Whether you're a foodie or not, here's an Ottawa staple: the Beaver Tail.

It was here, in Ottawa, that the first Beaver Tail point of sale was launched, circa the late 1970s.

Nowadays, the popular bakeries Beaver Tails are available at over 140 points of sale in Canada and the United States, including amusement parks such as La Ronde. The city of Québec is one of the places where they are eaten the most.

If you don't like pastries and sugar, we suggest you still go and see what it's all about. You are facing a true institution in downtown Ottawa.

This is the perfect location for selfies!
