When in Rome, do as the Romans. When in Ottawa - eat a beavertail.
Found year-round at the Byward market (and all over town during Winterlude), these flat-as-a-pancake, flaky pastries are served hot and delicious. Cinnamon sugar, maple butter, chocolate swirl...delicious!
A must try.

I actually had the fun beaver tails (like an elephants ear with cinnamon) while skating on the Rideau canal along with excellent hot chocolate. Definitely a local treat to enjoy!

After 2.5 hours on the ice with the family we ended the day with some beaver tails. We tried three different types and while all were good the general consensus was that the cinnamon and sugar was the clear winner. Look forward to doing it all again.

It should be criminal to pass through Ottawa without stopping for a beaver tail. The absolute best. Why not grab a hot chocolate too?!

If you are not from Canada you must try this however please keep in mind that this is almost like fast food there is no waitress and few places to sit.
