Here I am sporting my Magnolia hat just adjacent to the Silos of Magnolia Farms! Mr. G.Q. had a board meeting in Waco, Texas so I tagged along for a bucket list visit.
Our day started at Magnolia table which is a sweet breakfast and lunch spot located two and a half miles from the Silos. But have no fear, there’s a free trolley 🚋 that runs every 12 minutes to ferry you from one spot to the other. There’s also another free trolley 🚋 that circles the sites and shops of downtown Waco. It too, runs about every 15 minutes and you can pick up either one right in front of the entrance to Magnolia Farms.
Every where you look you see clean, crisp black and white signs, tiles, and many, many wonderful details, as we’ve come to expect from Joanna Gaines.
The restaurant is clean and airy with a lovely vaulted ceiling. My breakfast 🍳 was delicious. I ordered the Kind Breakfast which includes gorgeous heirloom tomatoes 🍅, a side salad 🥗, two eggs 🍳, half a avocado 🥑, and one slice of buttered toast 🍞.
As my family knows, one of my pet peeves is well-appointed and well-maintained restrooms. Magnolia Farms definitely got my memo. There are beautiful, spacious bathrooms everywhere.
Don’t you just love the vintage black and white tiles? Oh and the sturdy black stall doors with frosted windows! A+!!! Thanks, Jo!
Next stop after breakfast was a trip to the Silos and the actual Market Place of Magnolia Farms. This place is a two and a half acre compound of well thought out space. It’s all contiguous (except for the above mentioned Magnolia Table restaurant).
I wore a navy J.Crew boyfriend blazer over a navy striped turtleneck with skinny J.Jill dark wash leggings. The hat is washed dark grey cotton (Magnolia Farms), and the scarf is a tissue paper cashmere (old, from Mark Shale) in shades of green, burgundy and orange. Lastly, I wore high black leather high boots (old, Lands End), and a black leather Coach crossbody bag from Mr. G.Q.
The Silos Baking Co. is a fun spot to pick up a delectable cupcake 🧁 or big cookie 🍪! There’s a convenient terrace just outside the bakery for enjoying your treats. Don’t you think this flower box is gorgeous! See what I mean about all the attention to details?
Here are the actual silos, and images from inside the market. There are lots of fun gift items to bring home. There are cookbooks, kitchen accessories, ornaments and much more.
Once we finished shopping the Market Place, we walked to the open courtyard that is surrounded by neat food trucks, beautiful Christmas trees 🎄, a darling vintage truck, and Magnolia Seed and Supply. This shop sells gift ideas for the gardener in your life.
Last, but not least, we stopped at the newest spot in the Magnolia Farms empire. This coffee ☕️ spot is aptly named The Press. This opened two months ago and is a cute spot to grab a cup of coffee ☕️ and maybe a muffin or iced lemon 🍋 blueberry roll. A cute touch at the water station is self-serve water as well as sparkling (my favorite!). Details, details, everywhere! What a fun day!!!
I would recommend a trip to the Silos of Waco, Texas. The place is pristine and the staff are friendly as well as helpful. Thanks to Chip and Joanna for building such a fun destination!
