These are just so good. Service is quick. They come out hot and delicious. One is the perfect size to share after dinner and they'll do you a half-and-half split of any flavours you like. What's not to love?

Very Canadiana. Don’t see them much on West Coast so we always grab on when travelling. Ice Cream was good too. As Punky Brewster once said: “Lay off my Beaver Tail”

It's always so busy inside and for good reason. I haven't tried anything but the beaver tails here, but I'm ok with that. I went safe and got the cinnamon and sugar one, but it was so good. What a treat!

My first encounter with a Beaver...tail went better than expected. The pastry was thin and light. We tried two - one with a sweet blend of chocolate and banana and another with Reese's pieces. So delicious.

This is something you must do in Banff. It is a fried pastry with different toppings available. I'd recommend they open for breakfast, but we stopped in several times during our visit. Great dessert.

If you're a sweet tooth you can't visit Banff without having a Beavertail. They are absolutely delicious. So good we sought out other Beavertail outlets in our travels but unfortunately the ones in Whistler and Vancouver had close. We went with the Nutella and banana...More

We love beaver tails. They are such a Canadian thing and we get them almost every time we see a little stand. They can be a little pricey depending on the area, but this one was reasonable. Our pastries came promptly and they were nice...More
