Hot soup and chocolate cake

We arrived on a Snowy September day and what could be better than a nice hearty soup and a sinful piece of chocolate cake?

Stunning location but our visit was a little spoilt by a group of VERY loud American visitors. Considering the location and limited facilities the freshly prepared food was very good.

The hike was topped off with a decent meal in the middle of the wilderness. Both the hike and the meal were worth it with the million dollar view at the Plain of the Six Glaciers,

After a long walk, it was so nice to find this log cabin in the woods serving teas, desserts, light snacks and sandwiches. The service was friendly, the views were spectacular and the atmosphere quaint. If you can hike there, we recommend visiting this place.

The hike was one of the best we took on our Canadian trip and it was nice knowing this tea house was at the top! The history of the tea house was interesting and the young man working there was fun to talk with. It is an interesting existence up there! They have about 20 tea choices and our tea... More

After a very rewarding hike that covers everything you come to the Canadian Rockies for, sit down and enjoy a piece of chocolate cake that rivals Grandma"s! Start early to avoid the crowds and enjoy a very quaint and down to earth stop with more of those awesome views! This is what you you come here for!!!!!!!!!

This place is amazing! We stopped off here after hiking from the lake, and before we continued onto the glacier. It's incredible how the carry the majority of food supplies in themselves! The service was amazing and considering the efforts they go to, the food was very reasonably priced. I would hike all that way every day just to eat... More

A half a day excursion with a lot of uphill hiking - but rewarding views and tea! They also serve lunch. It helped getting started early in the morning as we had the tea house and the trail pretty much to ourselves. HIghly recommend

Very quaint and homey. Ignore the other reviews about high prices. Just expect them given the location. Everything we ordered was great and the chocolate cake hit the spot after the walk all the way up to the top of the plains.

The tuna sandwich and tea cakes were a delicious treat after a beautiful hike. Great views of Lake Louise on the way up.
