May🍦2021 Our first time to this place. We went for ice cream but my daughter tried the beaver tail this place is known for and thought it was really good. Lots of choice for hard ice cream and gelato. Small container looks small but it...actually had plenty in it. If you want to try two flavors of ice cream in the same cup it's an extra charge of $2.More

Perfect place to stop by at the end of a wonderful day in Banff. The Beavertails are a must have. Even better when you go as a couple and can share each others. Currently (Mar 2021) they are open but restricting the number of guests...inside at a time. You have to take your Beavertails to go.More

Due To The Pendemic I was a Little unsure if I could go in to Order a Bevertail but saw a Note on the Door 2 People only in at a time. No Line but 2 to 4 other People After my Dad and I...were Very good and Waited till My Dad and I were done outside. We Shared a Apple Pie one as I Thought it was Called Apple Cinnamon and Enjoyed it. I had it in Ottawa Too and in Edmonton when they Started in a Mobile one. The lady was very nice to Divide it in half and the Hot Chocolate was good only thing it just came in one Size Small as I Wouldn't have minded a Medium size cup as she said it's the best we have but said it's ok but could have Medium sized Cups too. It was lots of fun and would Always try to go there again.More

Beavertails were perfectly cooked and well dressed with toppings. Friendly staff. Clean. Easy to get surrounded by shops. Great dessert to walk down the street with on a cold day.

I love love love Beaver tails, start with the classic cinnamon sugar and then branch out from there, you will not regret it. The poutine and other items are pretty good but I mainly go for the beaver tails

You can’t go to Banff & not try a beaver tail at least once! I ended up getting one every day! My favourite is the hazel amour, I find it just the perfect amount of sweet. Some of the other ones while still very good...are also very sweet. The poutine is worth trying to! They have two locations both on the Main Street.More

We went here with a couple guys for an evening snack. The beavertails desserts with ice cream on top was a delicious way to top off a great night. Would highly recommend!

We had to try them as we had heard about them in a travel show. We were not disappointed and would highly recommend them.

The Avalanche with caramel, sour and cream cheese on a beaver tail...sitting outside on the street gazing at beautiful mountains is the best!

If you’ve ever tried a BeaverTails before then you know how delicious they are and this is true to standard! We really prefer the classic or the Killaloe Sunrise and went more than once during our short stay!
