This place is an absolute must for tea drinkers. The quality, flavors, and wide variety of teas is amazing. The atmosphere and service were outstanding. You could get lost in the menu of teas and treats. I'll go back again and again and again!!

My mother-in-law, sister-in-law and myself enjoyed a lovely lunch at Columbia Kate's Teahouse last Saturday afternoon. My sister-in-law and I had the sandwich trio and while I had a side of fruit she had the salad. My mother-in law had the chicken sandwich. We shared a dessert trio and enjoyed it greatly. It was a lovely setting on a warm... More

This is a cute, homey, and fun little restaurant/tea house. I went with some of the girls in my family while visiting Sonora. I loved the kitschy feel, the tea of the day was amazing, and the salad and dessert that I had were divine!

We ate the cinnamon buns, from the bakery, for breakfast one morning & everyone in the family agreed that these were the best, most fresh cinnamon buns that we've ever eaten! Only problem now is, how can we eat one from somewhere else again?! Delicious!!!

This review is based on only 1 menu item that was recommended to me. I had the bread pudding with rum sauce. As my Hawaiian friends would say... "it was so good, it broke da mouth." Absolutely delicious bread pudding served hot, with rum sauce and cream. My next visit to Columbia this will be on my itinerary for lunch.

And I'm 52 years old; my mother, who just turned 80 (this was her birthday celebration we were there for) said the same exact thing. Hands down the best little bitty restaurant I've ever tried. My husband loved this place. Absolutely. Looked kitty cornered from Columbia Kate's Bakery (very good, but no match for the teahouse) and Columbia Kate's Boutique... More

Another visit to Columbia State Park and I couldn't wait to take my friend to Kate's Teahouse. We weren't very hungry even though it was lunch time but it was very hot so we each had a wonderful lavender lemonade along with a split chicken sandwich. It wasn't crowded so we took advantage of the cool inside and just sit... More

I had the most incredible lunch at this place. I purchased it To Go, and the staff was wonderful. They made me a wonderful Orange flavored tea over ice. The fruit that came with my sandwich was so fresh.

I've been here for morning teas and afternoon noshes. A wonderful place to feel genteel. Even in the winter the place is cozy. Wonderful fresh food served with love.

My husband and I went to Columbia the day before Easter hoping to have a hearty meal at the City Hotel. Unfortunately, it was closed for renovations so we wandered around and found Kate's. A dainty tea house isn't my husbands style, but we decided to try it out anyway. We were both blown away! The tea list is a... More
