Ordered buddha bowl with smoked salmon added on. Received teensy portion for the extra $4.50. The bowl was drenched with dressing and chickpeas were dried out/seemed partially dehydrated but weren't crunchy either. Service was impatient, abrupt and not particularly welcoming or friendly. Won't go again.

This was our favourite spot to eat during our trip to Alberta. We weren’t staying in Canmore but still went 3 times in 6 days (stopped on the way to Banff, drove back from Banff, then again on our way to the Calgary airport from...Jasper). Food was fresh and healthy - the perfect lunch for busy days!More

Pad Thai was incredible! Kids didn’t overly love their food, but it was less the food quality and them being generally picky eaters. My partner and I loved our food! Atmosphere and drinks were great too! Will definitely come back next time we are in...Canmore!More

I really want to like this place and have given it several goes but been disapointed. The servers kind of make you feel really unwelcome and arent helpful. The teas are bland and the takeaway cup leaks boiling water all over you if you try...to carry it anywhere. Ended up throwing my whole drink away .More

I have been to Commiitea previously and found the food good. This time I ordered the special, Chicken Teriyaki. It took ages to come, and when it did show up, I had wished I had ordered something else. It was so sweet, I could barely...eat it. It tasted like there was a bowl of sugar in it. I expect a level of sweetness in Teriyaki dishes, but this was way to sweet. I also ordered a date square, expecting it to have some oatmeal in it, or some whole grain, as Communitea usually serve healthy food, but it didn't taste that way. It was doughy and not good. The tea was good. As I have good food in Communitea previously, I will return there and hope for the best.More

My favourite food in a place with delicious energy that makes me feel welcomed and refreshed every time I step in Communitea. I can’t wait to sit inside again, but in the meantime, I’ll keep ordering to go!

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was really good. They have an exciting menu, we will have to return to try it. The staff is friendly and makes you feel welcomed the minute you walk in. Great jo all around.

This cafe is located on a corner and when we arrived there was a line up right to the door. You can grab a seat by the window of there isn't a line, scan a QR code on the table and order + pay for...your meal almost instantly. For a very brief moment we contemplated another restaurant for lunch but I've always believed in the queue and believe me, Communitea is absolutely worth the wait in line! Take out seems a popular choice here but if you want to or have to wait to dine in, they give patrons a 45 minute time limit to keep turnover fair. Overall their system works really well and we both felt totally safe and looked after. Menu and chairs are plastic so it's easy to clean up and also looks clean - white seats, walls, windows all around you. Communitea is full of fresh, healthy options for all. I tried the Buddha Bowl with smoked salmon added, but it was hard to decide between the Green Curry! Service is friendly but that isn't why we would return. The food is superb!!!More

We were in Canmore for two days and made a point to come back to this restaurant multiple times. We’re not usually review people but felt it necessary because everything we ordered was beyond delicious. Very vegetarian friendly. Highly recommend the Pad Thai, grilled cheese...and Quesadilla (veggie version). You won’t be disappointed!More
