"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!)".

Nice place to realx after a good hike

The hike up to the Lake Agnes Tea House was beautiful (and tiring), but worth the effort. It was crowded the day we went. The menu is rather limited, but I can't imagine how it could be much different considering the location. They did have a nice assortment of teas from which to choose. We... read more

Beautiful views and a nice place to sit but the menu is very limited. We couldn't find anything that was gluten free for us to eat.

Limited menu but welcome sustenance after the climb to the tea house. Warm and filling food is delivered by helicopter drop or hiked up by the workers to the little hut! Fresh water from the clear beautiful lake used for the hot beverages. Toilet facilities limited.

The tea house at Lake Louise is one of the nicest destination hikes anywhere. It is a fairly basic, small building with nice views, a basic menu and fairly high prices. However, one must realize that everything must be carried up (by horse) - there are no roads. Despite the remote location, this place is busy on a nice summer... More

Decided to do this hike and was blown away by how amazing the scenery was going up. Once getting to the top, again was not expecting such a spectacular view! Had some apple crumble and a lemonade from the teahouse while admiring the view from the patio. Staff are super friendly. They do an amazing job to keep that place... More

After the brutal hike up, the tea house was a wonderful treat! I had the gluten free brownie and my husband had scones and jam. The apricot tea was perfect. BEWARE! They don't take plastic! Cash (Canadian or US) only!

I didn't like this teahouse as much as the Plain of six Glaciers one, but I am not really sure why. I think I liked my chai better at the other one, so that's really my only basis of comparison. They both have amazing views. We got more tea and apple crumble. the apple crumble was a little syrupy, but... More

The hike to this place isn't easy if you're not used to hiking at least sometimes, but the reward at the top is worth it! The view of and around Lake Agnes are breathtaking and the tea house is a must visit!

There are so many trails around Lake Louise. Many of those trails lead to the Teahouse. Once there, you will find a very courteous staff as well as freshly prepared food. Beware, they only accept cash.

The hike to the Tea House is moderately strenuous, but my husband and I are so glad we did it! The views are incredible, and the food and dining experience at the tea house are wonderful. I highly recommend this outing!
