Bad news, dessert lovers. It looks like you'll have to part ways with the sweet confectionary pleasure of Caffe Demetre for the time being. According to a report from the region of Peel's health inspection website, Mississauga's Caffe Demetre is closed until further notice after the dessert chain location failed to meet food and safety standards during a recent health inspection.
Caffe Demetre is beloved for its decadently delicious dessert waffles and crepes (my personal favourite is the sinfully delicious Tongue Depressor), paired with the chain's rich and creamy housemade ice creams.
The Mississauga Caffe Demetre is located at 285 Enfield Place. With this location now shut down, the nearest Caffe Demetre location for Mississauga residents is now the restaurant located at 90 Courtneypark Drive East, in the northwest region of Mississauga. Otherwise, those yearning for Caffe Demetre's indulgences will have to trek to Oakville, Brampton, Etobicoke, Vaughan, North York, or Toronto's east end.
Based on the inspection report obtained by InSauga, the Mississauga restaurant's operator failed to provide adequate protection against pests. The restaurant also did not keep potentially hazardous food out of dangerous temperatures, posing significant health risks.
As a result, the restaurant location was shut down until further notice. According to InSauga, this is the only failed inspection on this restaurant location's public record. Narcity has reached out to Caffe Demetre for comment and we will update this story when we receive a response.
