Inspections: Vanelli’s, Mist, Pizza Doctor, Gum Tree Cafe, Taylor Grocery

We didn’t have restaurant inspections available Friday since the health department’s website was down. But here we go, two days later than planned:

The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities.The facilities are graded from A to C.

“A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant.

The following Northeast Mississippi facilities were inspected between Aug. 10-16.

The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system, even if there are typos.
