Food, glorious food! If you like to sample this and sip on that, this is what you’ve been waiting for! From farm to table meals you’ll only find in Thomasville to twists on southern classics, there’s something on the menu you’ll love!
Rise and shine! Nothing says “You’re in the South” like a big ole biscuit. Best place for that is the Q-Café where the biscuits are as big as a cat’s head! Or, maybe you’re a bagels and schmear kind of person. We got that, too. Empire Bagel has handmade fresh bagels every morning, with everything you can imagine to schmear on the top. Get there early and watch them hand-roll the bagels right in front of you.
After a great breakfast, it’s time to blend food and history with the Taste of Thomasville Food Tour. See why it’s been featured in Southern Living Magazine, and garnered quite a few awards and accolades. The tour takes you through the historic downtown, stopping in six locations for bites and history. Make sure you have some comfy shoes.
Looking for an afternoon pick me up? If it’s gourmet chocolate you want, head over to Sweet Cacao Chocolates. They make all their chocolates fresh, and everything is amazing. If you need something a little stronger, get a brew at Hubs and Hops and watch a little of the latest game on one of their big screen tv’s. This unique little spot is one half beer pub and the other half bike store.
Told your foodie friends you’d bring something back for them? We got you covered.
Farmer’s Daughter Vineyards Tasting Room has award-winning wines that you can buy by the glass, bottle or case. Red, white, sweet, dry, and everything in between, Farmer’s Daughter brings the French countryside to the south.

Featuring jams, jellies, salsas, and syrups all made right here in Thomas County, the Blackberry Patch never disappoints. Oh, and you may have heard- it’s one of Oprah’s Favorite Things! Find an assortment at the Thomasville Visitors Center or at the Farmers Market.
It’s time for dinner, and for the true foodie, Liam’s or Chop House on the Bricks offer gourmet dining at it’s finest. Order some cocktails or small plates at Liam’s lounge, or indulge in dinner for two that’s one to be savored and remembered. Chop House has mouthwatering steaks and seafood as well as handmade cocktails and desserts. Take your time and enjoy every bite (hint: make sure to make reservations).
Before you head home the next morning, visit Sweet and Savory Sisters (SASS) for a memorable brunch! The SASS gals have been featured on the Food Network and other outlets throughout the south. Their shrimp and grits are delish, and the freshly made beignets are a must! And if Mimosas are in order, then order two!
