After a long hike, this place is certainly an oasis in the mountain. The staff lives on the mountain for 5 days at a time and is incredibly friendly and outgoing. The prices may seem a bit high, but remember, they have to hike a good 6.6 km up to the top of the mountain with all the supplies with... More

We stopped here in the middle of a wonderful hike. It is indeed an oasis. The blueberry pie and chocolate cake were both very tasty. A little pricey, but we didn’t mind paying up. Very friendly staff, including Maddy and Luke (I am your Father!). A fun stop.

We rode in to this tea house by horseback. The scenery along the way was jaw dropping. The tea house was of course expensive, and the food was nothing spectacular, but you pay for the ambiance I guess. We couldn't wait to get back on our horses for the ride back. No offense to the restaurant. The journey kind of... More

It took a solid two hours each way for us to get there, but Peggy and I agreed it was well worth the climb. We shared a light lunch of a bowl of vegetable soup, half of a tuna salad sandwich, and a large slice of blueberry pie, all made on-site using propane stoves. And, of course, we had tea... More

Wonderful trail, stunning view of Lake Louise from afar, and the BEST chocolate cake! I'm not sure I could choose between this and Lake Agnes teahouse though...both wonderful!

This was a place we didn't plan on going to. Started out towards Lake Agnes teahouse and then decided to keep going to Plain of Six Glaciers. This is a moderate hike only in that it's a long hike on a warm day. The terrain is reasonable but bring water. There were some people who appeared to be a bit... More

Most travelers head to the Lake Agnes teahouse, but head towards Victoria glacier to get away from the crowds. It is a 5.5 km hike from the Chateau. Most rewarding is the bird's view of Lake Louise Chateau and the lake. Once at the tea house, sit outside on the veranda to enjoy the panorama. Note that there is no... More

Hiking the 6 plains glacier trail you'll find this great scenic stop at the top. A welcome sight. You'll find a nice menu of pastries, sandwiches, and a wide variety of teas. It's very homely and at once you feel like part of the family. Had the hot soup and the apple pie with maple black tea. Delish! Great service... More

It may not look like much, but to us its a favourite (and not easy to get to) place. The tea, hot chocolate, pies and pastries are surprisingly good considering there is no electricity and everything is cooked on a wood burning stove.

This was a welcome,very attractive little place high up in the meadows and forests.I can't honestly say the Apple Pie was any good (it was soggy and overly sweet) and our tea was cold but it didn't really matter,what a welcome place for a stop and to enjoy the stunning surroundings,hence the 4 stars.Nice peple to talk to and find...
