First rodents, now roaches. San Francisco's food producers can't seem to keep the pests away.

The San Francisco Health Department has reportedly closed down West Portal's Cafe for All Seasons after inspectors discovered a "severe infestation" of cockroaches squatting in the eatery.

According to the Chron, the roaches were just one of many health violations the cafe had, including improper food holding temperatures, improper food handling, inadequate

hand washing, and lack of food safety knowledge.

Mmmm. Doesn't that make you want to take the next bite of your sandwich?

The cafe's owners will have a chance to address the issue(s) at a hearing on Tuesday; however, that doesn't mean they will be open again for business without some serious cleanup, health officials said.

"They're going to have to clean up the place and have pest control do massive extermination," Kenny Wong, principle health inspector, told the newspaper today.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
