Locacted close to the town clock. Thomas Cafe is a good place to get decent meal. The menu is not extravagant but the food is always hot and tastes great.

My girlfriend and I met here for breakfast while our husbands were out fishing. We loved the blueberry pancakes and coffee! Great service. This is where the locals eat too!!

Laid back locals hangout, with good food and excellent prices. Eating here takes you back to a different place and time. Great Flounder!

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.

Very friendly service, good biscuits and gravy. Kitchen a bit slow....we think they complete each ticket in order instead of having several going at once. Took nearly 30 minutes to get our order, but once it arrived it was delicious. We weren’t in a hurry...More

Had breakfast for first time at Thomas Cafe with Georgetown 'locals' who have partronized the place for years and swore by its great breakfast. At first glance, I didn't expect much since it is a very dated (old) place with a musty smell and, although...More
