Tea house was a nice respite after hike. Got biscuits and jam and water. It's absolutely overpriced but after the hike I didn't care too much. Ready for a reward! Have fun, you won't regret it

The hike up to the tea house is a bit steep so I brought my walking poles --they proved to be very handy going up and down. Along the way you can spy a few glimpses of Lake Louise as you rise up and up....More

This was a great hike. It takes between 1-2 hours to hike up to the Teahouse. You stop at Mirror Lake on the way. The trail is well maintained but there is a lot of traffic. Best to go early morning for the least amount...More

Great reward after 1 hour climb. Went for mountain zen tea, Agnes black tea, chocolate cake and scones. The scones were good enough but the other 3 were all top notch! Very generous amounts of tea as well. Got there about 10.15 and wasn't too...More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after hiking the Lake Agnes Teahouse trail and before continuing on to Big Beehive. Yes, there was a wait, but we didn't wait longer than 15-20 minutes, which is more than reasonable to me. The server was...More

Sorry I am not sure but if you contact them directly they do get back to you. I had asked about if they except reservations ( they do not ) and she called me back with a day.

"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!)".
