After a long hike you can really fill back up. Cheese sandwich, veggie soup, hearty bread, choc. cake slice.... But be careful not to stuff yourself! You'll have to roll down the hill! Lemonade was more like watered-down KoolAid...but all in all a neat experience....More

Not that it's not worth it, but maybe going for the sake of saying you hiked up there and had something to eat at the teahouse shouldn't be your main motivation. It's a serious hike! Personally, eating after getting to the top wasn't necessary! They...More

The food here is very very simple but homemade and healthy. Think good food to refuel after a hike. Great rustic homemade bread. There isn't a ton of seating but its first come first served. The tea house closes around 5 in the summer I...More

Very different. A long uphill hike (4.5 miles round trip with a 1200' elevation change) to reach this little piece of heaven overlooking the lake Louise area. Simple menu of tea and home made goodies. Can be crowded.

I've tried the Tea House in the past and all the food is made there so it is fresh. Limited menu and on this particular day in August the Tea House was so crowded we could not get in. Suggest you take your own picnic...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!)".
