Do you believe in black magic? This kind, for sure.
Housed in a small, brightly colored cottage off West Erie Avenue on Folly Beach, the Black Magic Cafe churns out omelets, breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads, smoothies and, of course, coffee.
It’s an enchanting addition to the Edge of America; the town seems to be teeming with small, inventive eateries such as The ’Wich Doctor, The Drop In and the classic Lost Dog Cafe.
The cafe can claim an impressive menu, which is scrawled in chalk and angled at an incline above the counter.
Take a minute; you’ll need to digest all your options. And remember, breakfast is served all day long here.
To wit, choose among the several breakfast sandwiches containing the likes of scrambled eggs, Havarti cheese, greens, tomatoes or herb mayo.
The Pipeline ($7) combines eggs, avocado, mango-peach salsa, sour cream, spinach and chickpeas inside a wrap.
Also enticing: specials such as the caramel French toast with powdered sugar on a croissant.
And we haven’t even addressed lunch yet.
You can’t miss with much, counting the Sandbar Special panini ($8.50), which combines feta cheese, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, chickpeas, tomatoes, a mess of greens and a slather of hummus.
There’s also the Angel Oak with turkey, Havarti cheese, onions, avocado, sprouts and herb mayo, among several others.
And whether truly magical or not, it makes no difference, for this is a charming enterprise, one that you should visit soon.
