  1. Dear Jeff.
    I just wanted to inform you that the shut down in our store was unjustified and handled improperly by an inexperienced inspector, the droppings that appear to be in some cases Chocolate Sprinkles where not visible at all in our food handling areas, 4 drops located insight a cabinet bellow soda machine (not in food handling areas) and 6 in the back room away from food should not be a reason for being shut after being in business for 22 years with “0” violations and 99% ESP scores, those drops probably came from rodents that surround empty stores or other food places in the mall. All our products are kept frozen on coolers, dipping cabinets and walk-in freezers away from any contamination, Our Pest control company send a statement to the inspector and also show her all pest control invoices from 2 weeks before her visit, on top of that the pest control crew showed up while the inspector was there. We follow the highest cleanliness standards dictated by Haagen-Dazs franchise codes. After we clean the few drops or whatever it was we reopen next day normally after the inspector realized that everything was in perfect condition and the store spotless, The closing lasted only 3 hours. Please I really would like that the improper headline “Top D.D. Haagen-Dazs Miami Lakes” to be removed or that in some way you may rectify these incorrect statements.


  2. Just a quick note to mention that I saw the report on dirty dining this morning before leaving my home. I am a customer of the Haagen Dazs of Miami Lakes for at least 10 years and I have found the store to be always clean.
    My last visit was on father’s day that i went to pick a chocolate cake for my dad; and the lady was cleaning
    and had the yellow cones around the store so customer would not slip; i even mentioned that the place was always
    very well kept; and she replied that the owner was remind
    them constantly to have it spotless. Maybe a 2nd chance should be given to management to respond to the report? tks
