Dining at Magnolia Market

Along with shopping for home goods and apparel, Magnolia Market also has plenty of dining options.

Here are our favorites.

Silos Baking Co.

The Silos Baking Co. is actually located just next door to the market and still most people almost never it.

The reason is almost a block-long waiting line that completely obscures the door to the bakery!

The Silos bakery is popular for good reason – the goods here are delicious and those with a sweet tooth rave about this place!

They serve fresh-baked cupcakes, pastries, cookies, scones, and other treats.

Their cinnamon rolls are delicious and best when eaten fresh.

Look for a small sign that says “Silos Baking Co.” near the Front Door of Magnolia and get in line to enjoy your baked goods!

Tip: The lines are the worst especially around late afternoon on the weekend. Skip the line at the bakery and instead get your cupcake at the airstream trailer inside Magnolia Market! (see below)

Food Trucks

There are several different food trucks inside the market.

The Cheddar Box food truck serves up a variety of grilled cheese combinations from the classic grilled cheese sandwich to toppings like guac, pork, and salsa, perfect for satisfying your hunger.

The Little Brisket food truck, run by the Guess Family BBQ, serves up some of the best-smoked meats we’ve ever had – brisket, pulled pork, and more!

The Club Sandwich food truck offers Asian rice bowl combos while 900 Degrees Pizzeria has some of the best pizzas in Waco, Texas.

Silos Baking Co.also has limited faves available here.

You’ll also find other goodies here including snow cones, smoothies, and popcorn.

Don’t forget to get sweet tea from the Alabama Sweet Tea Company!

While the initial mason glass jar of tea is expensive, refills are pretty cheap and very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Magnolia Table

Magnolia Table is the famous restaurant run by the Gaines.

For many visitors to the Silos, dining at Magnolia Table is a must.

The restaurant does not take reservations and is known for the super long wait lines.

But the wait is worth it, especially for Fixer-Upper fans.

Once inside, you will be treated to a lovely atmosphere, charming rustic decor, and delicious food.

Their biscuits are particularly famous as are several other dishes on the menu.

Magnolia table is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday to Saturday.

The restaurant is not located on the Magnolia Market property but farther away at 2132 S Valley Mills Dr, Waco, TX 76706.

Magnolia Press Coffee Co.

This is the newest venture by the Gaines.

The Magnolia Press coffee shop is located at a far corner behind the Granary building and is closer to Mganolia Home and the back door entrance.

The cute coffee shop is a must for fans.

Visitors love the steeple, cathedral ceiling, clapboard exterior, and warm wood elements inside.

The church is incredibly beautiful and definitely worth the visit.
