This week Food for Thought is brewing up a long list of Top and Low Performers. And it's time to wake up and smell the coffee, because that's what our featured Top Performers specializes in. It's time to spill the beans in this edition of Food for Thought.
A perfect score is "grounds" for a Top Performing certificate. And that's just the case at Peet's coffee and Tea inside Market Street at 3405 50th Street. "Good value, quality food, quality service," says Food Service Manager Randy Steward. He says it's a blending of strict guidelines and unique products that helps them please customers, and they always want to do it in a clean and safe environment. "We use constant training through out employees, good supervision, food safety certification courses and ongoing inspections," says Steward.
Also on the Top Performing list is Daybreak Coffee Roasters at 4406 19th Street. No critical violations makes them a Top Performer. Then it's on to Rise N Shine Donuts at 8001 Quaker, where inspectors also found a perfect score. And finally, another Top Performer under the Market Street roof, the retail food also gets a perfect score.
This week there are two Low Performers beginning with the Rooftop Cafe' at 3300 82nd Street. Inspectors found 4 critical violations including an employee drinking from an unapproved container.
The manager at Rooftop Cafe told us the inspection took place on his day off, and that all critical violations were corrected on site and they are in good shape. The report also says all critical violations were corrected.
Our second Low Performer is Texas Burritos at 2219 50th Street. Inspectors found 5 critical violations including improper cooling of food products.
The manager at Texas Burritos told us all critical violations have been corrected, the report states that as well.
