An Ottawa tradition for any tourist or local who loves a special sweet. If you've never tried one, you really MUST!

Great variety for all tastes. Worth the line up so don't despair as the ordering/serving goes fast. We love it when they are set up on the canal in winter too

We had the cinnamon sugar Beavertails. Friendly, efficient staff. Beavertails served nice and hot. Small sitting area clears out fairly quickly. Yummy treat in the Byward Market
