I was excited to have the half cinnamon-lemon and half chocolate but they refused my order. An order that i used to always have as a kid back home in Montreal. I told them that i am ok with paying extra and they still refused, not sure what the problem was, It wasnt just one employee but the whole staff.... More

When in Ottawa, you need to indulge in at least one beaver tail. Yummy, have the original with a good sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar, team it with a coffee and you will be buzzing for the rest of the day

We actually went here a few times on our trip, because it was so good! They have 10 types to choose from, and they sell drinks. Very affordable, and two people could easily split one beaver tail. Staff were really nice. There are tables and chairs to sit at, and at night there was a man playing music for patrons.

It's a nice little pastries but it is very sweet. I got myself one with Oreo and vanilla icing and it was really tasty

If you have never had a beaver tail, you cannot leave Ottawa without going to the Beaver Tails Pastries booth at the Byward Market! I'd say you can't go wrong with any of the flavours! Just to be sure, order 2 for yourself!

Yeah there's nothing bad about beaver tails. Truly Canadian and make you want more. The Cinnamon sugar is always a crowd pleaser but it's never bad to adventure into new flavours. The price point is the only downfall cause you want so many but 5.50 is quite steep

We stopped by the Beaver tail stand and bought a beaver tail to bring home to our daughter. After we told him it would traveling in luggage for 13 hours he packed well. I am glad to say it made it home in one piece, no mess. She tells me it was delicious .

Thank knolting
