What a fun place! Buttons and tea knickknacks everywhere! There was a wonderful variety of teas to choose from, and the food was excellent. Our group all tried the Kate's tea. We had a choice of scones (most places just have 'the scone-of-the-day), and this tea has a small salad (again, a choice of several--try the strawberry spinach salad-delicious!) in addition to the sandwiches. No sweets are included in that particular tea, but really, you don't need any, what with the delicious fruit scone to start. Also, by the time you've finished your scone, salad, and tea sanwiches, there's no room for any more! Our hostess Claire was wonderful (turns out she knows a fried of ours). We would definitely return! It makes for a nice stop when you're spending the day in Columbia.
What a wonderful place! The service was excellent, and the food outstanding! The tearoom is light and airy, with an outdoor patio. There was an extensive tea menu with all types of tea to suit any tastes. One member of our group had iced tea, and was given a sample taste of each of the daily specials to help her decide which she wanted. After those of us drinking hot tea had emptied our pots, the owner brought us a different tea to try. All were delicious. The tea sandwiches were very tasty, and Dori said she's frequently changing up the menu. The chicken salad starter was one of the best I've had, and the sweets were absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Dori's---in fact our group was talking about a return trip, as one of our regulars was unable to make this trip--we want her to experience Dori's.
