DineSafe Toronto

This Week on DineSafe: Coffee Lime, Gold Stone Noodle, Green Beanery, India Palace, Marche, Pho Orchid, Sandwich Box, Sunrise House

This week on DineSafe, those who were bad, were really bad. Granted, not bad enough to get shut down altogether, but the restaurants and cafes given conditional passes this week didn't simply manage a meager two or three infractions. No, take The Green Beanery in the Annex, India Palace on Queen West, and Gold Stone Noodle on Spadina — all of which were slapped with seven infractions. Beating them was Sandwich Box at Yonge and Eglinton with an impressive (unimpressive?) tally of nine, but the winner this week has to the pseudo big-chain-knockoff at Pape and Floyd named "Coffee Lime," which rang in with 11 total infractions.

The message from Toronto Public Health this week seems to be, "don't let your food go bad," but based on the lengths of these reports, it's obviously there were several other themes the inspectors were trying to convey. And I'm off to do a little more cooking from my own home kitchen.
