A little on the pricey side but the best scrambled eggs I had in a very long time. Great scones and decent coffee. Fun place!

I love going to the SconeWitch for lunch. My go-to is definitely the ham Sconewitch on a cheese scone with a side salad! I can never seem to leave without picking up a box of scones to take to friends or family!
