Just like Momma made

Everything we had was tasty and freshly prepared. This is real homemade Southern cooking. Try the fried chicken, potato salad, Mac and cheese, green beans, black-eyed peas. The non-Southern Reuben sandwich was fine, served with a pickled okra. Fresh fruit really is fresh!

Food was good, fairly priced, loved the nostalgic atmosphere.....just hated that you could see that they used wal-mart brand juices and left them on the counter so you could so that was what you we're getting.

When I saw the local police eating there I knew if must be good, and it was. I wish it was open for dinner but the lunch fare was excellent, especially the onion rings. Prices were reasonable too.

We were on vacation in the area and went to Thomas Cafe for breakfast so that I could get some real southern grits (vs. the awful stuff they try to pass as grits in OH) - and it was great! I also had some yummy corned beef hash, we had omelets, homefries, eggs, bacon and everything was good, portions were... More

We had breakfast at Thomas Cafe while on vacation and we had a great meal. The menu is quite extensive for breakfast and they have your typical breakfast stuff plus some unique items like a seafood omelet. My husband ate the seafood omelet and it looked good! It was a giant plate of food! I ordered the prince george breakfast... More

Never had a bad meal at Thomas Cafe. Mostly a local hangout. Serves specials and off the menu. The shrimp is most awesome, salads, chicken tenders and the fried green tomatoes are to die for!!

Been coming annually for 20(?) years. Has authentic southern cooking and great local atmosphere. Also, every restaurant I go to I order Key Lime pie and I have never found any restaurant in the US to have key lime pie as good as Thomas Cafe.

We've been enjoying Thomas cafe for over 15 years. Love the breakfasts (and I have tried them all). Best grits in the south and possibly best key lime pie in the country.

We just ate at the Thomas Cafe, first let me say that you can't go by the prices on the menu posted here in Trip Advisor. They raise their prices by $2-$3 per meal for the summer. Our bill was $50 for 2 adults and 2 children. You get a side of $.25 cent bag of Lays chips on the... More
