A perfect treat after a skate on the Canal or a pleasant stroll through the Byward Market. A Killaloe Sunrise (cinnamon sugar and lemon juice) makes my tummy every time.

Beaver Tails is a must do when in Ottawa, located in The Byward Market, Beaver Tails is an indulgent treat, our favorite is the Skor Bar Beaver Tail. Service is quick and friendly, unfortunately there isn't much seating to be had so be ready to take it and go. Prices are reasonable and portion size is generous.

You can't leave Ottawa without having a Beaver Tail. It is a tradition. I just like the original. You don't have to get fancy.
