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!)".

The tea house was just a part of the fun as the trip up is full of the most amazing scenery. My wife and I had to chuckle at the thought of being fit enough at the age of 53 to do this climb because when we got to the tea house it was full of seniors. Tea was fine... More

This was, by far, one of my best experiences in Canada. The beautiful hike up the mountain starts the experience. By the time you make it to the tea house in its breathtaking location, you've built up your appetite. They only have propane with which to make the food, so it's not 4 star or anything, but it is satisfying.... More

First off, beware of the chipmunks. They’re sneaking around under the tables and if you give them one little handout, they’ll be back. I gave one eager fellow a cashew and a minute later found him sitting on my shoe, demanding another treat. But that’s part of what makes the Lake Agnes Teahouse unique. Another thing is the wonderful setting.... More

We hiked to the agnes lake. The whole way up i was thinking what to order at the teahouse, as from the advetisements of the teahouse i had high expectations. We had to wait a long time to get a place and place our orders. (Self service would be a much better idea). We ordered soup and nachos. Nothing special.... More

Rigorous trail, steep incline and less 02 at >6500 to 7000 feet. Reward is a cozy mountain teahouse nestled in the tall conifers serving a variety of green teas and desserts. You will have strong quads and calves after this hike. Many middle aged and younger folks are breathless but panting for air and resting will bring its rewards. The... More

The reviewers who criticise the slow service are not allowing for the fact that facilities up this mountain are limited and the staff do their best to provide for their many visitors. Waiting and being chilled about the time it takes, is part of the experience. Pretend you've turned the clock back 100 years. Great choice of teas - wow!... More

Lovely location but waitress service not quick. Self service would be better and would help with seating, which limited, as many waiting to order and blocking seating.

Like everyone else, we did have to wait a while before being served. The food was tasty .we had some lemon poppy cake and a cucumber and cheese sandwich, and some black tea. It was a good atmosphere. Very busy, and this was before the lunchtime rush.

The hike itself was great. You will get a workout in! But there are tons of places to stop, take photos, etc. When you reach the top you'll be glad you kept going. The tea house is just perfect. Small, quaint and covered in adorable chipmunks that will literally steal your treats! Get the tea biscuits and jam. Delicious. Also,... More
