It's been two days since I got back to the US and I'm trying to figure out how to get a beavertail delivered. Wow! Go for the cinamon sugar with lemon. You'll be hooked.

I have lived in Ottawa for the past 23 years, however I love going to the Market and treating myself and my kids to a Beaver tail. This is a pastry - deep fried, and very delicious. It is a bit pricy for this kids of pastry, but this is a treat and a must if you are visiting Ottawa.... More

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

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.
