring the cream/sugar station was stocked; the little things. More...
I discovered this place by accident when visiting Ottawa a few years ago. I planned to stop by on my next visit and the scones were just as delicious as I remembered!
Great scones, nice atmosphere
Delicious scones, and I thought I didn't like them until I tried these! Butter is extra $, and the price of tea is quite steep (no pun intended). They do however have wheat-free scone options available if that's your thing, which is nice (both sweet and savoury). Will be going back More...
If you visit a scone witch restaurant you will observe people who stop for a moment before digging into their delicious food. That's because their creations are appetizingly beautiful and delicious! Their scones are truly out of this world and the sandwiches they make with them are very tasty. Plus you can buy some to bring home and share the love! More...
A weekend treat. Raspberry jam was brilliant
Excellent coffee and tried a scone for the 1st time. OMG that's a good pastry. Kind of like a tea biscuit and muffin mixed together. Will def stop by again.
Best bread Ottawa winner
Melt in your mouth, buttery, fresh, moist. The jam is amazing. SO good .
Super delicious and worth the money! Scones are made fresh and the staff are very kind. The only thing is that there is very limited seating and it can get very busy on the weekends, so you may have to take your food to go.
Nice place. Good food. Excellent service.
No better place to have breakfast or lunch on Ottawa. The scones and jams are delicious...
This place absolutely never disappoints. Go for the strawberry rubarb jam!
Great place hidden in the back of a business building. You order at the cash, and then your food is brought over to your table. They have some interesting breakfast options, all with some scone involved. The lady who took my order was very kind and made a good recommendation, and the man who was clearing tables was also very kind. Will definitely be back here when I visit Ottawa! More...
Portions are small but quality of food is quite high. I would go back.
All I have to say is - "More scones please!"
The presentation was great..had second thoughts of eating our orders because it was so precious.The staffs were very accommodating.
Love this place!
Nice coffee shop with fresh baked goods. Seemed to have a lot of locals.
Service superbe et bilingue. Scones très spéciaux et café hors pair. Allez-y, vous aimerez!
Great scones and food, great service, very popular
Love the scones here, just wish there was better seating.
Delicious and great service!
Visited Ottawa this past weekend and discovered this little gem less than a block from our hotel. On our first visit, we kept it simple - coffee and various scones with jam - which were very good. This is when we noticed the breakfast plates that other customers were ordering. Back at the hotel that night, we checked out the breakfast menu online and this morning all three of us ordered different combinations of the breakfast plates, referred to on the menu as "brunch". The variation I had was comprised of a fresh baked vanilla-cream scone with wild blueberry and raspberry jam, brilliantly smooth scrambled eggs topped with melt-in-your-mouth mushroom ragout, all accompanied by fresh cut fruit. I paired this a delicious salted caramel latte. The only thing I would mention to everyone is that it can get quite busy and it isn't overly large. Think cafe, which it is, more than restaurant. This is not meant to discourage anyone from visiting, just something to keep in mind (and I can only comment based on my two weekend morning visits). On our first visit on Saturday, we readily found a table, however Sunday morning we had to wait for some room to clear up, however, it did by the time our orders were brought out. However, when we left there was quite the lineup to order. Aside from the food, all of the staff were very friendly and quite knowledgeable about their products. When in the Ottawa area, be sure to check them out. More...
The most delicious scones I ever ate ! Lovely vibes
Really great breakfast, scones and jam!!
Always a favourite to come back to in Ottawa.; Love the twist on breakfast here. It's something a bit different.
Terrific service and the scones are second to none.
Les scones sont délicieux et très variés!
Used Sconewitch for a catering function. Service was fantastic, prices were super fair, and food was delicious. Team was very happy. Thanks again!
Fantastic Scones and Coffee. A real local treat. staff are wonderful. Jams are a must purchase.
Great location, for a lunch or after lunch tea and scone. Friendly staff.
Chrystyan Parada Lopez
This is my place to go when I think on breakfast, their scones are so delicious, I love their onion and herbs scone with butter, it's so perfectly done, with the right texture. They have several scone-based sandwich options with or without salads, all delicious specially if you pair them with their unique jam selection. But the real deal here it's their breakfast/brunch special: eggs, topping, scone, salad and jam/butter. It's a no-brainer, it the best! Portions are fair, if you are thinking just on volume, then this is not the right place for you, or just get an extra sandwich!. This place is about great taste and creative flavors. Highly recommended. More...
Such a great scone I’ve ever had!
The most delicious scones and jams are served here! I really liked the consistency of the scones (they were baked to perfection). The selection of jams was wonderful! I also really enjoyed the lemon curd. Overall a wonderful experience. Definitely would come here again! More...
An absolutely delicious experience and fantastic staff!
Superb scones! A little pricey but it is worth it. A must-try when visiting Ottawa!
Delicious, flakey scones, both sweet and savory.
Nice industrial vibe, great food and quick service.
One of my favourite spots to breakfast. The scones and jam are amazing!
Get the stilton scone! Sooo good.
Had a coffee here and it was decent. Slower time of day mid afternoon but should be cozy place. I have been to the one in Cyrville road for take out but not for about a year now so looked at the sconewich menu and it seemed to be higher than i remembered and not sure increase in price or New Edinburgh a higher priced location
Amazing scones! Very reasonably priced and healthy food. Soups, salads, sandwiches. Café atmosphere.
Very great atmosphere for relaxing with friends over an extended brunch. That servers don't clear the table both let me leisurely enjoy my company but also grated on my desire for clean spaces. If the worst thing about it is I had to move my own dirty dishes then I'll be back. More...
Best scones you will ever eat. Great spot to have a fresh hand prepared breakfast. Don’t miss it when in Ottawa.
The absolute best scones and scone-witches! Highly recommend the scone-witches and a sweet scone with cream and jam.
The very best scones ever.
Has the most incredible scones and wonderful staff!
I can't get enough off their vanilla scones with clotted cream and preserves!
Had the best jam of my entire life here (ginger rhubarb!) And the scones are fantastic.
Scones on the small size but tasty.
The mealwitch is really good, as was the watermelon gazpacho I had. The staff is friendly but I felt they were distracted. Nevertheless it was a pleasant place to work for the afternoon, the coffee was ok, and the smell of baking scones is fantastic. More...
Very tasty fish chowder, great to warm up on a cold day. Scones are very nice too.
The sconewitch is a great little cafe near Elgin in the beautiful city of Ottawa. I've only been once but I would definitely go again. They have numerous types of both sweet and savoury scones that are freshly made in house. You can eat them there for breakfast or you can take them to go! They also make different types of jams, jellies and marmalade to accompany the scones! More...
I've been here twice now, visiting from the GTA, and all I can say is that I wish we had a location here! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great service. Seating is somewhat limited and lines can be long, as the first time I came in, the line was almost out the door. The second time I came by was around 10am on a weekday, so there wasn't a line and there were even a few free seats. Food is delicious, and every scone I've tried was tasty. The breakfast with eggs, a scone, a salad, and your choice of protein/side was delicious and pretty filling, but maybe not the cheapest. Worth it though, I think, as a treat! More...
Great food and service.
Great scones. A variety of flavors and selection of jams. Their breakfast plates with eggs, scone and coffee are a great way to start a winter's day.
Scone and Latte were very good. I appreciate they have a water decanter as well. The real plates/cups is a great touch. They did mess up and forget to bring one of our orders and we had to remind them we were still waiting, but the situation was corrected quickly. Also very reasonable prices (under $10 for a scone and a latte). Good atmosphere. We were there over lunch and had not problem finding a table More...
Quiet place, great location. Good service and clean place. Nice for a weekend breakfast. Best place of scones!!!
Scones and toppings are great, fruit was very fresh, loved it.
Tried one of their brunch with smoked salmon; cheddar scone was great & came even better with rhubarb jam.
Herman de Waal
Generally unfriendly staff, but delicious scones.
My favorite place. Awesome food.
Best scones in Ottawa.
Quite expensive but good
It was yummy. A little expensive for the weekend brunch but it was very good.
Superb scones and other baked goods. I’ve not had their sandwiches but they look and smell delicious! Relaxed atmosphere, it can get busy but the wait is not usually too long. I had to take a star off because even though the coffee is delicious the take out cups are horrible - the coffee always drips all over my hands and down my arm. So, if you want to enjoy their yummy coffee, be sure to bring your own travel mug! More...
A little pricey but I must say one of the best scones I've ever had!
Yummy brunch! The rhubarb ginger jam is amazing.
Pumpkin scone was delicious!
We visited the place with my friend around 5 pm in the middle of the week. It was looking so cozy and inviting, so we both took a risk to try. We ordered "Herb and Onion" and scone eith with Ham & cheese. We were given the order number and offered to pick up a table. We were served very fast and like the taste of the scones. During our stay the server came twice to remove the dishes, for sure we will be back. The Sconewitch has met our expectations. More...
Yummy that’s all needed to say
cozy little spot that actually surprisingly big on the inside without loosing any of that cozy feel, very bright huge windows allow tons of natural light. kind staff. I would recommend the BLT with pesto it was good the first time I got it years ago its just as good now. More...
Scones are amazing. A little pricey but worth it, none other compare. Other coffee shops sells them but they are often super dry. Stick to SconWitch for your scone cravings. More...
Salés ou sucrés, ce sont les meilleurs scones que je connaisse. On peut même en acheter congelés pour faire cuire à la maison.
This place is weird, you wouldn't really want to meet anyone here for business because there's a giant crooked painting of John Lennon and Santa Clause on the wall (unless your business likes to roll like that), but the food is great and the staff is a delightful collection of friendly alternative/queer people. It's right next to a great little bookstore and is in a great location generally so it's a nice spot to hang out with artsy student types or your weird progressive hippie grandparents. Prices are pretty good and standard for a non-chain cafe. More...
Great scones and lovely service...just a bit pricey. One of those places you go as a very occasional treat.
Warm and inviting place. These guys do a good scone however the coffee was a bit below par for me. Staff were efficient and courteous. Grab a seat on the long bench by the window and watch the world go by. More...
Was amazing the staff is super fun and friendly. Great coffee and the scones are amazing! Who knew you could do so much with a scone.
Best scones around!
You like scones Then this is the ONLY place you need to go. Best sconces ever!!!
From Japan:)Great atmosphere friendly staff tasty food!
I had breakfast here. It was very nice.
Fun and friendly place, and fantastic scones. Scones are a little bit small but that way, you can try more flavors without feeling too guilty. ;) We've had their "scone witch" with mushroom ragout (Husband: Why don't we ever cook a mushroom ragout? It's sooo good!), savoury scone with turkey ham and Stilton cheese (very nice combination that I have to try at home, too), another savoury scone with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and salad, and two sweet scones (orange-cranberry and lemon-poppyseed). Seems like a lot of food, but as I mentioned - the scones are not large (and it was our brunch, after all). One minus for coffee which is not bad but rather average. But I have to add another plus for the service...Prompt and very nice. More...
Delicious food and friendly staff!!
Glad we found this restaurant. Great fresh food. We had a mealwitch, delicious! We'll make a point to vist again when were in Ottawa.
Absolutely fabulous oatmeal scone with Devon cream and blueberry-raspberry jam!!
Tried the cheddar scone with apricot jam...seriously awesome combination. Super flaky with a golden crust.
Great scones and jam
The food was amazing! I will definitely visit again!
Every time we visit Ottawa we come to this place. They have a great coffee, fresh backed goods and their scones are so delicious. Worth the waiting time in the morning. More...
Delicious but $$
De très bon scones.
My parents have gone on and on about this place. I finally stopped in and had a scone. OMFG! I left with a dozen.
$14 for brunch, you get to select from an array of scones and jams. It's delicious!
The scone here is sooo nice. We ordered sconewitch with salmon and mealwitch with mushroom rago. Both are really delicious! But you might have to wail in a long line if you come here in weekend. More...
Love, love, love. The mushroom ragout is beyond delicious and their scones are incredible. The breakfast is literally the best, and I am only sad that I only get here a couple of times a year when I am in Ottawa on business.
