I'm rating the lunch you can order at the counter, not the food in the tea room, where they have a different menu. The sandwiches are very tasty and with special ingredients. The bread could be better though (or at least toasted). The variety of...More

Stopped at Groveland to have a cup of coffee. Cozy place with real Tea Room, home made gelato, excellent coffee. Sandwiches, biscotti, and other snacks looked good. Definitely, will stop there again on my next trip to Yosemite NP.

Cute place and dog friendly. We had 4 dogs and each got a fresh baked dog biscuit. Across from the Iron Door Saloon.

Groveland, CA is small. From what I have learned, most of the residents live in Pine Mtn. And here, in this small town across the street from the "Oldest Saloon in California" is a real tea room. Unfortunately, we didn't see it tucked in the...More

This place is more on the La-ti-da range. I like feeling comfortable when eating. The food is very tasty and mostly homemade. A big variety of teas. But the setting is not my personal preference. I like a good sandwich I can put my fingers...More

Thank you for submitting your review. Although our tea room is intentionally a little fancy, you can also order full sandwiches, quiche, etc. from our team room menu. Additionally, you're welcome to order from our café menu, which is strictly sandwiches, subs, torpedo sandwiches, even...More

Neat place for tea or other food too. Staff were very helpful and let me try a couple different teas. Clean, bright and modern. Small outdoor seating area too.

Small town service at it's best! My husband had a soup/sandwich combo, and I had a tea service (and a glass of wine!) Everything was delicious! I had the blood orange tea, and took the rest to go - wow! It's our favorite place in...More

We invite you to step back in time to enjoy the charming atmosphere of this historical site and to partake in the English tradition of taking tea. Dori's Tea Cottage opened in May 2008 to continue this fine tea tradition and to expand on Dori's life-long love of tea. In 2012, Dori's expanded into the adjacent space that is now Dori's Cafe, which was Groveland's former U.S. Post Office. The Cafe features espresso, gelato, smoothies, fresh brewed iced teas, sandwiches, wraps, quiche, soup, salad and a variety of bakery items. We hope you enjoy your visit - whether you enjoy a quick breakfast, join us for our English tea luncheon, or "Build a Picnic" for your trip to Yosemite.
