cool place for tea! A hidden gem

we went in twice - once for tea and then for breakfast. Staff is helpful and service is good. There are a ton of tea options so it can take awhile to choose.

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 do not accept credit of any kind and is strictly... 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.
