Whitestone's Stork's Pastry Shop Vacant and Shuttered.

From the website:

"Stork's Bakery is closed indefinitely.
We will update you on our website, facebook & twitter when the bakery reopens..."

It had declined a bit since the sale year's ago, but was still iconic.

Not hopeful it will reopen.

  1. Outgoing message on the shop's machine thanks customers for their years of patronage and states that as of November 3rd, a decision has been made that Storks " is closed for good." Officially crying :(

    1. Too bad. Customer for over 30 years. Never found a better cinnamon jelly donut anywhere.....Thanks for the update.

        I'll miss the glorious Christmas stollen and baumkuchen and their out-freaking-rageous dark chocolate enrobed butter cookies. Super bummed. Nowhere else around here even comes close.

      2. I noticed the place was going down hill for a couple of years.

        I get back to whitestone once a year and the past 2 times the place was dark and dingy looking.

        the cheese Danish was still the best.
