Welcome to Park 51 Cafe

Park 51 Cafe is a great experience for breakfast and for lunch.  The cuisine is southern with a Greek touch.

if that doesn't give anything away about the owner Fred Kanos.

Originally opened in 1988 by Mr. Sam Keretsis and his wife Helen, was sold to Effie Kanos and her son Fred a year later. Together they transformed the Cafe to what it is today. A great place for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week.  Most customers think of our restaurant as a home away from home.

We start breakfast at 6:00am Monday through Saturdays and 8:00am on Sunday. During the week breakfast is served till 11:30am  and the weekends till closing, while lunch starts at 11:00am.  Monday through Saturday we call it a day at 3:00pm and at 2:00pm on Sunday..

Our breakfast is recognized as one of the best in the area and our French Toast was voted for best in Charlotte in 2000, is a must try item along with our homemade pancakes and waffles or any combination with eggs.

We are proud to say that 99% of our items on our menu is made from scratch, using the freshest ingredients the market can offer.  We offer a large variety of home-cooked meals and vegetables but also salads, sandwiches and a few Greek dishes.

We also offer free delivery to the surrounding businesses during the week from 11:00 am - 2:30 pm and catering for any occasion. For catering, please contact Fred at (704) 543-6347.

We strive to make everyone happy and their experience pleasurable in our Cafe.  Most of our staff has been with us for a very long time and know our regulars by their first name.  That's why we like to say that we have " So many friends, so few seats".
