Stork’s Wins Best in Three… Again!

Best of 2021

Congratulations to STORK’s, who, for the third time in three years, took home three awards in SFGN’s Best of 2021 issue. They were awarded the Best Coffeeshop award, the Best Dessert award, as well as the Best Barista award. It is quite good to be nominated and win these categories once, but to be nominated and win three years in a row, is an amazing honor that the staff at STORK’s would like to thank the entire community.

If SFGN had a Best Customers category, the winners would be STORK’s customers. Thank you again for your continued patronage and votes.

The following are excerpts from SFGN:

Best Dessert/Best Coffeeshop: Stork’s

There’s an old saying, “Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.” If that’s true, we’ll all be lined up at Stork’s chosen best dessert for the eighth year in a row. Whether it’s an elegant cake, a slice of pie, or a chewy cookie, you can’t go wrong at Storks.  

Stork’s has been a staple in the community since opening in 1997. Like most businesses though, they faced challenges last year due to shutdowns and restrictions. But unlike some places, they were able to remain open, which allowed them to keep all of their staff employed. 

“We offer so much more than a coffee shop, including homemade cakes, pies, pastries and cookies; soups, salads and sandwiches, full breakfast menu, breakfast sandwiches pastries; delicious prepared foods, and professional catering,” said Pasquale Rizzo, catering manager.  

Their individual-sized tarts are especially popular. Check out the Fresh Fruit Tarts, the award-winning Lemon White Chocolate Mousse Tarts, and their Red Velvet Oreo Cheesecake Tart. 

“All this, and we’re open from early morning to midnight every day of the week,” he said.

One of their barista’s took the top prize for Best Barista this year as well.  

Best Barista: Harlie D. at Storks

For the first time ever, Harlie at Stork’s Bakery has won Best Barista.

Stork’s has been in Wilton Manors since 1997 and is a favorite to locals. Harlie has been with Stork’s for four years.

“When she’s not giving excellent service to our customers, she is entertaining them with her beautiful singing voice, as she sings along to whatever music is playing through the sound system,” said Pasquale Rizzo, Catering Manager.

According to Rizzo, Harlie said she just always tries to “keep a smile,” when it comes to interacting with customers.

“She always makes an effort to provide personal and thorough customer service,” Rizzo said.  In fact, she makes a point to address all of our regular customers by name.”

    I couldn’t find a place to provide feedback to your restaurant customer service so decided to send this. Today I had one of the the worse experiences at your place. I decided to treat myself on my birthday to a bagel and lox ande stopped by for breakfast. I sat outside and waited a while till I decided to inquire about my order. Apparently they gave my order to someone else. No apologies from anyone. I had to wait again for them to prepare my order (this time to go) to realize after I got home the gave me the wrong bagel with almost no lox and a sloppy looking presentation…for almost $12!! I never file any complaints but this is completely unacceptable. I’ve been coming yo your place for many years. Something similar happened before but not as bad. Now I know I won’t be back. When Starbucks opened across the street I decided I would never go there and instead go yo places like yours. I’ve changed my mind and mentioned this to everyone asking. Thank you

      Good Morning Dr. Romer,
      I’m sorry for the late response. I’m just know seeing your message. I truly apologize for the experience you had here the other morning. I have talked to my staff on shift that day about the situation and I can’t go back and change what happened but I can assure you it won’t happen again. I would love if you would give us another chance. Breakfast or lunch is on me. We appreciate you reaching out and hope to see you again.
