"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!)".

Good Food

It was raining and freezing cold out when we went. But the tea and food were pretty good. They only accept cash. We didn't get to enjoy it much because of the weather. There were a lot of people. The place was packed! After one heck of a hike, it's nice to have this tea house waiting at the top.

The hike was very nice. There are lakes, small waterfall, and great views. The tea house had a surprizing selection of food for a tea house. You have to manage your expectaions because it is tough geting supplies up to these places. We have food allergies and still were able to eat a quinoa salad, lemonades, and tea. Large tea... More

Wonderful hike. It can be done anytime in the year! Strap on the boots or snowshoes and spend the day walking. Better yet, continue to the Plains of Six Glaciers and the Big Beehive!

We loved Lake Agnes Teahouse - it's all about the experience. The hike can be strenuous in spots (I'm not a hiker!), but it was well worth it. The views are breathtaking. We actually had a wonderful meal (cash only) - the coffee and soup warmed us up, and the biscuits and jam were fabulous. The setting is fabulous -... More

Lovely place with great views - you'll definitely be ready for a cup of their tea once you get there. Sharp elbows required to secure a table. Sandwiches are super yummy with delicious homemade bread, but they do put that spread on them, so let them know if you don't want it.

We ventured on this hike up to the tea house. Wrap up warm as it gets very windy outside even in July! Soup was luke warm and okish small portions for money. Service was friendly but very slow. Could have been better experience given the opportunity this establishment has.

The teahouse is a great building, with an early 1900's adventure vibe. There are benches and boulders around the lake to sit on as well as the balcony and interior of the teahouse. The teahouse is always mad busy, and your odds of getting a seat are about 25% or less. You could wait ages for any order to arrive,... More

Heavenly place surrounded by waterfalls and aqua blue lake agnes worth the trek up and even better viewed from the big beehive. Scones and cookies taste better than anything you could imagine esp after the steep hike to get to it!

We hiked up the 3.4km trail, looking to fully enjoy a teahouse. What we found was a hot (on a cold day), rustic snack shop in a cabin. Yes there were teas to select from. But there were no scones or such as one would expect at something named a "teahouse." So don't expect a tea in a nice cup.... More
