Fried dough is good. There is not much else to say. It's kind of funny that it would be considered a restaurant. But you always know what you are going to get.

We stopped for a Beavertail while out and about as a rare, but tasty, and truly Canadian treat. They never disappoint (though I have found they seem to be getting smaller as time goes on !). Flat fried dough dredged in cinnamon sugar with a wedge of lemon .... sounds like dessert heaven to me !! Honestly, I look forward... More

Any visitor to Ottawa must try our infamous beavertails! The come in a variety of flavours, but to me the best is the classic maple butter...scrumptious!

When in Ottawa you have to stop for a beaver tail in the Market. There are several choices on the menu, but my favourite is chocolate hazelnut. It!s like a piece of pastry covered in your choice of topping. The perfect treat!

This is a bit pricey for deep fried dough and sugar. Nice treat once in a while for the kids. There wasn't any place to sit and eat.

A take out stand that makes wonderful deep fried doughy goodness. Sugar, lemon and cinnamon. Chive and cream cheese. Perfect in the winter with hot chocolate after a skate on the canal.

Enjoy a Beavertail any where they are sold but especially after a Winter time skate on the Rideau Canal. This is where they originated and it is still the best place to have one.

I have to admit that it has been a very long time since I've had a beavertail. These are excellent and kids will absolutely love them! I don't think you could possibly pick one that you won't like.

Visiting Ottawa for the first time I had to try Beavertails - somewhat of a local speciality I understand from friends. The place in Byward Market is in the centre of the action and I had a piping hot Classic Cinnamon and sugar, ready in a flash - fantastic. A must try when in town
