For many years Dorris and Daughter Catering was located in the historic Scotia Inn in Scotia. With a wide variety of mouthwatering meals, the duo decided to expand their horizons with a new adventure. Jeanne and her daughter Angie have been the well-known catering duo and now they are striking out to be known for their detail to café life.

Dorris & Daughter Catering is now Dorris & Daughter Catering and Café at 758 10th St. in Fortuna. As the doors opened on their grand opening day and the room filled with customers, Jeanne Dorris filled with laughter and smiles as she adjusted to hands on service from behind the scenes catering. Everyone was having a wonderful time as customers shared experiences with her food from the past and excitement about the new things to come.

The menu is ever-changing. There are always fresh baked goods, quiche, pizza, sandwiches, salads, and wraps. The difference is they are always changing the ingredients.

"We now have a computer and printer at the café so we will now be able to post our menu daily," Jeanne Dorris said. "We also offer free Wi-Fi for those who enjoy web browsing while enjoying their treats."

Kellie Herman posted on the Café Facebook page saying, "I had an Oreo cupcake and let me say ... superb!" Ronel Irish Brooks also posted stating, "Had lunch there and it was fantastic! YUM!!"

The front of the café has a beautiful yellow awning with quaint chairs and tables lining the front window outside. Inside you will find a cheerful comfy environment with quilt lined tables and a friendly greeting.

You can still hire the well know duo for their expansive catering, but for those who want a taste of the magic you can now find them in Fortuna Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
