Famous pastries from Ottawa. Must try for everyone. Unhealthy, sweet with milions calories, but just awsome! At least once, but probably you will want more ;)

Great Canadian invention of Beaver Tails really Rock!! This is deep fried pastry with various toppings. You can get cinnamon, apple, chocolate etc My favorites are apple or chocolate, I like them both equally. There are only a few places to buy this, Byward Market or when Rideau Canal is open and sometimes the location is mobile at certain events... More

This is usually one of the first stops when visiting Ottawa. The stand always seems to be open but don't expect to sit in a restaurant this is a street stand.

Drizzle the lemon juice liberally! Located in the heart of the market and worth the wait and close to it all.

Beaver tails are rivaled only by butter tarts and nanimo bars as the best desserts and this location makes great beaver tails fresh, hot, light and perfectly coated with cinnamon and sugar

We are seniors and so we shared one beaver tail. It was super delicious. We only had the original type. There are tons of different ones available, but the original is so good we think we made the right choice.

Once you have tasted a beaver tail you cannot resist to get another one when ever you pass by a beaver tail stand.
