I have boughten from this place several times and have always enjoyed it! I never remember how large they are though, and could probably share one instead of a have a whole one to myself!

My first trip to Canada and one of my 'things to do' was try a beaver tails. My husband, son and I all tried different ones so we could try a selection. My husband's cinnamon and sugar was awesome and my son's apple and cinnamon...More

I had seen this place online before my trip to the Rockies, so I had to stop. I had the original beaver tail with cinnamon. It was delicious! If I would have been in Banff longer I would have tried some of the other varieties....More

If you are eating dinner downtown, skip dessert and take a walk over here for dessert. Kind of like a thick crepe/funnel cake, with different accoutrements on top of it. Very good!

Don't expect to come out of here with a trim waistline, but the beaver tails (fried dough topped with a variety of sweets like maple sugar sauce or caramel or nutella) are worth it. Delicious treat after a day of hiking around Banff National Park.

Heard people talking about this and hence bought the apple flavoured pastry and gave it a try. Its absolutely delicious. A must try when in Canada.

We were excited to try this and maybe the superb reviews skewed expectations, but we bought beaver bites with ice cream and were disappointed. It is simply donut holes and not that amazing.

An excellent treat to share at the end of a day of hiking and exploring. Definitely a messy pastry, so grab an extra napkin. We appreciated that you could try out a few flavor combos on the pastry, which worked great for sharing.

Beaver Tail was recommended as a taste treat and it was. The hard part was deciding which topping out of the many choices. Each is freshly made as you wait, and quite delicious.
