As a proud Canadian I always take my friends from out of Canada to Beavertails. We are never disappointed! The original (just sugar) is my favourite, but they are all great!

Gotta try it while in Canada! My wife loved the Nutella one, while I ordered one with just cinnamon and banana. Was fun to try, and one day when we go back to Banff we'll get them again.

Gooey, yummy, fried pasty goodness, particularly with the Nutella chocolate or with maple, or with both! : ) A truly yummy dessert, but not for the faint of heart - fat and sugar in copious quantities, but oh so good...if you're skiing or hiking all day, you're all good because you cannot miss this treat!

I had No 6, was pure heaven for my sweet tooth! Had to re sample just to make sure the next day! Will definitely be going again when we visit next time.

When we come to Banff, we always have to do a little stop for a treat. Beaver Tails are the best if you want something sweet but not too heavy.

As we were strolling down downtown Banff, we decided to stop at Beaver Tails, and have a authentic Canadian treat. I tried the N°7 coco value, the dough was nice but a little crunchier than I thought it would have been... it was covered with vanilla icing, drizzled with chocolate and sprinkled with crushed Oreo bits ( IF YOU ARE...

I had heard about these but never expected them to be sooooo good.But THEY ARE JUST YUM. I had one with hot Nutella and Banana on, it was the most wonderful thing I have ever got all over me! Even had an apple and cinnamon one the next day. Wish like mad they would come to Australia.

Delicious chewy dough covered in a starry sky of cinnamon and sugar. The only way to eat this delicious Canadian treat. I'm no hunter, but I would gladly kill beavers all day if the tails tasted like this. You need to get here if you haven't tried them and if you have, you're nodding your head in agreement right this... More

Overall - DO NOT IGNORE THIS PLACE. This place has delicious food and drinks. There are two locations on both sides of the streets. Take your pick. We enjoyed their service and hospitality. Good - They have pastries and drinks. We tried and instantly got hooked on their hot chocolate. They also have hot and cold dessert options and snacks... More
