The name would suggest only Teas, however they serve great sandwiches and related Tea goods... They offer dining both inside, as well as a really cute patio dining area. Neat place...

We had a late lunch based on a recommendation from the Jamestown Railroad. Food was healthy, flavorful and the portions were perfect. Wonderful scones and tea and sandwiches. The service was great, with lots of smiles and attention to detail. Would definitely recommend.

We called to make a reservation but they weren't answering phones. (Why not use a wait list app?). So we had a 45 min wait which the owner discounted by saying " a lot of tables are finishing up so it shouldn't be too long"....More

Set in an 1880's period barn in historic Columbia, CA, our focus is in providing both an education in the Art of Afternoon Tea and enhancing a visitor's experience of Columbia while offering a pleasant atmosphere and a modicum of culture to a gold mining town. Beautiful Columbia, with Main Street looking north from the Wells Fargo Building. Columbia Kate's is just up the street and right on State Street, one block over to Columbia Street.
