The beaver tails are pretty good - a fun thing to do in Banff. There was a line to get in but it wasn't a long wait. Funny to see so many people standing outside of the shop eating their beaver tails!

Having lived in Canada many years ago I knew about beaver tails and just had to have one(ok, so 2!). The ones in Banff are certainly bigger than the ones in BC and a great Canadian invention!

A cross between a donut and a pastry with a choice of delectable toppings... Canadian fare, yum yum.. Main St in Banff

We were told to try a beaver tail, as it's a local "treat". Found the shop easy enough and ordered one each, a maple butter one and the apple and cinnamon one. Both were freshly made for us, and given a very generous helping of the toppings.

I won't give away too much as discovering what they are is part of the fun, but I can report that they taste delicious, sweet and sticky!

I thought it was also very good value and you could certainly share one amongst two of you, plus they had a very nice selection of drinks both hot and cold.

No where to sit inside but the street has seating, but my biggest tip is to make sure you grab a few extra paper towels!

Small counter service spot, friendly staff and your chance to try an iconic Canada snack food. The original version is the best. Surprisingly excellent coffee as well (most of the time, pending who's working). Can be very crowded and slow on summer afternoons.
