A must visit for Ottawa! This business started here in the Valley, and makes a great snack or dessert! Try the killaloe sunrise!

This is a local favorite. The fried dough is topped with your choice of various toppings. You can even get combos. I got Cinnamon & Sugar on one half and Apples and Carmel on the other half. You can get them to go too.

These tasty dessert pastries are delicious! My favourite is the Killaloe Sunrise. We recently had 2 international students visiting from Germany and Japan and they had heard of them even before their visit. Beavertails is world famous and with good reason!! They are yummy!!

if you are in the market area in Ottawa, you need to have a beaver tail. Lots of variety and always good. I like the basic cinnamon and sugar. Worth the wait if there is a line.
