Park 51 Verrado

Industry Observer

Park 51 frontageVerrado, nestled at the base of the White Tank Mountains 25 miles west of Phoenix, boasts a culture reminiscent of home town USA.  An Informal lifestyle, likeable neighbors, and a very friendly environment sets it apart from other communities in the valley.  All of the homes in Verradoare no more than a stone's throw from a beautiful park.  Fifty parks to be exact, plan fully designed for maximum enjoyment and strategically placed throughout the community. 

A new place just opened on Verrado's downtown Main Street.  It's a coffee shop called "Park 51" to take on the status of the 51st park in Verrado.   Previously called Mokarabia Coffee Shop,  Park 51, offers a new look and a new feel.  The lounge and seating area has increased in size offering twice the space for customers to sit around, read, enjoy a latte, talk with neighbors, surf the net using the free wireless system or just pass the time.  A full range of beverage selections, both hot and cold meals, along with retail items are offered with prices reduced substantially (by 25%) from that of the previous coffee shop.  The manager, Christina Dubas, said that further conveniences for the customers are coming shortly such as the ability to order ahead by email, texting or their website which is under development.  An expanded menu selection is also in the process of being pulled together.   

Whether you live in Verrado, passing through Buckeye, Arizona or curious about why this can be a perfect place to relax, stop by and check it out.  As a  real estate professional, I find this to be the ideal place to meet my fellow realtors, compare notes and social network with people I love being around.

Hi Ken, I came over to say hi and I noticed the way you inset you photos in the post and wondered if you would like some help. I was going to add a link to a post that helps with this but I don't put links in a comment without being invited to do so. Just let me know if you would like some help.

This was a a very nicely written post and a great localism post Ken.

Today was my first time visiting the coffee shop.  I love Verrado as it reminds me of the midwest in look as well as in the folks who live there.  It's very relaxing to be in the enviorment and be able to relax, folks there are the cream of the crop... NOT like Buckeye at Watson at all!


Great place to work, relax, network for business or meet the girls (or guys).

Hi Suzi:

Thanks for your comments on Park 51.  I too live in Verrado and have seen it grow over the course of the last 5 years since my wife and I moved here from Colorado.  A lot happens at Park 51.  Show up on a Monday at 9:00 AM and you can join a Mahjong game.  You can also sign up for the club on Verrado.net.  A card group gets together once a week to play "hand and foot"  , a form of Canasta.  I find it to be a great place to meet friends and neighbors and an occasional client to do business.  I agree with you, it's a great place.  Welcome to Verrado.
