JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Café Du Marche is located on San Jose Boulevard in Jacksonville. The current owners have been operating it for three years and say they're known for their made from scratch specialties. The state health inspector documented 19 violations at Cafe Du Marche this week. Six of those violations were considered high priority - meaning they could make you sick.

Here's what we found in the latest health inspection for Café Du Marche:

Potentially hazardous food like spinach, ham and half and half - held at greater than 41 degrees
Raw animal food stored over ready to eat food in the walk-in freezer
A toxic item (ajax cleaner) was stored too close to the napkins

Part owner, Lola, says, "The marks are little stuff. If you read the violations very carefully it will show you that they were all minor items that do not affect the health of the customer. We have taken care of every violation. We take care of our customers and I assure them there is nothing to worry about."

Other restaurants at the top of the high priority list this week include:

VIP Juice Bar on A1A South in Saint Augustine. There were six high priority violations including fish sauce held at 70 degrees - it's supposed to be kept at 41.

At Bono's on Merrill Road in Jacksonville, there were also six high priority violations including live roaches. One was found and killed in the women's bathroom.

There were no restaurants with perfect health inspections this week.
