Highly recommend this spot for a healthy lunch, particularly for those on gluten-free and dairy-free diets. We visited several times during our stay. Enjoyed the Nori bowl (like deconstructed sushi), Whole (Keto) bowl, vegan burrito on gluten free wrap, chicken quesadilla and hummus dipper. Great...selection of teas as well.More

Was staying with a local family member who recommended this place - easy to see why! I had a smoothie bowl and he had the breakfast panini, both were excellent. Even our lattes were top notch with milk perfectly steamed and subtle quality flavour. Communitea...is a must tryMore

Was visiting Canmore for the week and decided to check this place out. The first visit was great, food was delicious (we had the pad Thai and Buddha bowl) and my tumeric elixir was phenomenal. The staff were not super friendly, but no complaints. The...only reason I make that point was because we decided to visit communitea a second time before leaving (seriously, the food was that good), and the server we encountered was friendly, kind, interactive, and I returned to my table with a smile. Wish I had caught his name. He made us feel seen and welcomed (it was a pleasant surprise). We had the mountain veggie wrap and it was DIVINE! I’ve already told friends that they NEED to visit. And it will certainly be a go-to stop for me when visiting the Canmore/Banff area.More

We went here twice while in Canmore. The healthy and delicious lunch options are really unmatched. It is hard to come by such quality food with great vegetarian and vegan options. Also tried the loose leaf tea which was delicious. The place also just has...a great happy positive vibe about it. Definitely a must visit!More

Food was delicious and a great portion size. Tiny bit pricey but at least it was great healthy food that left you full at the end of the meal. We got the taco bowl with chicken and the nori bowl with shrimp.
