Very nice atmosphere and the food was delicious! Had my grandaughter with me and they have an activity area for her to play while waiting for food. Staff are friendly and very accommodating.

Communitea is where a lot of people gather for a great cup of coffee and tea. They serve intelligentsia beans for their coffee which is delish. We enjoyed some cappuccinos and cookies while there. They also serve a variety of sandwiches and panini. Check it out!

They have tons and tons of different tea to choose from, which I enjoy the most. Food is great, service is fantastic, therefore, people tend to "park" prolonged time which, sometimes creates the traffic jam lol. This is my "go-to" place every time I have out-of-town friends/guests to rave about Canmore.

What a great, quaint place to grab breakfast and coffee/tea. I met a large group of women here, the individuals working were very nice and welcoming. They have several "clean-eating" meal options that were delicious, and coffee was great!

I've been here before and the food was good but the service takes forever. Today took the cake though. Out of three orders all of them were screwed up and we barely got an apology and it took forever to get the correct food. When we did get our order some of it was cold. We also had the servers...

My husband and I visited kananaskis for the day and returned to this lovely café. The food is fresh served warm or cold. When we went it was very cold and we ordered some warm bowls of their delicious Thai inspired called "Dragon Bowel". I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to enjoy a meal that is both...

A trip to Canmore or Banff is mandatory whenever I make a trip back to my beloved Alberta, and this trip was no exception. Learning about this wonderful cafe determined that we would travel no further than Canmore. We three ladies all chose something different and each was delicious! Wanting to try a vegetarian option, I selected the Beetroot burger... More

When traveling it's nice to find a place with healthy, lighter options on occasion. The food here was delicious and, although I'm not usually a tea drinker, their teas are amazing! I do think they could be open a little later in the evening and am never crazy about having to decide where to put dirty dishes.

Great selection of teas. Lunch was healthy and delicious. The young man with the man-bun had a nasty attitude, though. Great concept for a restaurant. No other tea houses in town.
