Coming from Ottawa, it's nice to treat ourselves to a Beaver Tail in downtown Victoria! Our fave is the Killaloe Sunrise - cinnamon, sugar and freshly squeezed lemon! mmm

Tasty calorie filled treat, a guilty pleasure for sure. It is crazy busy even in the evening but if you have a sweet tooth you must try one.

BeaverTails' iconic whole-wheat pastries are stretched by hand to resemble the tail of a beaver, one of Canada's best known national symbols. The pastries are then cooked on canola oil and served piping hot, topped with butter and a choice of delectable flavours. The BeaverTails menu has expanded to include a diverse list of snack options including our signature pastries, poutine, and gelato.
