This week on DineSafe: Astra Deli, Bach Yen, Creme A Sweet Buzz, Berries and Blooms, Gold Diamond, Hasty Market, Ristorante Roma, Times Square Diner

Posted by Robyn Urback / November 13, 2012

toronto dinesafeThis week on DineSafe includes a York U shout-out and Danforth Avenue delinquent. First, it's Berries and Blooms over in York Lanes, which finds itself with nine health infractions after a year of relatively good inspections. I actually thought worse of you, Berries, so good job (until now, that is). Creme A Sweet Buzz at Danforth and Pape also deserves honourable mention this week, not so much for its four recent infractions, but for a conditional pass so soon after a closure back in May. Well done, all. Here's a look at some of the DineSafe notables this week.

I used to buy the custard tarts at Creme all the time - they were sooo good. Stopped going there after the owner thought it would be OK to use his fingers to help scoop gelato into a container.

Hey guys, really would it kill you to list the address in the article? Or at least the neighbourhood? I already clicked a link to read this article, do I need to click eight more links to get the locations that should be included in the article?

I agree. Include the address please. Following the links just lead to a not-so-helpfule message "The DineSafe site is temporarily down for a scheduled maintenance."
