While the food was just ok , the service lacked . Don’t expect biscuits and gravy as they don’t serve gravy other then Saturday’s. Portions were nice but overall just ok . Very small place , booths even smaller .

We made a quick stop in Georgetown for a late breakfast/brunch on our family vacation. Interesting town with lots of history. Thomas Cafe had hands down the best shrimp & grits we’ve had.

...but the building is in really, really rough shape...the reviews I read all mentioned the “stepping back in time” feeling...no it’s just stepping into an old building that needs a facelift and a good cleaning. Staff was not friendly and we will never go back.
