Hiking Along Aska? – Stop in at The Iron Bridge Cafe – Blue Ridge

The Mountain Life Team Blogger May 18, 2013

?????If you have never been down the beautiful Aska Road in Blue Ridge, you are in for a treat.  This area is known for not only beauty but so many outdoor activities including hiking, fishing or river rafting. The Iron Bridge Cafe and General Store is one of the few eateries in this area.  It is located directly across the street from the Old Shallowford Bridge that was built in 1918.

Located on the Toccoa River, this quaint cafe is absolutely adorable and delicious.  Specializing in breakfast and lunch, this is a great place to stop for friendly service by owners Mary and Angie and to get a wonderful meal to cure those hunger pains after all that outdoor activity!  The Lily Pad Village is also located a short distance from the cafe. After the family has enjoyed a round of mini golf, bring them here for a great lunch.

Their menu is varied and my group raved over the meatball sandwich!!  It was awesome!  The small general store is great because it carries a variety of staple items for rafters or cabin renters in the area.  You can pick up some basic items here without having to go into town!  I highly recommend dropping in this cafe.  You will be impressed with the friendliness and service.  While you are here, let The Mountain Life Team show you some amazing cabins in the Aska area.
