- I went to Chip and
Joanna Gaines‘ MagnoliaCoffee press for to eat lunch.
- My vanilla latte was good, but “Joanna’s salty artichoke
croissant” was the highlight of the meal.
In February, I visited
The Silos are home to the Gaines’ famed Magnolia Market and Silos Baking Co., as well as a dozen stores where “Fixer Upper” fans can purchase Magnolia and other products made by the Gaines.
My first stop at Silos was Magnolia Press, the cafe the Gaineses opened in 2019.
Although Chip and Joanna’s Magnolia Table restaurant is better known for its breakfast menu than Magnolia Press, I wanted to dine at the cafe before exploring the Silos because it was on the property, while Magnolia Table was on the property. other side of town.
When I arrived, I discovered that the menu at Magnolia Press is quite extensive, with three savory dishes
I knew right away that I would order an iced vanilla latte, as it’s my favorite coffee drink.
And while browsing through the menu of dishes, I was drawn to the “salty croissant with artichokes”, a croissant with cream cheese, spinach and artichokes in the center. A Magnolia representative later told me that the breakfast creation was Joanna’s personal recipe.
I figured a croissant stuffed with spinach and artichoke sauce couldn’t be bad, so I ordered it with my latte. I sat down at a cafe counter to dig.
The coffee and croissant looked appetizing and the croissant was warm when a barista handed it to me. My cup and the paper bag the croissant came in were embossed with the Magnolia Press logo.
I took a sip of my coffee before tasting the croissant, and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. The drink had a flavorful balance of caffeine and vanilla, and I found myself wishing the large Magnolia Press mugs were even bigger so I had more to drink.
But my appreciation for coffee pales in comparison to my love for the delicious croissant.
Biting into the buttery batter, I made sure I had a mouthful full of hot dip so I could fully taste Joanna’s creation.
My mouth was watering when I discovered the puff pastry perfectly combined with the savory and salty dip. The buttery croissant also ensured that the spinach and artichoke flavors weren’t too strong, creating a tasty bite every time.
It was rich without being overwhelming, and I finished the perfect pastry much faster than I wanted.
“I get why these people are millionaires,” I immediately texted several friends about Chip and Joanna after inhaling breakfast.
The savory spinach croissant was one of the best breakfast items I have ever had. I would go back to Waco just for another taste of Joanna’s sweet treat.
