It should be renamed the the "Not so magic cafe" Awful service, cold toasties and long delays and no apology whatsoever. This cafe is the reason why Starbucks, Costa etc are popular and busy.

Pretty little cafe on Fulham Road-I haven't eaten here but enjoyed a really good latte-and have returned for another! Staff are friendly and there is a very relaxed feel inside, you can also sit outside!

Finally the smaller independent coffee houses are getting that we want almond milk as well as a soya alternative! Musetti coffee is always good and this place did not fail to impress me

I popped in to the Magic Cafe a few months ago and was really impressed with the friendly and quick service. My waitress Gabrielle was charming and helped me order snacks despite my food intolerance's. A lovely little cafe to watch the world go by with a nice latte. :)

A nice change from the typical fulham brunch culture. This independent cafe is decorated in a rustic french style and serves homemade cakes, coffees and nibbles. It has no pretences and the red velvet cake is particularly good! Great value for money too.

The food was amazing. The service a wide menu: ranging from croissants, cakes and scones to cooked food eg full English breakfast, scrambled egg on toast etc. Great value for money. Awesome coffee, too. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient when I visited, and made everyone feel welcome, especially the children. The atmosphere was warm and inclusive, and it... More

I live 100m from the Magic Cafe but this was only my second visit in all the time it's been open, and I'm not sure I'll be rushing back. Staff pleasant but no real engagement and my 'drink in' macchiato was served in a cold cup so no time to slowly enjoy the coffee before it too was cold. Also... More

This is only the second time I've been here for lunch with my dad who is not terribly mobile. We were greeted by 'lovely to see you again' - how nice is that? The food was really fresh, my baguette was freshly made and delicious and my dad's omelette was fluffy and straight out of,the pan. There is such a... More

Had a sandwich with salami and cheese instead of a regular lunch. Quite good and a friendly staff in this local cafe.
