Communitea is a nice change of pace from the regular deli’s that line Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. They offer healthy and unique sandwich and salad alternatives to those who prefer a not-so-traditional breakfast or lunch. But while the place has been in existence for some time now, they... read more

I have gone here since the day 1 but then it dropped off my radar because my daily routines changed. Went back with family last Sunday. Everything was much better than I remembered and the menu has expanded enormously. So as the tirle says - glad I went back.

Found reviews of this place online and decided to give it a try since it's so close to where I'm currently staying. Loved it! It's a good size and the menu is extensive yet affordable! The music gave off a nice and relaxed vibe on the rainy Saturday afternoon I went. Will go back for sure

This was a super find about five minutes from our hotel. One morning I picked up pastries and coffee; another we ate at Communitea where we had oatmeal, fruit, and a bagel. Very good coffee, a relaxed place, and super employees.

Great place for breakfast or if you're just having a coffee and cake moment. On entering it is very warm and welcoming, staff are friendly and music is bluesy/soulful/chilled out. Many people taking advantage of the free Wifi. Lots of teas available which I didn't find anywhere else in NYC! Very tasty Paninis & sandwiches with a good selection of... More

Looks old and drab from the outside, but the food and the service makes up for it. It's just a good place to grab a bite in the neighbourhood.

Great standard in LIC for a quick (or not so quick) coffee and some free wifi... Staff is always friendly and welcoming, and the crowd is decidedly local. Plenty of people working on screenplays, resume's, or just surfing the web. Also a great spot to sit and catch up with a friend. Sandwiches and panini's are great as well, and... More
