Always a treat to stop and have a beavertail... winter like summer. An Ottawa icon that should be on your "must try" list.

Tasty. Like a big flat donut with deliciousness piled on top. I ate all of mine and most of my wife’s. We were walking a lot so it’s ok (well that’s what I tell myself)

Visited this place on recommendation of our bus driver and tour guide. Not disappointed, service was freindly and prompt. We had a mixed beaver tail, half with Garlic and the other half with Cinammon. Tasted super and we were both over the moon. Reminded me...More
