Review by Mary Stafford
Special to The Roanoke Times
The small town of Pembroke in Giles County has long been known for its speed traps and waterfalls. For those looking to grab a bite to eat between hiking and racking up speeding tickets, Cascade Cafe provides satisfying meals at a reasonable price.
Cascade Cafe sits inside the Tangent Outfitters shop, a hybrid retail space that looks like part modern convenience store, part Cabela’s showroom, and part bistro. There is something for everyone at Tangent — fly rods, fuel, outdoor apparel, beer, chainsaw sharpening, kayak rentals or river guide service — one can find it all at this unique destination.
The shop’s busy location on the corner of U.S. 460 and Cascade Drive makes it a convenient stop for both locals and passers-by.
My recent visit to Cascade Cafe followed a Saturday hike to the Cascade Waterfalls with a group of friends. We headed from our hike to the cafe with tired legs and growling bellies.
