Popular Elmhurst bubble tea store temporarily shut down by Health Dept.

Aug. 17, 2017 Staff Report

A popular Elmhurst café known for its bubble tea was shut down by the health department earlier this week for unsanitary conditions.

Quickly Cafe, located at 8306 Broadway, was closed Monday by the department after racking up a total of 58 violation points, according to the Health Department website.

The inspection cites the presence of mice and roaches in the food/non food area and failure to properly protect food from contamination. It also points out that the facility is not vermin proof, meaning that it would be possible for vermin to get in to the restaurant.

The Health Department evaluates restaurants based on the point system, with points assigned based on the size and scale of the violation, and indicating what letter grade a restaurant receives. Any restaurant that gets between zero and 13 points receives an A grade, any receiving between 14 and 27 points gets a B grade, and any with 28 or more points gets a C grade.

However, if certain violations are considered especially problematic, the Health Department can shut down the restaurant, as it did with Quickly Cafe.
