A popular cafe that does brisk business in the spring and summer was closed over Easter weekend due to a rodent infestation.
Kalendar, in Swain’s Lane, Highgate, was shut by environment health officers from Camden Council, who decided that the mouse problem was a potential health risk.
According to a notice taped to the door, there was “extensive, widespread and uncontrolled mice activity” when inspectors visited last Tuesday.
Cllr Abdul Hai, cabinet member for community safety, said: “The council takes the health and wellbeing of residents and visitors to Camden extremely seriously and regularly takes action to protect consumers across the borough.
“As part of a routine food hygiene inspection at Kalendar, council environmental health officers believed the condition of the premises could be an imminent risk to health, and as a result issued a hygiene emergency prohibition notice in accordance with the food law code of practice.”
