As a frequent visitor to Columbia since 1999 and Columbia Kate's Teahouse, it is a perfect place to enjoy a good cup of tea, sandwiches, salads and daily deserts. Staff will make your visit extra special with attentive service, light menu and teas galore.

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.

We were told by several people around the area to try this place, and we were not disappointed. It is not a very large place, but set in an old building and operates much like a tea house would in the 1850's. Lace tablecloths with...More

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.
