This downtown breakfast/brunch/lunch spot is a real gem. The smell of fresh-baked scones greets you as soon as you walk in the door. Service was fast, efficient and the food delicious, fresh and great presentation. The witch logo is fabulous and great branding. Please, please...More

I've had tuna salad on a savory scone here, and also their brunch (scrambled eggs on scone with side of bacon). Both were delicious. There aren't many tables and service is sedately paced, so if coming for lunch it's best to come earlier than noon.

This restaurant is not to be missed. The food is amazing and presented very nicely. The staff is always friendly. I visit as often as I'm in Ottawa. There is a great variety of scones and I always take a half dozen home with me.

Every time I visit ottawa I have to stop here. I haven't been able to find a scone or jam anywhere else that I've visited that compares to here. And the ham and eggs are also perfectly cooked. Please go here!

This small restaurant with limited seating specializes in scones with almost any flavour you can imagine and also provides enough additional food options to have a delicious and healthy meal for a family with two 13 year old boys. I had scrambled eggs topped with...More

I'm no expert when it comes to scones, but these are by far the best scones I've ever had. I've tried the plain, vanilla, and blueberry scones. All of which were delicious.
