No shortage on personality and fresh ingredients at Black Magic Cafe! We were visiting the island and took a chance. I ordered the Ashley wrap and added chicken. This is a must for fresh sandwich lovers! Our table was happy and full. Thank you for great service and fresh food.

This place came as a recommendation by a relative that lives on James and he had not steered us wrong so far! Black Magic Café is located off a side street near the beach so it is pretty much walking distance if you are on Folly. There were four of us and we split two breakfast entrees. My partner and...

The food was awesome and the wait staff was kind....I saw the sign about no laptops..Etc. I thought of it as odd but then realized many may come in a take up valuable space over time. I read the awesome review by an individual about this issue. What really surprised me was the management response. Hopefully the manager is the... More

Food was really good and the wide selection of menu items was a pleasant surprise! Definitely love that they source a lot of their ingredients local as well.

Went here for lunch and breakfast. My sandwich was okay (better heated, turkey/prociutto on croissant) but breakfast (nutty granola) was really good. Very friendly service, kitschy decor. Good spot.

This second Black Magic Café recently opened on Folly Road. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with the exception of the dry, bland grits (creamy grits would be better!). Friendly staff, interesting décor with lots of fun signs on the walls. We'll be back for lunch.

I decided to visit their new restaurant on Folly Road on James Island. This is not what Charleston hospitality is about, this is not what Folly Beach hospitality is about and this is not what James Island hospitality is about - maybe a hint of IOP though. First time for everything; first time to feel unwelcome in a restaurant. I... More
