After setting up camp near Groveland, Ca., my wife and I drove back into town to 'scope out' the local amenities. We were in need of a late lunch and so we stopped at Dori's Tea Cottage. We never expected such a quaint little spot...More

It was our first day in Groveland and we were looking for a lunch. After reading the menu, it was my husband's suggestion to stop here (a surprise to me - no burgers on the menu). After choosing to sit outside in the garden, we...More

Dori and husband Greg offer an array of wonderful teas in a charming small space. The Victorian tea sandwiches are delicious and fun. Dori also makes delicious scones and other pastries. Not a place for macho men -- but wonderful for a ladies group or...More

Go for tea, it is so different from everything else. Dori's has a passion for tea and the foods they serve with it. The experience is best drawn out through the afternoon and hours of comfortable conversation.

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.
