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

We tried the one with cinnamon, sugar, and lemon. The lemon was such an interesting add. We loved it! I wish we had beaver tails in California.

I presume they got their name of the pastries they serve. It's known for a kind of pastry that looks like a beavertail. It's sweet and there are several toppings available like maple syrup or cinnamon. It's just awesome!

The ice cream so very good. Tried the gingerbread ice cream, it was amazing. My husband had the apple cinnamon beaver tail we all really enjoyed it. The only thing that would make this place any better would be a few tables to sit at.

We have stopped at Beaver Tails in Collingwood ON and in Banff AB and we have fallen in culinary love with this fried dough delight. Most often we stick to the cinnamon and sugar but on occasion change up the toppings .
