See Inside Chip and Joanna Gaines’ New Coffee Shop—Coming To Waco This Fall!
Chip and Joanna Gaines took on a country-home renovation for their friend and colleague, Jimmy Don Holmes, the metalwork artist and owner of JDHIronDesigns.com whose work has played a part in a number of Fixer Upper renovations, as a first time home for their son Jake.
Shortly after renovations started, Jake stumbled upon a home in Valley Mills that he couldn’t pass up. With his future in mind, Jake saw an opportunity and conquered it buying himself a sweet little home a few miles away from Jimmy Don and Lori’s place. Unfortunately, that meant the cabin would be left without an occupant. Knowing that this striking cabin could not be left to waste, Jimmy Don approached Chip and Jo and told them about Jake’s new home. With their blessing, Jimmy Don has decided to open his cabin for short term rentals. He is hoping it will provide some serene views and fun nights away from the business of life and open the doors to help others experience the greatness of this Fixer Upper he was hoping his son would enjoy.

Here’s everything we know about Chip and Joanna’s latest business, opening soon.

It’s already been an exciting year for Chip and Joanna Gaines. Their fifth and final season of Fixer Upper is currently airing on HGTV, they just announced they’re expecting baby number five, and now, the couple is about to open their latest business venture: a restaurant! The hosts have been busy renovating the former Elite Cafe, a popular Waco eatery, into Magnolia Table.
Your favorite design duo’s empire already includes Magnolia Reality, Magnolia Market at the Silos, Silos Baking Co., two inns (the Magnolia House and Hillcrest Estate), and Joanna’s Magnolia Home collection. A restaurant is something new to the team, but they’re not taking it lightly.
“People always say the restaurant business is a beast—and we believe that, we aren’t naive to the fact that this is all new to us—but we are genuinely thrilled that we get the opportunity to restore a Waco treasure into something new,” Joanna wrote in a June update on the Magnolia Market blog. Here’s everything we know about Chip and Joanna’s restaurant so far (plus a first look at the inside):
Magnolia Table will open soon.
Originally, Magnolia Table was supposed to open by the end of 2017. But Joanna revealed that there were “a few setbacks along the way (as there are with every construction project).” Thankfully, they’re now “on the home stretch!”
Though no exact opening date has been announced yet, Joanna teased in a January Instagram caption that Magnolia Table “is getting so close” and “will be open soon.” We know one detail to look out for if you ever get a chance to go: Chip and Jo’s handprints in the cement outside!
Chip recently reiterated that “Construction is wrapping up at the restaurant and we’ll be opening the doors to Magnolia Table soon.”
