SAN ANTONIO – A café on the city’s Northwest Side was ordered to go through a re-inspection after pesticides were found being stored on top of sodas.

Café Rosa, located in the 1300 block of Gardina Street was also cited because it was unclear who was in charge when a city health official stopped by for the inspection.

The café was given a score of 75.

Due to the high number of violations and high level of health concern, the re-inspection was conducted the following day.

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District's scoring of food establishments is based on a 100-point demerit system.

The inspection reports, which establishments are required to post in public view, feature a number score at the top and bottom of the front page. A separate placard with the number score and a letter grade (example: 100/A) is also available upon request from the food establishment. Posting the placard is voluntary.
