“My favourite spot in Long Island City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

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 spot for Coffee and WiFi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

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 the menu changes with specials occasionally.

Never in a rush to kick you out if you've finished your coffee. Heck, stay and have a sandwich too...

“A very hip teahouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

As one of the oldest spots in today's LIC, they always keep themselves fresh with new kind of foods and drinks. Me and my sons, we feel so lucky that our school bus stop is right in front of Communitea and we can treat ourselves with right out of oven pastries in the morning.
