just what you expect from a tea shop at the top of the mountain... authentic, rustic and in keeping with nature offering a good selection of home made foods.

We started the hike too late in the day (probably about 2pm) and the tea house was too busy to eat at :( It was disappointing, but just know that this place is popular and busy and sometimes there is not even a shared table available.

Worth the hike, and also worth the wait for a seat because it can be quite busy! Was one of my favourite spots.

It's not often that you get the opportunity to have a nice cup of tea after a long walk up a steep forested hill in the wilds of Canada. Lake Agnes is one such place. The walk starts at Lake Louise and meanders up through the wooded hillside. There are great views over the lake below. Eventually you arrive at... More

This hike is equally break taking for the views and the physical exertion. As you wind up the mountain you are treated to stunning vistas that include waterfalls and mountain peaks. Lake Agnes is so post card ready, it's truly pristine. The tea house offers fresh made sandwiches, delicious cookies and wonderful offerings of tea. While you're relaxing and taking... More

So I climed the 3.8 km one way up the steep hill to find out that the Tea House in close, however it was worth it. The views are amazing. It's breathtaking and I would recommend this to anyone. Just make sure you are dressed warm and ready to hike and u will enjoy it.

We hiked up here with a mix of young children and teenagers, and adults, and had a great refreshment stop.

As soon as we heard about a trail with cake and hot chocolate at the top of it, we were up for it. The trail took us just under an hour, and it's quite steep in places and a bit of hard work, but absolutely worth it. The view of the lake and the view back down towards Lake Louise... More

Great pastries and an extensive variety of teas, herbal and traditional; however, after drinking all that tea, guess what lots of people need to do? Right! And for some inexplicable reason, there are only two toilets! No matter that they're of the outhouse variety, they need a minimum of six. Remember, it's about an hour walk back to the restroom...

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!)".
