Description: 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.

Sadly, Dori's is now permanently closed. This was a marvelous asset to the town of Groveland and the visitors passing through. It will be missed. Many thanks to Dori and her husband for sharing their talents and friendship with us.

We stopped here for lunch, driving out of Yosemite. Coffee was great, as was our sandwich. This place is somewhat peculiar because of the entourage, but it is just great.

Their dog friendly sign caught our attention, and we wanted a light lunch so we wouldn't want to nap in Yosemite. Turkey wraps were cool, crisp and fresh and the dollop of potato salad (slightly mustardy-my favorite) and small slice of ripe watermelon hit the spot. Don't drive by and overpay for a slice of pizza at the park!

As regular afternoon tea goers from England, we were pleasantly surprised to find Dori's Tea Cottage in Groveland. We had a wonderful afternoon tea, which was very delicious and authentic. The service was amazing. It was nice to be asked how long we wanted our tea to be brewed and as typical Yorkshire ladies, we asked for the tea bag to be left in the tea pots. Great afternoon and I would highly recommend a visit.

Dori's is one of my favorite spots here in Groveland. You can get a quick bite made with super fresh ingredients or a leisurely "tea" with your friends (or little granddaughters!). They have a nice selection of items in the shop as well. All around a wonderful place to visit.
