I read about this place on Trip Advisor and decided to try it since we were walking by it while downtown the first night. WOW! We loved it! The cinnamon and sugar was great as well as the chocolate with powdered sugar. That was all we tried because we liked these so much. We had one for desert each night we were there. They were that good. The help was very friendly too. I am hoping they will catch on in the U.S. and we will see franchises here sometime!

This place serves fried dough in the shape of a beaver tail with an endless choice of toppings. If you need ice cream or gelato they have that as well. Service is nice and they stay open till everyone is served

Beaver tails are a fried pastry dough, flat and the size of a sub sandwitch, topped with sugar & toppings of your choice. Beaver tails are a specialty of this place. Chocolate banana topping has to be the best, and manageable. Apple cinammon topping was delicious but hard to control, got messy.

They have no place to sit, you have to go outside. That's the only drawback.

They have ice cream and hot dog etc. but the attraction is the beaver tails. We enjoyed the beaver tails. It's worth trying once.

Having heard rave reviews of Beaver Tails, we finally had a chance to try them in Banff. There was no lineup, which surprised me. The servers weren't particularly eager to attend, but no serious issue. We took the chocolate and banana tails. They cost around $7-8 depending on what you choose. Average sums up my impression taste-wise. A trace on the soggy side from the deep frying. I've tried one, probably wouldn't feel the urge to get another.
