We hiked up from the Chateau in the morning - had a great early lunch at the Teahouse - fresh sandwiches and awesome tea. Then we continued our hike to the plain of six glaciers (probably another 1.5 km) to get a spectacular view of the glaciers.

The trail was extremely scenic and the service and food at the teahouse was excellent. I would recommend going early before the trail gets crowded.

This popular little tea house is great for us all day hikers to sit, rest, and re-energize with some food. Considering many tea houses have no electricity they do manage to cook up some tasty food with friendly service given the remote location. Since it is on a popular route you can expect alot of people during high season. There really isn't much of a view from this tea house but food is reasonable and I recommend the soup/sandwich combos. They will take credit cards but the other tea house(Lake Agnes) does not in case you are doing to big hiking loop in Lake Louise. The blueberry pie was DELICIOUS.

we hiked up to the tea house during a busy time of the day, the tea house was crowded so we didn't have high hopes of getting a table to rest our feet. however i still decided to wait in line since it looked like it won't take too long. soon after i started lining up, being the next person to be seated, an elderly couple and a young couple came up the stairs to the seating area. a server came out of the kitchen just as a table was emptying, without even asking any of us who was here first, she went straight to the young couple and told them to sit where ever is free, completely ignoring me and the elderly couple. at this point i decided to give up having something to eat and drink. i went downstairs to leave, as i was standing on the first floor of the tea house thinking about what to do next, my phone rang in my backpack. before i could comprehended the call, this mid-age woman from the kitchen just barked 'no phone at the tea house!' from where she was standing. very rude. well im sorry i can not control whoever it was that called me and i well understand the no phone policy, but barking out orders is completely unneeded and just down right rude. would be happy to go back to lake agnes tea house again and again, but this place? no thanks

I hiked from Lake Louise to the Lake Agnes Tea House and then took the Highline trail over to the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House; so I had the pleasure of visiting both tea houses near Lake Louise.

In a nutshell, The Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House is more affordable but has lesser views from the tea house itself. Most of the view from 6 Glaciers is partially obstructed by evergreens, while the Lake Agnes view is an unobstructed view of the picturesque lake. However, I think it's definitely worth a visit to check out the views along the trail to the Plain of Six Glaciers viewpoint area. If you can handle just over 14km of hiking, I'd say do the loop and hit both tea houses. Either way, the trails are worth exploring!

We enjoyed a hot bowl of vegetable soup and a sandwich at the Six Plains Glacier Tea House. We did not find the pricing expensive. It is a scenic hike all the way and the tea house is a welcome place for a rest, toilet stop and replenishment. The staff were efficient and friendly.
We did the walk in mid-June so there were still sections of snow to walk through and we were surprised at the amount of people walking with just their normal joggers on. We enjoyed seeing the mountain goats along the way.

We would recommend walking poles for the over 50’s and hiking shoes if there is still snow about. A water bottle would also be recommended. It is a must-do experience for those that enjoy a decent hike.
