We called to make a reservation but they weren't answering phones. (Why not use a wait list app?). So we had a 45 min wait which the owner discounted by saying " a lot of tables are finishing up so it shouldn't be too long"....More

We stopped in Kates on the way back to San Francisco from Yosemite. It's located in an old west mining town and offers old fashion food and good service. Several of us had the chicken pot pie and really enjoyed it.

Set in an 1880's period barn in historic Columbia, CA, our focus is in providing both an education in the Art of Afternoon Tea and enhancing a visitor's experience of Columbia while offering a pleasant atmosphere and a modicum of culture to a gold mining town. Beautiful Columbia, with Main Street looking north from the Wells Fargo Building. Columbia Kate's is just up the street and right on State Street, one block over to Columbia Street.
