With the canal closed there must of been less locations available. We would of liked to get one but the line up was 50 deep. Hopefully they will open more!

Stopped by to get a beaver tail after a night downtown on the canal, and of course the Beaver tails were amazing. The service was great.

Don't worry about long lines, they move quickly and you are getting fresh warm treat at the end. Have tried them all but the original is still my favorite at the end of a skate on the canal.

Just perfect for the winter feeling and for being transported back to childhood - one is never too old for too grown up to love them.

Worth the wait in line. An excellent unique pastry. My suggestion: Stick to the original, cinnamon and sugar. Not for the calorie conscious. If you go to Winterlude in Ottawa, it's a must to get a beavertail. 'Course there is always one in the Byward Market and a couple of other spots in the city, if you want one other... More

A stop at Beaver tails is a pleasure. Choose from any option and the end result is licking lips and fingers. Totally delicious!

The Beaver Tails are a main stay snack or meal on the go for everyone in the Market area. They always seem to get it right. Big fav is the double cheddar and garlic for me, but the rest of the family jump on the cinnamon and sugar.

Very yummy, I choose the cinnamon one after skating on the canal. Definitely worth a try and paired with a hot chocolate is the way to go

anytime in Ottawa always look for a beavertail, on the canal long line-ups but we found they move very fast. Those people in the back are on fire getting them served. The location at the .8 check mark was the fastest
