Really, across the street from the oldest continually operating saloon? A tea shop? But it's great. Coffee and tea are very good, and the pastries are terrific. If you have time, you can partake of a real tea shop, with doilies and tea cosies. Totally...More

After an unfortunate experience at Firefall Coffee across the street, we stopped in here. The service was friendly, the vibe was cool (It was a charming little house converted into a tea shop.) Most importantly, the iced tea was very good. It was VERY hot...More

We definitely will return to this delightful little tea house. Salads are great, pastries are home baked and the service is excellent.

Make sure to make a reservation for afternoon tea! They have a front store where you can buy sandwiches and ice cream but in the back is a proper tea. What a great experience- and yummy too!

The owners made the experience exceptional. Loved the quality of teas as well as sandwiches. The location has an ambiance of an English Tea House. The seating is comfortable and nice. It reminded me of my visit to Jane Eyre's house. I will definitely recommend...More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Yosemite. Food was OK, but not cheap and service was intermittent. We waited a long time for lunch and it was very hot inside the back room. Would try somewhere else next timeMore

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.
