These are individually made hot pastries with toppings such as nutella & banana, cinnamon & sugar, peanut butter, etc. They are addicting, have one & you'll want more! They have 2 stores in Banff. A must try, unique desert.

Tried the beaver tail and it was really good. everything was good except the way they operate is a bit odd. You order and pay first and line up to get your food after that. The line up was in the way of the display case and menus. So it was hard to see the different flavours of icecream. The... More

The first time we had a Beavertail it was in Quebec City. The one today was just as excellent as the first time. Gooey and sweet and warm and crunchy. Do yourself a favour and go and get one. They are authentic Canadiana food.

Stopped by here after looking at "eat" selections on trip advisor and decided to give it a go. Very clean place, very friendly staff. Our family of four shared two tails, and they were very good but definitely not enough for the four of us with one "just" teen and a 10 year old - lol. Will definitely be going... More

Oh dear-these look and taste so unhealthy...but amazing! We didn't know what they were so went for dessert after dinner one night (on Banff Avenue). I had a nutella beaver tail and my husband went for cinnamon. Both were like flat donut/churro type treats and tasted great! Quick friendly service too. A perfect junk food dessert treat :)
