This week on DineSafe: African House, Bread and Greens, Cobs Bread, D&R Wings, Hot Dog Stand, Nortown Foods, Sugar Sweet Cafe, Sushi 4 U

This week on DineSafe saw just one insect-related closure; yes, it was a good week! The culprit this time was African House up in North York, which was caught with an insect problem along with various other infractions during inspection. Joining African House on the DineSafe low list this week is Sugar Sweet CafĂŠ in Scarborough with a yellow flag (it is no stranger to the conditional pass), along with Norton Foods on Eglinton, which had enjoyed a stellar record up until now.
