Although they have lots of choices for veggie etc diets...the food had NO taste. Seats are not made for sitting, parking is horrible, too many wait staff but you don't get waited on, out of 5 guests (one a child she brought her own banana) nobody felt their food tasted like anything. One only ate the fruit..I was hungry i... More

My family went here for a late morning breakfast and while the experience started off well, we were greeted quickly and received our coffees fast, that changed. We ordered my daughter a muffin, my husband ordered the chicken and waffles and myself a breakfast sandwich. We received the muffin quickly but time passed as we watched surrounding tables sit AFTER... More

We dined here both mornings on a weekend get away. I'm a picky eater, so I'm hard to please. We found it by accident driving, enjoyed it thoroughly and went back the next day. All I can say is this is a 'hidden gem' in Charleston! Your taste buds deserve this treat!!! Amazing food and Superior customer service!!! Very nice... More

Walked down hoping for a nice hot cup of local coffee. Coffee was no more flavorful than Folgers back home. Did not eat here.

Coffee, teas and snacks and many varieties of bagels for a decent breakfast or lunch. Good place to gather for light business get-togethers. Kind of on the expensive side

Had a pleasant breakfast at this establishment near our hotel. We are not big breakfast eaters but require good coffee! My husband had their blueberry muffin and I had their Tree Hugger - homemade granola on top of yogurt surrounded with fresh fruit. I loved my dish - muffin just OK. Of course they had other menu options for breakfast... More

Breakfast on Folly has limited choices, but a morning walk down Center Street led me here. Coffee, lattes, and the like were all available, but I opted for an awesome berry smoothie. The sandwich list was inviting, and wraps sounded and looked tasty. All-in-one breakfast item is the Folly Mess: 2 eggs, hash browns, onions, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, with a... More

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.
