The cute corner coffee shop we’ve always dreamed about is officially open! Magnolia Press sits on the corner of 8th and Webster, just a short walk down the street from the Silos. Here’s a look at how it all came together:
Opening a coffee shop felt symbolic for what we hope people find when they come visit us in Waco—a space to be inspired and simply savor the time they’re spending with family and friends. In a world where everything feels rushed, there’s a familiar and worthwhile pause waiting for us in a good cup of coffee—and chocolate cake—which we also serve at the Press!
We’re especially excited about the custom furniture Jo designed that you’ll find throughout the Press. The cabinetry, booths, and community tables were all handmade right here in Waco.
Jo chose a dark green paint color called 1905 GreenOpens in new tab because it added warmth and charm that felt just right for a cozy coffee shop.
It was fun to design around this bold color, and once the furniture and decor came in, the whole space really came to life. Here’s a closer look:
Once you open the doors to Magnolia Press, we hope you feel invited to take a seat and stay awhile—of course with a good cup of coffee in hand. And don’t forget to share your visit with us by tagging @visitmagnoliaOpens in new tab. See you soon!
