What do you think, GFCI needed at this counter-like shelf within the kitchen pantry?

That would not fit my definition of "countertop", thus that would not be 'serving the countertop', meaning no GFCI required.

Does not, however, mean it is not a 'good idea' and worth recommending, just means that the client will pay for their own increased level of protection if they so chose to install a GFCI there, that's all.

Nope, not a countertop. It appears closer to resembling a wet-bar (not really) than a countertop.
