The breakfast here is ridiculously good! I don't know why this isn't the most talked about place in charleston/folly beach. The food was so good we came back the same week. The people were very friendly, the food was amazing. Recommendations: chicken biscuit, palmetto sizzler, and folly cristo. So delicous.

A breakfast and lunch spot. Serves normal things such as you would expect, but adds their own specials. Everything we had was quite good. Like many places in Folly Beach, they allow and welcome dogs, though only on the patio outside.

We shared an assortment of three breakfast entrees and all were equally tasty. The Cappuccino was smooth and tasted great.

The Black Magic Cafe is a great spot for breakfast or lunch at Folly Beach. The service is good and the food is always tasty. Great muffins and coffee too.

Took the whole family here for lunch over the holidays, quite a find! Food was great, service excellent and the coffee bar was an added benefit on a cold, rainy day! Will definitely be returning on our next rip to Folly Beach!

My husband and I will be returning to see Crysta and crew every time we visit Folly Beach. Not only are they friendly and helpful, but the menu is deliciously creative and attractively presented. Huevos Ranchero was my husband's fav; I liked the avocado salad with their special pesto dressing. Also, worth mentioning are the yummy chocolate-filled croissants. I feel... More

We used to go to a nearby breakfast joint, but the queues were always long. Then we discovered Black Magic Cafe. The menu is awesome, from healthy to naughty. Our dog is welcome on the outdoor deck. They do great coffee, and best of all, the queues are short, the staff are on the ball, and the service is always... More

I had the West Ashley omelet and my friend had the East Cooper Omelet. We both commented on how generous the cook was with the fillings. I was pleased to note that bacon was one of the sides offered with the omelets. I'm used to having to pay extra for that. Great place for breakfast.

The egg/bacon pressed sandwich was delicious, but all of the pastries looked like they just came out of the wrapper from Harris Tweeter. Definitely not local ingredients and homemade, as the menu says. Loved the service, always with a smile and helpful without being intrusive. Also loved the no-WiFi policy which is great when you're trying to relax, get away... More

David, We appreciate any feedback from customers, however, I have some trouble understanding your review... Are you saying that we sell prepackaged pastries? While we don't make any of our baked goods in house we support local bakeries in Charleston and purchase their products and sell them here. Saffron bakery and our local bagel shop have always made their pastries,... More
