It has been a year since local favorite MarTeres reopened under new owner, Shan Mathis. In that year she has stayed true to her word to keep serving the same great food we came to expect from the local favorite.

To celebrate, they are offering an 11% discount on meals this week. Dine in or take out and you will receive 11% off on your food to celebrate.

I have had a great time watching the business come back and thrive. They have already completely sold out their Christmas Tea with Santa on Saturday, December 17th among many other accomplishments.

MarTeres Tea Room Teams Up With Local Community Garden

I have been very vocal in my support for the Lufkin Urban Garden & Market and all the great things the Legacy Institute For Financial Education has done with it. When I found out that MarTeres was serving up their amazing locally-grown produce, I thought it was a match made in taste bud heaven.

To have the best food, you have to have the best ingredients. Their special this week is meatloaf, fresh purple hull peas, and collard greens.

The collard greens come from the Lufkin Urban Garden & Market and are picked fresh daily. This use of organically grown local produce is a direct path to flavor town.
