Chip and Joanna Gaines Debuted a Bunch of New Dishes at Their Restaurant and We're Already Hungry
We can't get these lemon blueberry pancakes out of our heads.
Chip and Joanna Gaines’ first restaurant, Magnolia Table, has officially been open for a year now, and they’re celebrating the milestone with some new menu additions for spring.
Adding to their current list of Southern comfort food classics like biscuits and gravy, deviled eggs and breakfast tacos, the Gaines’ are beefing up their menu with a new selection of salads, sandwiches, desserts and brunch items. Based on the pictures, we’re itching to get to Waco, Texas, ASAP.
See the new spring menu items below.
Asparagus Fontina Quiche
This new quiche promises a “flaky, buttery pie crust” stuffed with eggs, asparagus and a blend of fontina and gruyere cheese. Thick slices of heirloom tomatoes bring color on the side.
Egg Salad Sandwich
Get a taste of Jo’s own recipe! This egg salad is served on a croissant with butter lettuce and heirloom tomato, and comes with kettle chips and a pickle spear for a salty side.
A trio of finger sandwiches for when you’re feeling dainty. Sandwiches include chicken salad, egg salad and pimiento cheese, and the sampler comes served with a seasonal berry salad and a cup of soup of your choice.
Lemon Blueberry Pancakes
Putting a fruity spin on their classic pancakes, these flapjacks are filled with blueberries and lemon zest and topped with lemon butter. Two eggs cooked to order, homemade tots and sausage or pepper bacon come on the side.
This wheat wrap comes stuffed with watermelon radish, avocado, mixed greens, cucumber and heirloom tomato, all smeared with an herbed cream cheese. The healthy option is served with fruit and house-made ranch topped with chives for dipping.
Spring Berry Salad
Roasted chicken, fresh berries, chopped pecans and feta cheese all come tossed in this salad, which is dressed with a house-made honey vinaigrette. A perfect meal if you want to feel better about indulging in the sweets ahead…
The classic carrot cake you know and love, with layers on layers of cream cheese frosting.
Toasted Coconut and Carrot Cake Cupcakes
A new season also means new cupcakes at Silos Baking Co., the quaint Waco bakery also own by the Gaines’. Toasted coconut and carrot cake cupcakes can be expected to line their shelves soon.

Riding the coattails of Magnolia Table’s success, it was recently reported that the Gaines’ will be opening a coffee shop in downtown Waco. The coffee shop will offer a full-service coffee bar, fresh-baked pastries and an assortment of teas, with a to-go window and indoor-outdoor seating.
The much-anticipated new venture will be located at 418 S. Eighth Street, a block away from the couples’ Magnolia Market at the Silos, in a building that formerly housed CrossFit Waco.
