Coral Pratillo of Fish Tale Grill displays three Best of Cape Coral plaques. Fish Tale by Merrick Seafood won Best Restaurant and Best Seafood Restaurant and Merrick Seafood won Best Seafood Market in the Best of Cape Coral 2016 sponsored by the Cape Coral Breeze.

More than 100 businesses and professionals were recognized Wednesday as the Cape Coral Breeze held its annual “Best of Cape Coral” awards luncheon at the Cape Coral Yacht Club.

Attendees were treated to a buffet catered by Bubba’s Roadhouse & Saloon and custom cupcakes by LadyCakes Bakery before being presented with the winners plaques for 2016.

Winners are determined through a readers poll that gives the public the opportunity to cast a ballot for the businesses, professionals and service providers they deem the best in their respective category.

“As strong supporters of the local business community, it gives us great pleasure to sponsor the ‘Best of Cape Coral’ recognitions each year,” said Breeze Publisher Scott Blonde said. “Not only does it allow us the opportunity to invite the public to recognize those businesses that are very good at what they do, it gives us an opportunity to say thank you to both longtime and new establishments that have earned a reputation for excellence.”

The 2016 Best of Cape Coral 2016 winners are:
