The teahouse at the top of the walk is very cute and a welcome stop after an hour hiking. The line to wait to be served is long and it shows how popular this place truly is. We didn't bother to grab seats and opted instead for takeaway. Some items are only available as dine in. Despite this, we waited... More

After a short hike (all up hill) we got to our destination. It's a big destination for a lot if people so it's always packed. The trail is clean and safe, anyone can do it, but it's a mountain so proper shoes and water is a must!

There is a lot of people on the trail which makes you feel safe. it's best to go early in the morning when it's not so hot. It takes about an hour to get up the mountain to the tea house, but it is worth it !! It is all up hill so have good shoes and a bottle of... More

We hiked up to Little Beehive and stopped here on the way back. We couldn't even get a cup of tea because of the insane amount of people.

Hiked up to Agnes Tea house on our way to Little Beehive with my wife, 10 year old and 7 year old. Awesome tea house but very crowded. No tables or seats available. They also don't have any trash cans so whatever you hike up with you need to hike out with. Wasn't thrilled with menu selections but can't expect... More

The tea house is 3.4 km mostly up hill from Lake Louise. The hike there is mostly through beautiful forest with some really nice viewpoints. The tea house had a large wrap around porch for seating and a few tables in doors. The scones and ham were fabulous as was the tea. We had their new cold brew raspberry kiwi.... More

Our family of four (including two teenagers) hiked from Lake Louise to Lake Agnes and the teahouse. We went on a Wednesday morning in August and it was a little crowded. Go early if you can. Remember to bring cash for the teahouse. The tea, sandwiches, and dessert were quite good. Would definitely recommend this hike to others. Trail is... More

The hike up the mountain is generally accessible but difficult in places, however there are lots of places to stop along the way which catch your eye and offer a pit stop. The teahouse has so much character and offers a surprising range of food and drink. Even my wife, who is a Coeliac, was elated to see some gluten... More

We liked the hike, it was 3.5 Kms uphill. What we liked the most is that this is well trodden and you constantly see people, which makes you feel safe, considering you are in bear country. It is challenging enough. The lake is so so, especially after Moraine and Louise. The tea house has fantastic teas (I had the blue... More

We were among the vast throng of people who walked up to this teahouse, and found it a lovely spot for a light lunch before heading back down to the resort. We enjoyed a lovely lunch of a cheese, cucumber and mayo sandwich, and a serve of scones, with a cold drink to accompany it. The scones were some of... More

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!)".
