• Roaches, flies briefly close Village Bread Cafe at The Landing


    One Jacksonville restaurant was shut down for several days because of a pest control issue.

    At Village Bread Cafe on Independent Drive, a health inspector counted 25 live flies and gnats, 39 live roaches in the kitchen, and four cold food items including bleu cheese and marinara that were held too warm.

    It was temporarily closed for four days to deal with pest control issues and renew its expired restaurant license before being allowed to reopen.

    At The Pig Seafood on Lem Turner Road in Jacksonville, a health inspector counted more than 60 rodent droppings, nine dead roaches, and five live flies. A follow-up inspection was performed, and the Pig Seafood met all inspection requirements.

    At Nonna’s Trattoria in St. Augustine a health inspector noted two live flies in the dining area, issued a stop sale on meat sauce because of temperature issues, and the restaurant was operating without a valid restaurant license.

    A follow-up inspection is required.
