We were traveling back from Tioga pass to Mountainview and we're looking for some tea break around Groveland. A quick search took us to Dori's cafe. We just entered the cafe with least expectations and just to grab a bite and get some tea after the long journey. We were in for a pleasant surprise! Since the cafe was pretty... More

Wow this was a great little find. We were dying for a coffee and also found a great baked goods. I would go back if it wasn't so far from home. Service was what you would expect in a small town coffee shop super friendly and took their time making excellent lattes. A few people were eating the gelato that... More

I'm English and I've had countless trips to all parts of the US. It's a country I love but one thing they cannot do for love nor money is make a decent cup of tea! Basically what they do is give you a tea bag, poor vaguely hotish water into a cup and that's it. Dori's is the one and... More

We visited Dori’s Tea Cottage in mid-August on our way to San Francisco from Yosemite. We researched this place ahead of time and decided it would be a good stop for lunch. We are tea lovers and love tea houses, so this was a nice treat. Dori’s Tea Cottage is easy to find as it is right on the main... More

Best place to celebrate High Tea in all of Tuolumne County. Quality of food is excellent. The service is friendly and the restaurant has great ambiance.

We decided to eat here because of their posted menu. The place across the street was cheaper, but we liked Dori's selections better. There is a Tea Room, a store with a lot of tea items and other things, take out, and a few tables in the front. We ordered, and waited. We happened to talk to the mother of... More

Description
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.
