My wife and I visited Dori’s during our honeymoon. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Greg and Dori were very hospitable and their tea, scones and sandwiches were oustanding. If you are a guy, don’t forget to ask Greg about his Lapsang Souchong tea, it’s incredible.

Had an absolutely wonderful visit. The food, tea, ambience, and people all top of the mark. Love the place & the vision of the owners. Can’t recommend it enough.

The tea is great and the food is AMAZING. Dori’s is my MUST stop at place when we are in Groveland. Dori puts out a spread of the most delicious food! We were just there last week, sat outside, watched the world go by and met great people. What a fun time!

We plan our trips to Yosemite from the SF bay area with a stop at Dori’s fine offerings. Comfortable room, peaceful garden, welcoming hosts, correctly brewed refreshing teas (every sort), plus excellent samplers of tea sandwiches and sweets. When you need a small break along the roadway they pick you up; delightful!

This is a great and unexpected find in Groveland. My wife and I have had tea at many wonderful places including the Ritz Carlton and Neiman Marcus in San Francisco and the Palm Court at the Waldorf Hotel in London and the food at Dori’s is every bit as good, if not better as it is so fresh. Don’t miss this place!

Dori and Greg have created an English Oasis on the road to Yosemite. I have been at tea time in London, and this is it! They are so comfortably welcoming you feel like you are in your own English countryside manor. They offer a wide variety of teas including decaf and flavored types. The little sandwiches are scrumptious, and the scones are TERRIFIC! Even if you just go for the scones you will love it. I am a guy and I have no hesitation in inviting my male friends to come with me to Dori’s for tea (they usually give me the blue tea cup). Yes, and that is also a special part of their teas: the variety of tea cups and pots they serve in. This is a place we have returned to often, and have never been disappointed. We have loved it every time!

We stumbled upon this tea room on the way home from Yosemite. It was a breath of fresh air tucked in between the other, more expected, stores along the main drag of Groveland. The exterior is adorable, and the interior has a calm and peaceful air. The little sandwiches were terrific, and although I'm not a big tea drinker, I fouhd the tea delicious and drank the entire pot (the tea selection is enormous). Dori and Greg were just wonderful. It's a great place to stop between Yosemite and San Francisco.
