After a long trek to get to the Plain of Six Glaciers, it's so nice to have a slice of pie and a cup of tea to rest before the hike back. The prices are expensive, but considering that everything has to either be carried in by staff or helicopter dropped to the site, the prices are very understandable. Goods are fresh-baked on site and well worth it!

Well done to the girls (and guys if there are any) who man this tea room spending five days living up by the glacier before their shift change. Not many places offer such a great personal service and have a welcome like this at the end of a long walk. Equally not many of us have to walk 6.1km up a mountain just to get to work like the staff do! Spectacular views when the snow is still on the cliff faces whilst having a lovely cup if tea. You could hear the cracking of ice and the fall of avalanches whilst sitting there.Very welcomed before the downhill journey back to Lake Louise

So, you've just schlepped thru snow, up switch backs, across streams, you are wet, you are cold, you are dazzled by the scenery and the friendly spirit of everyone you meet on the trail - You reach the Teahouse. The lovely, personable wait staff greets you. The dog wags it tail. You have tea. It's the same tea ya get everywhere else in the world. You have cake, it's dry, it's cold, but as you look out across the balcony at the glaciers, it tastes better.

Don't expect culinary delight - This place is about the place. Carry that spirit with you and it's all good.

We've been coming to this tea house for years and the experience has always been great. This time, even better. We came with friends and our two little dogs and the owner and staff were very accommodating, even taking time to speak with us about the little guys and providing them with water. The menu is small, as is to be expected when you have to backpack all your materials in, but the quinoa salad and tuna wraps were top notch, as was the vegetarian soup of the day, in this case a curried chick pea soup. At about $15 per person with tea, a perfectly reasonable price as well. We'll continue coming, especially since it's not anywhere near as busy as the Agnes tea house. A great place to unwind.

After hiking several miles, my hands were freezing and I was starving. I got hot chocolate, peanut butter/jelly sandwich, and a chocolate cake. Very delicious! It got me ready for the hike back. Their dog is absolutely adorable, too. Prices are a little higher but you have to think about the fact that tgey haul everything up there (fuel included), and haul their trash back down. The slight increase in price helps pay for this extra work.
