The beaver tails is Canadian-specific pastry with variation of filling to satisfy any taste. Very tasty between a beigne (New Orleans specialty) and Chinese donut. Recommended.

Sunday evening just after a delicious dinner on the market decided to stop here for dessert. Enjoyed the Maple Butter Beaver Tail after dinner. Was very delicious and quick service.

If you haven't had one you HAVE to try one. Lots of choices and reasonably priced. Highly recommend trying the apple and cinnamon and the cinnamon sugar

A must have when in Ottawa as it's in the heart of the market. Apple and cinnamon is hard to beat. You'll find it very convenient if your downtown shopping. Great way to get a snapshot of the market district.

I got a beaver tail with nutella and banana, my favorite and the price was very reasonable. Definitely this is a must stop for any future visit to Ottawa, as... More

This was a real treat after our lunch at the Chateau. Lots of flavours to pick from. Nice hot sugary powdered beaver tail with bananas was good on every bite. Very yummy.

This is a decadent treat. Strips of deep fried bread dough, covered in cinnamon and sugar. Don't even think about it if you're trying to count calories. But man, if you want a cheat day from your diet, this is definitely worth it! The kiosk is easily found in the Byword Market year round, and for less than $5 you... More
