No visit to Ottawa is complete without a stop at the Beaver Tail vendor. Delicious pastries topped the way you want. Sit outside on the stools and enjoy the ambiance - often there will be a street performer nearby to enjoy.

If you want to try real Canadian fun food, this is the place. While their poutine is very good, their beaver tail pastry is to die for. This is definitely not for the calories-minded. Beaver tails can be eaten as they come or they can...More

Everyone needs to try this at least once. The cinnamon and lemon is yummy. Apparently, the beaver tails can be taken home and reheated in the oven the next day.

Just amazing, I only wish they didn't put the calories next to each option!! Banana and chocolate was delicious, as was chocolate hazelnut. A short queue but moved quickly, not much seating but loads on the area opposite in the market so not an issue

Eating by the market, looking the fresh food and people around is fantastic! The Cinnamon, sugar and lemon beavertail is gorgeous!

The cinnamon sugar with lemon beavertail is a little piece of heaven in my opinion. Don't let a cold Ottawa winter pass without stopping in.

What a fabulous place to treat the family for a reasonable price. Tried the banana chocolate, apple cinnamon, and skor cheesecake, couldn't pick a favorite. They were all so tasty. The service was great, all the servers were happy and smiling even though extremely busy....More
