An easy hike on a well-maintained trail gets you there in about an hour. The teahouse is it's own reward. Pleasant staff, tea and scones accompanied by a pristine setting. Lots of whisky Jacks and ground squirrels begging to share your eats.

Lake Agnes Teahouse will be a lifesaver for many! There's a hike up to it that can be difficult on a warm day! The views are worth it and I loved that there was still snow on the ground in late June when you're up this high! The food was ok! Not the best I've eaten but still impressive for... More

First of all, let me be clear, I am not a tea drinker. With that said, that was the best cup of tea ever. Maybe it was the long walk up the mountain to get there, or maybe it was the amazing views and cozy atmosphere? At any rate, the tea was great and is a must if you make... More

Beautiful vistas from the trail as soon as you are half way through. As the tea house was overfilled we chose a nice spot on the lake shore to have our lunch snacks.

It's tough to imagine a better view, an easy hike up to the tea house. It gets very crowded during peak times.

Cute little tea house at the top of a mountain! It was a nice surprise for myself as I did not research anything on Lake Louise area or hiking before finding this place while out on the trails. (which I don't really recommend haha) I had some hot chocolate -they used the water from the lake- and a delicious apple... More

We have been up to the Lake Agnes Tea House a few times over the last few years. It is a wonderful day hike destination. Worth the steep hike. The views are beautiful and the tea and sandwiches are very good. We have found it very busy the last couple of years so get there early.

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.

"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!)".
