It takes more effort to get here than to the one at the Plain of Six Glaciers, but the view of the lake is definitely worth it. The spiuced lentil soup and teas we had were the perfect lunch after the hard climb.

We got here at the end of a long day's hiking up to the glacier and then to Lake Agness...it was like returning to civilization with a lot of people! But still nice. All the crowd had walked up from the nearer car park... we felt superior having walked miles!

We so enjoyed our walk up to the Lake Agnes Teahouse. While the walk is rather steep (we are from the east coast and are unaccustomed to this altitude), the end result was so worthwhile. Gorgeous! And you can sit down at the teahouse and enjoy sandwiches, scones and tea. Perfect! We tried the Blue Lady tea and were not... More

We hiked up to Lake Agnes on a cool day that turned fairly blustery at the lake. The Tea House was great. Hot chocolate and a cookie. What could be better. The kids working up there were hustling to deal with all the people. It's a small space with limited seating so etiquette required us to give up our table... More

Stopped at the tea house on the way to the Big Beehive. I left from the Fairmont and on the way you pass Mirror Lake. I rate the hike a moderate standard and you get nice views of Lake Louise as you climb higher. The crisp mountain air I was abit of a shock to the system but I just... More

First of all, be prepared if you are in my age bracket to walk at an uphill and rocky trail for almost the entire trip. I am in my early 60's and because of the higher altitude could not catch my breath. Took us about 3 hours to complete this hike. As another said to me, "Oh, the things we... More

The hike up to Lake Agnes seems never ending although it takes just over an hour. Once you get here rest a while and get some food and drink from the Teahouse. I seem to remember we had a round of Tuna and a round of Hummus sandwiches both of which were delicious and I don't like Tuna. Seeing Apple... More

It is about a 3 km hike up to the St. Agnes Teahouse but how nice to arrive there and be treated with delicious treats and tea.

It was quite a hike up there with a fair amount of incline. Starting at Lake Louise which is pure turqoise blue water. Then Mirror Lake. Then Lake Agnes where where the Tea House is. Healthy sandwiches, soup, and welcomed hot chocolate. It was crowed on a Sunday. I suggest crossing the bridge and taking the alternate route down to... More

"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!)".
