This Week on DineSafe: Vesta Lunch, Saving Grace, Balzac's, Brick Street Bakery, Sid's Deli, McGugan's

This week on DineSafe, Balzac's at the Toronto Reference Library got ticketed for failing to keep the cafe animal-free. Just a reminder for coffee-loving pet owners, furry friends are usually welcome only at designated cafes. Not to be outdone, late night king Vesta got dinged (again), as did some other popular spots.
