DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Church Bistro, Coffee Time, The Thompson Diner, Tim Hortons

We've got ourselves a closure in Toronto this week in Little India as well as a yellow card for a popular 24 hour restaurant in the Thompson Hotel. Also, your Timbits may be tainted. Yup, Tim Hortons at Lake Shore and Kipling got a conditional pass, including a crucial infraction in the form of failure to ensure food is not contaminated. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones with that violation. Take a look at the rest of the weekly roundup.
