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 right on the premises.

“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”

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.

Today, July 10, 2013 was my first visit to Kate's Tea House. I and my two friends enjoyed emensly the choices of tea and dining selections and shared a 4 cup tea pot of Lavender Earl Gray with delicious chicken salad sandwiches and chicken pot pie. I loved the decor and can't wait to go back for another wonderful experience. Oh yes, did I mentioned the waitresses were most friendly and attentive. I give the entire time spent there Five Stars.

I love Columbia Kate's with all my heart! We visited 3 times during our honeymoon trip to Gold Country. We were greeted right away by Clare, the teahouse owner, and took a lovely seat by the window where we could look out onto beautiful Columbia, or look within at the absolutely adorable atmosphere. The tea list was was lengthy without being overwhelming. We first tried Russian Caravan - a delicious smokey black tea. We ordered a 4 cup pot along with two cups of smokey maple butternut squash soup. Heavenly. The food menu and and combinations are well thought, supplying a choice for every appetite and pocketbook. On our second visit, we came hungry and ordered the Motherlode Tea and the Dondero tea. The scones were the best I've had - apricot and white chocolate served fresh with cream, lem... (more)

My husband and I live in the Mother Lode and discovered Kate's on a trip to Columbia our first November in the area. We love it and come at least once a month for a fix. I am a member of a tea group in Calaveras County and so I am familiar with a good tea experience. This is a great tea experience with fantastic food. The menu has a large variety certain to please everyone.
