Restaurant acknowledges roach infestation

MILL VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - November 1, 2012

Cafe del Soul in Marin County has posted a sign near its front door acknowledging that it's infested with German cockroaches.

The organic restaurant has also reported itself to the county environmental health services department and will be closed on Wednesday so a pest control company can go to work.

Manager Sandro De Oliveira told a local newspaper that the cafe's owner wanted to be honest with customers. The newspaper reports that the restaurant also wanted to put pressure on the building owner to take action against the pests.

The cafe is in a strip mall that includes other tenants.

County officials say they will send an inspector.
