I've only ever visited Communitea for lunch and/or beverages but I can speak to the quality of the food. There is a reasonable selection of options for such a small place and most of them feature lots of fresh ingredients combined simply with good flavours. It's not the kind of food you wax poetic about but it is the kind of food you try to reproduce at home. It just makes you feel good.

The atmosphere is pretty typical Canmore casual and the prices are not cheap but pretty average for the town. Expect to pay 10-16 dollars per lunch, plus beverages, tax and tip.

What can I say that hasn't been said before? Whimsical French pop playing in the background, young hippy chucks on the sofa talking liberal politics, and environmentally responsible nosh on the menu.

When you need a moment to chill and want to feel like a local this is the place to stop.

The food at Communitea is amazing. The staff is always very friendly. One place you can definitely eat out and not worry about falling off the health train. Great ingredients, gluten free options, beautiful tea blends. The only downfall is it is slow. You can't be in a rush but it is totally worth the wait!

Delicious Gluten and dairy-free salmon and egg wrap with avacado. Freshly made. They had all the right answers to my questions about how to cook my breakfast without contaminating my food with ingredients that I can't tolerate.

While Harvest, Rocky Mountain Bagel and Beamers have a very quirky and local vibe, Communitea feels sleek and chic and it kind of feels like the patrons are moreso from Calgary than from Canmore. While patrons in the other coffee shops often look like they just biked/ran/skiied (as we often do), the patrons in Communitea look like they just drove in from Calgary (as we often do!). That's not a bad thing, but it just means that we would be less likely to go to Communitea looking begraggled post-cycle. We would feel out of place if we went here in work-out gear. Communitea is the place we would go after spending the afternoon wandering around the high street, instead of after an afternoon of cycling. The only problem with Communitea is, like most Canmore coffee shops, it is crazy-busy and often hard to find a table.
