Columbia Kate's is one of the Mother Lodes best kept secrets. The food and desserts are fresh and flavorfully old fashion and handmade with love and great care, bringing back memories of flavors I haven't tasted since my childhood. The tea flavors are multi-dimensional and unlike any I have ever tasted and the presentation is wonderful. The quality of service is superb and the atmosphere is quaint, reminds me of Grandma's House. Kate's is not just any teahouse, it is an experience!!
