We heard that beaver tails are a Canadian thing so we had to try one. They are fried dough but at this place you can get a variety of toppings. We enjoyed one after our dinner meal. They also have gelato.

If you are eating dinner downtown, skip dessert and take a walk over here for dessert. Kind of like a thick crepe/funnel cake, with different accoutrements on top of it. Very good!
