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!)".

Someone told us we had walked the equivalent of 129 storeys so be warned before you set out to visit this lovely teahouse. It really is worth the walk and there is a varied menu to choose from, the prices are reasonable and the staff friendly

We hiked up with our two year old daughter this weekend. It took us an hour and a half up and an hour down. Pack a water bottle and wear layers. The tea was fabulous and so were the desserts. I would do this again in a minute. The views are amazing.

We rode up on horseback. A painfull experience for the untrained. The views and setting are awe inspiring. The little teahouse is rustic but a welcome sight for a rest and a light beverage to take in the tranquility of it all.

A great workout with a great reward at the end!! I'm late 40's and out of shape. If I can do it, so can you. The first portion of the hike is the steepest, but your legs will be burning the whole wast and you will be breathing heavy (there, now you have been warned, but GO ANYWAYS!!!! Lovely hike!... More

The trail to Lake Agnes leads up from the hotel and lakeside, along a well defined path stretching steadily uphill all the way. The teahouse at the top is manned / open till late, as the staff reside in accommodation nearby. The views are stunning, both of Lake Agnes itself and back down the valley to Lake Louise. A great...

Consider everything here need to be brought up by man, the price tag here is still in a reasonable ranger. It is a good place to take some rest , have a light lunch meal, have some tea and enjoy the view.

A lovely walk to the tea house and spectacular views at Lake Agnes. Limited menu but considering everything is hiked up and no electric it was a good refreshment and worth the walk to it

We hiked an hour an twenty minutes to the Tea House. It was icey in places so it was slow going up and down. Upon arrival, we were able to share a table with a couple from England. We enjoyed some nice conversation before our lunch arrived. The tomato vegetable soup was very good. The apple crumble was our highlight.... More

This quirky little hut serves tea and snacks and is quite a novelty perched half way up a mountain at the side of Lake Agnes. You have to take your rubbish away with you because there are no garbage collections and the outhouses are quite an experience - but still welcome when you need to go after your several cups... More

Great views. Tea was very good especially after the hike. Leave early to beat the crowd. We got started around 8:30 and arrived at the teahouse around 10 am. Going back down around 11 am and the crowd was starting to come up. Biscuits and soup were very good.
