Went to the Black Magic Cafe with a friend for breakfast on a Saturday. It's a very popular restaurant, so we had to wait a few minutes for a table, but not long. Our server was extremely knowledgable and pleasant and the food was super tasty. Although there are several really interesting choices for breakfast, I thought I'd go the... More

Folly Beach is a laid-back spot that appeals to live-and-let-live folks, and this restaurant fits right in. There are three rooms: the main room has air conditioning, the patio room is warm & smells like wet dogs and the outdoor patio welcomes dogs (we weren't allowed to sit there because we didn't have a dog with us). Food is meh... More

You could miss this little place if you did not know it was there. The breakfast we creative and very good and the coffee was excellent. The side patio was nice to sit on in the morning before it got too hot. We will be back next trip to Folly

The service was excellent and friendly. The Morning After burger was one of the best I've ever had. Highly recommended!

Black Magic was ok. I didn't find anything great about it. Pretty much average. We went for breakfast, there are, in my opinion, better food and prices at other places on the island.

That sounds really negative, but most of the other places in town just offer typical boring and rather low quality beach fare. Black Magic offers a nice departure and variety, although our visit at the end of August had 40% of the menu items crossed off as they transitioned to a winter menu. Couldn't wait until after Labor Day?? Service... More

We visited Black Magic Cafe for breakfast one morning during our stay in the Charleston area. Really, the food was pretty average and a little disappointing. I found the food to be a little bland, but perhaps other menu items would have been more impressive. I ordered a smoothie, but once it arrived I realized the $5 smoothie was actually... More

I live in Charleston so I've been here a bit. The food is great, but several times I will stand there waiting to order and the staff will walk right by me at least 6 times before someone will finally take my order. Also, if ordering out expect to wait a bit. Even getting a bagel takes about 15 minutes.... More

I couldn't have asked for a better breakfast. Not only is it amazing food but the staff is super nice. Black Magic has a variety of options whether you are in the mood for omlettees, burgers, wraps and SO MUCH more. They also have an AMAZING drink called the Zippi Bean. I definatly recommend this restaurant when ever you are... More
