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.

“The most delightful place to eat in Central/Northern California!!!”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Dori's is most definately the best tea cottage in our area. The owners (Dori & Greg) are warm , welcoming and very service oriented. The food is tremendous. The selection is so good, you may have difficulty choosing what to eat but don't worry, it's all very good. We have gone to Dori's many times and each time is as good as the last!

“An Excellent English Tea Experience”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

What a great find! We had the best tea sandwiches and couldn't decide which was our favorite. They are all so good. The tea selection was amazing. Our personal favorite was the apricot green tea.

Dori and Greg the owners were so warm and inviting. It was like having lunch at a friend's home.

And the retail selection was great. We picked up some lovely soaps, loose tea and picnic ware.

This is a Must See in Groveland!

“Very nice.”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

Stopped for a refreshment after spending the day at Yosemite Nation Park. Hubby went for a lay down, and I thought I would grab a cup of tea.
It's a lovely place to wander into.
Lovely things to look at, and I am sure everyone will see a tea cup that will remind you of your childhood.
Had a spicy pumpkin tea - I thought I would be adventurous and try something different.
It was very nice indeed.
It came with a lovely Raspberry and white chocolate scone.
Very nice and enjoyable indeed.
Give it a go.

“A heart-warming and yummy experience”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

We were staying at Camp Berkeley-Tuolomne and a group of 12 of us went into Groveland to enjoy High Tea at Dori's Tea Cottage. Absolutely the loveliest, sweetest experience. All of the food was special and perfect and lovingly prepared. Dori and Greg treat everyone as a most welcomed and precious guest. My husband and I will go there every time we're in the neighborhood.
