Ranked #5 of 29 restaurants in Lake Louise
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Bakery
Description: "Its a seasonal teahouse (like the Plane of 6 glaciers teahouse, which is listed on TripAdvisor), located on Lake Agnes in the Lake Louise area. A 2.5 mile hike brings you to this amazing little historic hut, perched on the rim of a cliff and looking over a lake to The Beehive and mountains beyond. So incredible to stumble across. Whats wonderful is that they have over 100 kinds of teas, good sandwiches and soups, and quite a selection of baked goods (gluten-free included!)".

In general, the Lake Louise visit is not to be recommended, although the view is world-class. It is just too crowded during the peak tourist season--even early in the morning we had difficulty here. But the Lake Agnes Teahouse needs to be managed better. It is one thing to have to wait in a long line--at least you know eventually... More

A perfect distance to walk, amazing views, and a lovely pot of tea at the top with scones. What's not to like?

We hiked the trail to the teahouse which left from Lake Louise. It is a two mile hike up 1300 feet of elevation. The trail is easily marked but it pretty much an uphill climb. You get to see a total of two lakes and a pretty waterfall. We didn't have time to visit the tea house but it certainly... More

I hear the apple crumble is to die for but we got there too late in the day and there was none left - but we had some amazing tea and a delicious lemon poppyseed loaf with amazing service and incredible views of Lake Agnus.

After quite a hard hike 3.8k uphill from Lake Louise, it was lovely to stop at Lake Agnes. The tea and scones were very welcome after the hike. Imagine getting all the provisions in and all the garbage out. Worth it just to provide us with very reasonably price food and drinks.

The hike from Lake Louise to the Lake Agnes Teahouse was gorgeous. There were various stops along the way where we could not believe the sights as we marveled at them, they were so majestic. We had bright blue skies to highlight the cathedral mountains and milky marine colors of Lake Louise so far below us. The trail is difficult,... More

We hiked up to the teahouse on a beautiful day. There were lots of people, but fortunately we managed to get a table. The tea, limonade and sandwiches we had were great. The view is stunning.

We 'hiked' from Lake Louise Inn to Lake Louise, Before continuing on to St Agnes and beyond to Little Beehive viewpoint. Brilliant views. Cafe pleasant but the views and exercise made it worthwhile. Brilliant.

We stopped for tea and cakes at this picturesque tea house after our hike up to Lake Agnes. It's amazing how well it is run (and how good the apple crumble is), if you consider the conditions under which they get all the supplies up there. And even though the girls running the place tell people from time to time... More

We made a point of getting up there early - later than we'd planned, but arrived at 10am. Got a seat on the patio, and were served nice scones, cookies, hot chocolate and tea, but the lemonade was distinctly average. By the time we left the area at 10:30am, the patio was full and the area swarming. I wouldn't bother... More
