They had recently expanded and now have (formal?) tea room with traditional food. The front has a walk up counter which does subs, salads, etc.Staff is hard working and friendly. The shop has many hard to find tea accessories, and a great selections of Teas.

Once again I visited Dori's in Groveland and had an excellent breakfast as I was passing thru from San Jose Family Camp. Food is well prepared, beautifully presented and extremely good and filling. The ambiance creates a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere ... we are surrounded by cheery colors and displays. My friends and I particularly liked the breakfast wraps. Staff... More

I just got home after spending a few days in Groveland with a few friends. One of the highlights of our stay was visiting Greg and Dori's establishment daily. The patio is so quaint and lovely, as is the inside. The food/drink was terrific. The best part was the hospitality of the owners. Their warmth and kindness made the experience... More

Was in Groveland for a Yosemite wedding and Dori's catered our picnic for 20. Not only was the food delicious; but Dori and her staff saw to it that everything was ready for pick up on time and provided everything we needed (even things we had not thought to ask for). It made a wonderful day even more enjoyable. In... More
