Compliance issues delay sale of drinks at Hortenciá’s Café

By Samantha Avila


Hortenciá’s Café is delaying the sale of beer and wine due to the maintenance update that needs to take effect before the service is available this semester, Sodexo General Manager Anthony “Tony” Allen said.

“We have the license and everything,” Allen said. “We just need to wait for the city to come and re-inspect Hortenciá’s before we start selling alcohol.”

According to the City of San Antonio’s Department of Services, before alcohol can be served, the café needs to be numbered with the maximum number of occupancy, the facility needs labeling, and other minor things.

“I can serve alcohol right now if I wanted to,” Allen said. “But I’m not going to risk anything. I’d rather have it all straightened out first.”
