Lines can be long at time, but well worth the wait. Staff are quick and efficient. Try anything with chocolate on it! Beaver Tails are the first thing I go for when I get to Banff.

Tried the cheese cake beaver tail and it's so delicious! Sweet but tasty! Fell guilty about the calories but worth it!

Poutine was as good as the beaver tail! A bit expensive but worth it if you’re in town! Young server was very friendly and we didn’t have to wait long. Very crunchy pastry.

We tried a beaver tail as an after dinner snack. The make them when you order so it was right out of the fryer and delicious. These remind me of the elephant ears you can buy at the state fair. Ours was plain, but they...More

It's probably a good job we didn't discover Beaver Tails earlier in our trip as we'd have put on a lot more weight than we already did. Go try it out, they're amazing!!
