If your in Ottawa, never miss this Beavertail Pastry. Small stall on the street in Byward Market, It has lots of toppings to choose from. My group love it so much that we came back for more next day. And you have to stand in line to buy it whether late night or morning. I spend like around 7 dollars... More

Beavertails is a Canadian icon, and Ottawa is the original (even though it has moved to opposite end of the market. It used to be where Provence cafe is, which is another must-visit). Simple lemon and cinnamon sugar tail is my favourite.

Beavertails are a flattened pastry with pretty much every topping you can think of. The most popular and delicious are the cinnamon and sugar variety. To die for!!!

This is first time for us to try the beavertail. We ordered apple cinnamon. It tasted very rich. You feel to sweet at first then you get addicted. The guy at the cashier was very nice and gave us the beavertail very quickly. It was really appreciated since it was already very cold in Ottawa. Recommended.

This is a truly delicious Canadian treat. I love Beavertails, it is a must every time I am in Ottawa (or in Niagara Falls which I recently found out has one). My favorite is the basic cinnamon and sugar. There is a large variety to choose from but I have been eating this for over 30 years and love the... More

A fantastic end to a great evening. Hazelnut spread on a delicious beaver tail pastry! Thought my wife would bite my hand off for another nibble! Great staff even offered their portable heater to my wife.
