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

Beaver Tails are super good, delicious and yummie!!! However, for some people it might be too sweet.

We had the cinnamon sugar with lemon and the skor cheesecake. The cinnamon sugar was nice and light where the cheesecake one was overly sweet. Stick to the cinnamon sugar ones
