The Mix is all about new and old friends and great food.  Delectable quiche, award-winning soup & unique entrees are served with passion and a desire to know each and every guest. The café is well-known for being comforting and creative through the guidance of owner Betsy Ferguson and Chef Jesse Martinez.  Menu items are created daily from scratch like the decadent "Beast" flourless chocolate cake, fall-apart Dr. Pepper braised short ribs, and classic sides like homemade mac & cheese, and grilled veggies.   The café is open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and now serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday nights--walk-ins, reservations, and groups just looking for a great place to fellowship and relax are all welcome.

Our two party rooms provide the perfect setting for your next bridal or baby shower. The Mix Gifts offers specialty items for every woman you know and beautiful accessories for the home. To serve all budgets and ages, the shop constantly reworks its selection to satisfy its customers and friends. Located just across from Midway Middle School, the Mix is a delight for all who enter. Aromas of just baked fresh desserts and the Special of the Day fill the air as you stroll through an abundance of treasures. Our number one concern is excellent customer service - our desire is to help you find exactly what you're looking for!

See you soon.

"Best Cafe in Waco area. After spending a summer in Waco, I found that The Mix is hands down the best cafe in Waco. The chef knows what he's doing, the menu offers relief for all kinds of food moods--sandwiches, salads, soups, wraps, paninis, and the entrees are always mouth watering."
