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.

“Veggies delight”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

For a British vegetarian, the roadside food stops in the USA are mostly a nightmare. Dori's in Groveland is a wonderful exception. Thoughtful food - designed with individuals in mind, not burger guzzling automatons. If I could make raspberry and white chocolate scones like Dori's I would be a very happy cook.
Groveland took a terrible hit from the Yosemite fires this year then the Government shut down - the town is on its knees. Give it a boost, eat at Dori's then go happily replete and spend in the town.

“Fantastic breakfast!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We all had delicious breakfast bagels here and sat outside under the grapevines. Dori's has a lovely tea room and shop. The owner made us feel very welcome. Well worth a visit when passing through Groveland!

“Great food, excellent service, pretty surroundings!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were looking for a place to stop for lunch as we passed through Groveland, and chose Dori's Tea Cottage & Cafe on the main road through town. We opted for the cafe and had a delicious lunch (half-sandwich and salad) outside on the charming little patio/garden. Really good food, great salad with lots of extras, peach-mojita iced tea, and a piece of homemade peach/blueberry pie for dessert. Wonderful friendly service. Recommend highly!

“Tea sandwiches”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

For the past year my husband have been remodeling our vacation home and found these wonderful tea house in Groveland.Dori and Greg the owners have done an excellent job. Their darling cottage is so warm and pleasing and in warm days you can sit in their charming gardens and enjoy a glass of wine and their wonderful tea sandwiches. They also have great gifts and lots of different teas. Wonderful place to visit.
