We Practice Food Safety!

At St. Anthony’s Dining Room, practicing food safety is of the utmost importance to us. In order to guarantee that our guests are receiving the highest quality meals, we make sure that all of our food is handled properly. Our kitchen and warehouse staff are trained to safely handle and store food. We also hold the AIB Food Safety Designation and are routinely inspected by the USDA and State and County Public Health Inspectors.

If you have any questions please call us at (415) 241-2600.
