So Yum!

Of course we had to try beaver tails while in Banff and they did not disappoint. I had one with chocolate and peanut butter pieces. It was so good and I definitely recommended it. They took a while to prepare though.

I was told by my companion that I am not a true Canadian if I had not tasted this trest offered by Beaver Tails. What is it really? There was a long line up as this place is tiny. No eat in. You look at the picture, they seem all yummy and you could have ordered all of them except... More

Great place to get something for your sweet tooth. Lots of different toppings to pick from. Very quick to get your order through. The only thing is they cheap out on the amount of toppings they give you.

Really, one must try a beaver tail. Fried dough and Nutella is never wrong :) The service was friendly and I really enjoyed such an indulgent treat. There is no seating indoors, but in summer there are a few tables outside to enjoy the shade.

First time visiting this place, I would suggest the cinnamon sugar beaver tail. My husband had the nutella, peanut butter, recess's and it was too much sauce, too large and looked a little disgusting.

I have raved about Beaver Tails to everyone since we went on holiday to Banff last summer. It is the most delicious dessert I've ever had. Ridiculously good on the taste buds, regardless that the staff weren't all that great, I can't knock the rating! If there's 2 things i'd do in Banff, its the National Park and a Beaver... More

Had my first one in Ottawa and I just dream about them. The plain cinnamon and sugar is all I need. If I want something sweeter, I go for the Maple butter - mmmm...
