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

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

What a wonderful stop this is on the way to Yosemite. Located right on the main highway, it is a convenient place to grab a snack and stretch. We opted to try their pastries as well as a breakfast wrap. Their pastries are really good; fresh and sweet. The breakfast wrap hit the spot; prepared fresh, it had lots 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.
