We had to try one because of the name and we were not disappointed. There are many toppings but we just had cinnamon and sugar. The place was crowded but there is another one down the street on the opposite side that wasn't as busy.

I know this place is known for their Beaver Tails (deep fried dough covered in your choice of sweet toppings), but I recommend you get an order of the French fries. The were seasoned perfectly and could be eaten without ketchup. My whole family kept stealing my fries and I was lucky to get a ¼ of what I ordered.... More

First time having beaver tails and it was delicious! I thought it would be a thick dough and that it would be wayyyy too sweet, but it was perfect! The dough was light and crispy, and oh so tasty. I'd go again!

Fast and delicious- we got beaver tails several times in our week in Banff. The apple cinnamon and cinnamon and sugar were our favorites.

You have to try these. They are fantastic. I had a Cinnamon-Sugar & Lemon Beaver Tail. A beaver tail is a piece of a puff-pastry shaped, you guessed it, like a beaver tail and about the same size. The store offers many varieties, but this is the one I just had to try. It sounded strange, but the combination is... More

They do it so well. I recommend the one with lemon and cinnamon sugar. Perfect blend. Gooey once the sugar melts with the lemon. Parents like the good old original. Hot and crunchy sweet they are great any day.

Wonderful sweet sugary snack which fills your sugar needs for a day at least. People will give you a cup of water to help wash it down you can get many combinations and they will do half and half.

Huge. Covered in icing. Pick your own candy. Toss it all on a warm, football sized fried funnel cake. The Banff location also served ice-cream, though there is no way we could have possibly eaten another bite after the amazing BeaverTails!

You absolutely must go here and get the Beaver Bites!! I think we went there three times in 5 days they were so good!! Other people in our group got the Mint Ice Cream, and Beaver Tails and they loved those items as well.

I've been here a bunch of times and everything I've had has been great. Great gelato, great fries, and most importantly great beaver tails. Never had a single complaint. Go here. No seriously. Go. It's awesome.
