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

A very warm and welcoming place - delicious freshly made food and a lovely selection of gifts to choose from. Great coffee and excellent tea (fancy that from a tea cottage!)

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

The manager was not only friendly, but also full of advice about Groveland. She knows everybody and knows all the businesses. A great place for a bite to eat and some local knowledge.

As Groveland locals we have tried everyplace in town. Dori's is our favorite lunch spot. We always settle in at their delightful little garden, have a delicious sandwich, a glass of wine or two and watch the world go by. We like to play tour guides for all the folks on the way to Yosemite, chatting with the travelers from... More

While visiting the town of Groveland I was pleasantly surprised at my afternoon lunch at Dori's Tea Cottage. The tea sandwiches were delightful and her scones delicious. The environment was exactly what I needed: cozy and relaxing. It was such a joy to be able to order small tastes of different sandwiches (it's nice to be able to try different... More

This is a wonderful place to go and relax with friends and family. The Owner's have done their utmost to create an atmosphere, like an English Cottage, which will take you back to a time when things were not so rushed and people enjoyed sharing tea and conversation. They offer a variety of tasty sandwiches, soups and other treats. Don't... More
