Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Table has a rich history
Did you know that Magnolia Table used to go by another name? Before Chip and Joanna took over, there was another diner in its place named Elite Café. The establishment was originally opened back in 1919 on Austin Avenue.
According to the Magnolia Table website, the old restaurant featured a diner-style menu and was the first establishment in Waco to have air conditioning. The place was very popular, so in 1941, the owners decided to open a second location on the Waco Traffic Circle. “It’s even rumored that Elvis Presley shared a meal with friends here on his way to Fort Hood,” said the folks on the Magnolia Table blog.
In 1953, an F5 tornado led to the original location shutting down. The location on the Waco Traffic Circle closed in 2016. However, Chip and Joanna decided to take over and renovate the Waco location and turn it into what we know today at Magnolia table.
Why Chip and Joanna Gaines opened Magnolia Table
One of the reasons Chip decided to proceed with opening Magnolia Table is because breakfast is reportedly his favorite meal of the day. Some of the featured menu items at the restaurant include pancakes, French toast, donut holes, and tater tots.
“I’ve always been a breakfast connoisseur. I always do a heavy, bigger breakfast, but Jo is the exact opposite. She was kind enough to come with me on this one, and we are going to do up a breakfast joint here in town,” Chip told “Southern Living” magazine. The couple also launched a Fixer Upper spinoff called “Behind the Design.” In addition, Joanna released her first design book, titled “Home Body: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave.”
