There’s nothing that soothes the soul like a day spent with friends! And when the day includes delicious food and shopping….well, that’s a day to remember! Where can you go to experience such a day? In Corsicana Texas, at a little jewel known locally as the Uniquely Yours Village!
Tea for Two in Corsicana, Texas
I’m an old fashioned gal, and I sure do love a good Tea Room. For those of you unfamiliar, tea rooms can be found in many small towns and even inside antique malls. The menu is typically finger sandwiches, soups, salads, and of course decadent desserts!
Uniquely Yours in Corsicana, Texas is by far one of the BEST Tea Rooms I’ve enjoyed in a long time!!!
Not only is the food completely delicious (starting with the quality of the pimento cheese…which is SUPURB!), but the venue itself is really something special!
Owner Carol Langham has sourced vintage serving pieces, from glassware to decor, to create an atmosphere that is lovely and whimsical. Our lunch (the Trio….I HIGHLY recommend) was served on vintage Hazel Atlas Snack Plates, which completely delighted me! I love a good Vintage Snack Plate set!!! The staff is kind, and attentive, and I felt like I was enjoying the day with long-lost family.
And actually, Carol IS family to my dear friend Christie Carter. And since friends are the family we choose, I choose to call Carol my family too!
Restaurants in Corsicana
Uniquely Yours Tea Room is open Wednesday-Saturday from 11am to 2pm. Reservations are not necessary, but if you want to make a reservation, you can request the room of your choice, choosing between Faith, Hope, and Love! Each room is BEAUTIFULLY decorated and will be sure to suit your needs and the size of your group. Also, if you are looking for a place to hold your event, there is a large screened in patio which provides lots of natural light, as well as three rooms inside with beautiful lace tablecloths and fine linens.
The Tea Room is a great place to host a wedding or baby shower, reception, office meeting, holiday party, birthday celebration, bible study, family reunion….or a day trip from Dallas with friends. It’s a short 45 minute drive south on I45 from Dallas and an hour and thirty minutes drive west from Tyler.
Uniquely Yours is certainly one of the most special restaurants in Corsicana, but this little “Village” is more than simply a place to enjoy lunch! There’s shopping too!
Next door to the Tea Room is the Uniquely Yours Dress Shop. A wonderful old home that has been converted into a fantastic women’s clothing shop! The day I visited, my friends Christie and Paige and I did some SERIOUS Retail Therapy Shopping! We had a BALL, and came home with darling new duds!
Navarro County History
I love historic preservation, especially when it comes to Historic Homes. And Carol has succeeded in preserving Navarro County History!
The Uniquely Yours Treasures Gift Shop was built in the late eighteen hundreds, it’s charm and character still remains. Two families lived in this home, later becoming a flower shop for many years.
In October of 2015, the house was moved in its entirety to its new home, becoming Uniquely Yours Treasures. This quaint house is filled with rich character depicting its journey through the years. Today, local artists and artisans showcase their creative talents and offer a variety of treasures to be purchased! Come and see these UNIQUE treasures for yourself… you will not be disappointed!
Take a break from the crazy pace of life, and take short road trip back in time to this jewel in the heart of Corsicana, Texas! And tell them I sent you!
