This place was recommended to us by our server at the Hogshead. I was originally going to go to another place but was told to try this place first. We would not be disappointed. Communitea is about 2 blocks off of Main Street.
As we entered the place it was lined up with people waiting to order food. No menu up where more can read it. There is no menu up on a wall where you could browse before ordering. The menus are printed on 8 x 11 laminated paper, so everybody has to come up to grab one and read it before you get to the counter. The food menu is full of healthy choices. We bypassed the line as we were only ordering drinks today. The staff were friendly to deal with.
The walls on the inside of the cafe, were basically all white. On those white walls, they have a ton of cool artwork. They also have an area for kids to play, which seemed to be a hit with the kids I seen.
We had the London Fog and the Maple Latte. The maple latte was actually really good, as it had only a hint of maple flavouring and was not over powering. Service was pretty quick. They brought our drinks out to us on the patio.
As the name of the place mentions, CommuniTEA, they sell a lot of tea, on the wall behind the baristas they have canisters of assorted teas as well as accessories to be sold to tea lovers. My daughter would love this place as she is a huge tea lover.
We sat out on the patio which stretches around the front of the shop. I cannot believe how many people have dogs in Canmore, they were everywhere! Water bowls were outside most of the businesses as well.
