Great Breakfast Spot with Personality

We were looking for a place for a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast and I wanted some down home southern cooking. We happened upon Thomas Cafe and were exceedingly pleased with both the food and service. We look forward to a return visit as we've just barely scratched the surface of things to... read more

Ok. I will say this, the place is quaint and the staff is friendly. The food on the other hand was ok. Biscuits were good, pancakes tasted like out was made with cheap flour and the grits tasted bland. It was ok I would've been more satisfied with I hop. I will visit again for lunch options when I'm in... More

Stopped in for breakfast one morning and had a feast. Had a creole omelet with shrimp and some kind of creole sauce that was out of this world! Hash browns and toast completed the meal for me. Had a little Southern House Wine (sweet tea!) with my breakfast.....outstanding!

My husband and I have visited the Myrtle Beach area for a week in each of the past several years, and we usually make the drive to Georgetown to walk along the boardwalk and Front Street, but mostly to have lunch at Thomas Cafe. This is a small and unassuming cafe, mostly patronized by locals, with good and inexpensive local... More

During Georgetown's fabulous National Boatbuilding Challenge and Wooden boat show I had Saturday breakfast here. What a great menu and high quality food in a real down home environment. There were at least three entrees I wanted to try. Their specials truly are special. This is a must stop if you are visiting Georgetown.

Small café in the heart of downtown Georgetown. The staff was very friendly and the prices for lunch are reasonable, rice and gravy was very good but the fried chicken was awful dry. That's it!

A small, quaint, locals restaurant right on Front St. serves GREAT meals at unbelievable prices. Nothing fancy, rather plain, but you won't find a better deal anywhere. Can't wait to return there our next time we're in Georgetown.

We loved the shrimp & grits with fried green tomatoes and the key lime pie. It felt more like a diner (that hasn't changed in 50 years) than a cafe. Prices were very reasonable and the kids menu was great for our kids. Our 5 year old tried (and liked) the pickled okra. The service however was not particularly friendly... More

Once again, great selection of home town favorites, great service, wonderful unspoiled atmosphere and very fair prices. Always great to visit when home.

Thomas Cafe is a magnet for local residents and those who live in some of the communities over the bridge in Pawleys Island. You can taste the South in every dish, whether it is a simple preparation of eggs over easy or the indigenous shrimp and grits (frankly, the only way I like grits, so I am ecstatic that potatoes...
