Unfortunately, I only got to enjoy one meal here however it was memorable. The laid-back spirit of the community is captured in the cafe's decor, menu, and overall ambiance. I love salads and bowls of one sort or another, and the menu's variety of options satisfied both my vegetarian and my husband's non-veggie preferences. We enjoyed a lunch that was... More

This place is a must if you are visiting the Canmore area. They have vegetarian and gluten free options to suit almost any dietary need. My favourite is the Pad Thai with chicken. They always have feature dishes, homemade soups, teas and iced teas to sample as well. It does get very busy during peak meal times, so keep that... More

I have been here many times and usually visit for breakfast or lunch whenever I am in Canmore. The food selection and coffee is delicious.

I've had lunch a few times here and have always enjoyed the healthy selection and quality of food!!!! The only downfall is the time it takes at lunch sometimes to recieve your order. I've waited almost half an hour one time... But worth the wait if you have the time to kill. Very good food menu!!

Went to Communitea yesterday, had the chicken quesadilla and tea. Everything came out quickly, the staff were friendly as can be, and the food was delicious. As regular summer visitors, we will certainly be returning often. Great job Communitea staff

I was incredibly impressed with Communitea! The concept is so cool and the cafe really embodies a sense of community. Besides the incredible breakfast and smooth coffee, the walls are littered with fantastic local artwork, there are live performances, and posters for local retreats and workshops (I love my yoga!). All around great vibe and fantastic, fresh food. Love.

This is a great place to hang out. The food is delicious and healthy; the atmosphere is very welcoming; kids are totally welcome. Plus they also bring some great music to town -- although, sadly, the acoustics are not great.
