You can't miss with these things... they are delicious! Thin and crispy, with a wide variety of toppings to fit your preferences.

Cinnamon and sugar reminded us of "elephant ears" from county fairs in the States. The chocolate and peanut butter with Reese's Pieces had no known comparison. We shared the two among a family of four and everyone was happy.
Cost about $5-7 per tail and it takes a few minutes for them to prepare. These do not travel well so find a bench nearby.

There was a very long line up when we went the first time. We waited and service was slow but they make it to order. It slows down when groups order many different things (fries, smoothie, gelato, hot dog, and beaver tails) as there are only two workers on to do everything. The wait was well worth it! We had a #2 nutella, and a #7 icing with oreo cookie crumbs. It was so delicious that we went back a few days later and thankfully there was a short line.

Having read several favourable reviews about Beaver Tails we tried it out on three separate occasions and were not disappointed. Great flavours of ice cream - not excellent but, nonetheless, very good.

We were looking for dessert after dinner on Banff Avenue, saw people walking by eating the fried dough. We traced it to the store. It's more of a frozen yogurt place. We had to try the beaver tail, so ordered a cinnamon and sugar to share, as it looked too big for one person. It was so yummy that my 4-1/2-year old daughter decided to have it all by herself. We ended up making it a ritual of getting one after dinner everyday when we were in Banff. Try it and don't wait till the last day, or you will regret it.
