A great addition to LIC, nice ambience to have coffee or tea, and food and simply relax. I have been there few times for lunch and was very happy with their service. The only thing I did not like was when people just hang out there for hours on their computer and it's hard to find a place to sit... More

Very fresh food, great vegetarian soup and some gluten free possibilities; love the chicken salad. Comfort food at it's best in a homey easy atmosphere. No mass produced anything here. A great place to sit with friends or with your device to do some alone time. Wifi available. New location, it used to be on Vernon Blvd. 11-18 46th Rd... More

The place is large which is great if you have a large gathering of friend or needs pace to study/read. Coffee and tea selection is nice, but good is not as fresh, tasty it good as 51st Cafe. Salads are dismal and sandwiches are okay. The grilled cheese is a winner though.

we went in twice - once for tea and then for breakfast. Staff is helpful and service is good. There are a ton of tea options so it can take awhile to choose.

Communitea is a nice change of pace from the regular deli’s that line Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. They offer healthy and unique sandwich and salad alternatives to those who prefer a not-so-traditional breakfast or lunch. But while the place has been in existence for some time now, they do not accept credit of any kind and is strictly... More

I have gone here since the day 1 but then it dropped off my radar because my daily routines changed. Went back with family last Sunday. Everything was much better than I remembered and the menu has expanded enormously. So as the tirle says - glad I went back.

Found reviews of this place online and decided to give it a try since it's so close to where I'm currently staying. Loved it! It's a good size and the menu is extensive yet affordable! The music gave off a nice and relaxed vibe on the rainy Saturday afternoon I went. Will go back for sure

This was a super find about five minutes from our hotel. One morning I picked up pastries and coffee; another we ate at Communitea where we had oatmeal, fruit, and a bagel. Very good coffee, a relaxed place, and super employees.
