We just had to stop for toilet facilities and to grab a bite so we saw the Priest Station Cafe and had a great lunch: vegan burger and spinach with feta cheese burger. Recommend it!

Excellent food. Delicious vegetarian meal. I had an excellent veggie burger and the best sweet potatoe fries I had ever eaten. It is always good.
