Park 51 Café is located in Pineville, North Carolina and has been a local favorite for breakfast and lunch since it was originally opened in 1988 by Sam and Helen Keretsis.
In November 2013, after relocating to South Carolina from New Jersey, Richie and Patty Iadanza purchased Park 51 Café from Fred Kanos, who had owned the café since 1989. The Iadanza’s were long-time business owners in New Jersey with many different business ventures including an Italian Restaurant that has been in business for over 70 years and they still own it today. They were looking for a similar family-style location and found that Park 51 Café was a great fit.
Park 51 Café prides itself in the fact that they make 99% of the items on their menu from scratch with recipes perfected over the years. Richie’s Italian heritage and Patty’s English heritage have been incorporated into the menu to offer many choices for breakfast and lunch while keeping the Park 51 Café favorites established by the previous owners. The menu offers a variety of Italian, Greek, English, Southern, and American classics for both breakfast and lunch.
Come in, relax, have a cup of coffee, enjoy something to eat, talk and become a part of the Park 51 Café family.
So many family and friends, so few seats!
