I am always skeptical of a Bloody Mary since most use terrible tomato juice with no flavor. Well, to my objection, my wife ordered me one and it was Excellent! Nicely garnished and bursting with flavor. Enough about the drink, the food is delicious. Recommend the Gershwin and breakfast burrito. We go to Black Magic over Lost Dog any day.

This is a great place to wake up. Restaurant was clean and the staff were busy, but friendly. Good coffee and the best chicken and waffles!

Yum, yum, yum is my first thought when it comes to Black Magic Cafe. We were a large party of 11 at breakfast and the staff was so accommodating. Great beach breakfast spot with several choices for food and drink. I had the French toast that was made with croissants and topped with strawberries and bananas. By miles, the best... More

We arrived at Folly Island before the Sand and Sea Festival began so decided on a little breakfast. We stopped by Black Magic Café, a fun little spot... had a simple breakfast that was tasty. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. Nice place.

We enjoyed a table for 4. There were 3 of us. I enjoyed scrambled eggs, a muffin, and fruit! I also ordered tea! It was very good . The decor was fun and we loved to read the verses on the long wall! We ate inside on a Friday morning! I was purchased a t shirt for $15.00. Very enjoyable!!!

We enjoyed a great breakfast out on the patio with excellent service and very tasty Bloody Mary's! They were very willing to exchange items on your order to suit your tastes. I expect lunch and dinner are no different.

It is very rare that I go to a restaurant and have a hard time deciding what to eat. Being a vegetarian limits your options but this place had more than enough choices. Surprisingly affordable considering the selection of foods.
