Best Places to Get Coffee on Folly Beach

Published on February 8, 2019 by espaid

Morning has arrived. It’s a beautiful sun-drenched day. Or it’s rainy and slightly chilly. No matter. You need that cup of java. Luckily, there are several establishments on Folly that will cater to your coffee craving. And they are all within walking distance of our town home at Water’s Edge.

Black Magic Cafe: We love their coffee. It’s full-bodied and rich. You can get a consistently good cup here. Pick up some croissants or muffins to go with it.

Lost Dog Cafe: Our favorite breakfast spot. We come quite often when we’re at Folly so we could probably walk there blindfolded. Their coffee fills the bill - it is robust (no watery stuff here!)

Center Street Coffee: This small shop on Center Street serves espresso, cappuccino, Americano, lattes, cold brew, as well as pastries. The Turkish coffee flavored with cardamom provides a delicious jolt. There are some tables outside and a few seats and a counter inside, or grab your coffee and go.

Roasted: Location, location, location. If you’re about to take a walk on the beach, or if you’ve just completed your walk, head in to the Tides Hotel next to the pier. Tucked into the left side of the lobby with a big window overlooking the beach is Roasted, which serves Starbucks coffee, along with an assortment of baked goods. There are some tables where you can sit and enjoy your brew with a view.

Berts: This 24-hour market on East Ashley packs a lot in its space. Here you’ll find organic produce, beer on tap, gourmet sandwiches, soaps, flip flops, and much more. It’s a unique island grocery worthy of its own article, so stay tuned. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: free coffee.

We have been hosting guests since 2003 when we bought our first place on Folly Beach, near Charleston, SC. It was something we kind of fell into. One day our friends mentioned a place they bought on Folly and invited us to stay. We headed there during a cold weekend in February and were wowed by the funky island and the amazing view of the river and marsh. The price was low and we decided to buy one as well and rent it out. We have added two more places in the Florida Panhandle and have not looked back.
