Had to stop and try one and we were so glad we did! Delicious, light and fluffy - it's a perfect afternoon treat.

Nothing like a hot sweet crisp beaver tail while walking down banff Avenue! Delicious! We had a half and half, the #3 maple and the tried and true cinnamon & sugar! Almost beats a funnel cake.

They could easily use another person cooking the tails but EH what do I know. We waited in line for our beavertails and I must say all four of us enjoyed them. It is a dough that is deep fried then you pick the select...More

The large pastries (a.k.a. Beaver Tails) were a huge hit with our group! Several couples shared a single pastry and the ability to choose a different topping for each end was a perfect arrangement. The pastries were fried and dressed on the spot resulting in...More
