OUR TEA CAN BE PURCHASED ON OUR WEBSITE. Free Shipping.

Columbia Kate's occupies a designated historic building in the historic Columbia State Park.

The nucleus of the building is a barn built in the 1890’s by long time resident, barber and County Supervisor, Frank Dondero. The rustic building is a perfect venue for enjoying the comforts of tea, food and nice things.

Traditional tea accompaniments such as fresh baked scones and tea sandwiches share a diverse menu including artisan soups, quiche (egg pie for men), salads, chicken pot pie, award winning Pear Pecan Pie, bread pudding and fabulous homemade bread. All items are made fresh daily in our own Bakery next door.

Columbia Kate's Bakery has more of the fresh baked items, beyond what we have in the Teahouse restaurant.
You may also wish to visit Kate's Boutique next door. It makes Columbia Kate's even more of a destination. Try the lacy, lovely clothing chosen especially for the boutique and check out all the unique and interesting vintage buttons.

“We want every visitor to enjoy the Teahouse experience and we try to provide a relaxing and comfortable venue to explore our food and teas”

My 14 year old and I love to visit tea houses and this one has become one of our favorites! We were made to feel very welcome. The tea and food was excellent and the atmosphere of the tea room was very inviting. We had a wonderful time and will absolutely go there again sometime. The owner came and spoke with us at one point to see how we were doing and we didn't realize she was the owner. She gave us a fun map of tea houses in the area and a little history about hers. The boutique shop and bakery across the street are also part of the tea house. They are wonderful as well. We found some beautiful items in the boutique and some tasty pastries to take with us at the bakery. I highly recommend going there and I'll tell all of my friends that go to this area. We came from Mendocino County, about 4 hours west of here, but we will make our way back sometime soon!

I've been to Kate's 3 times in the past 5 years. I'd go more often but it's 2-1/2 hours away. It's been such a delightful experience each time. This time I left with Royal Irish and Almond Orange Rooibos to steep at home. My scone and cucumber sandwiches were excellent. We also visited the Boutique and were able to find unique gifts. Pretty unique to watch the stagecoach go by as we walked to our car!

My husband and I drive from Modesto to Kate's once a month to stock up on the amazing teas, to enjoy a delightful lunch, visit the bakery, and to stroll through the boutique. I was so very excited to see Lavander Lemonaide. A must try on our next trip up. Kate's staff is always so very helpful., that and one of Kate's famous apricot scones.

I had the most delightful surprise when my wife and I visited Columbia Kate's for a break after spending the antiquing in Sonora and Columbia. We were blown away by the friendliness and knowledge of the staff. I asked for a suggestion ona light snack and was told I had to try the Apricot Scone. The server made a couple suggestions on a tea to accompany the scone and we selected the Almond/Orange Black Tea. What a magnificent paring. If you are any where near Columbia or the Gold Country in California, be sure to stop in and try this Gold Nugget of a tea house, just waiting for you to discover. You will feel rich beyond measure.

I had a delicious tea luncheon with several friends this past Sunday! Everything from the waitress to the table setting was delightful! My Buckingham Palace Garden Tea was such a nice compliment to the fabulous Apricot Scone and Chicken Pot Pie - My mom will be getting a Gift Certificate for Christmas! I can't wait to invite friends for a future tea date!

Columbia Kate's has the best Teas hands down out of any tea house I have ever been to! Because I live on the east coast I don't make it out as often as I would like, but never fear they do online orders. The almond orange rooibos is enough to convert even the accomplished tea hater(my boyfriend was one). I also really love some of their berry teas (like the raspberry green which has real berries (I know, surprising, yes?). The quality of all their teas is amazing. I have never ordered a tea that I didn't love off their menu. The tea house food is fabulous and they have lots of creative vegetarian options that don't feel second best at all. Columbia Kate's is also in a great little town, I can recommend panning for gold or shopping the general store when you have had your fill of fabulous tea

Visiting with my two Moms was very pleasant. Adding to it the apricot scone and two pots of different teas made for a splendid event, indeed. Thank you for a time and place to share some special moments.

What a wonderful way to spend time with friends. From the largest tea selection I have ever seen, to the most scrumptious scones, sandwiches and other delectables, this is the place to go! Highly recommend the chicken pot pie and the dessert trio.

I had one of the best chocolate tarts ever here. My husband had bread pudding which was also excellent. The apricot/peach tea was perfect. Our server was cheerful and the atmosphere was lovely.
