Welton Street Cafe

Five Points has long been the focal point of African-American culture and community in Denver, with jazz and supper clubs and a variety of storefront restaurants offering homestyle cooking. The one with the most staying power is the Welton Street Cafe, where the Dickerson family has kept the catfish, fried chicken, smothered pork chops and other soul-food specialties coming for 22 years. It’s planning a move one block north in 2022, but no matter where the food is being served, leave room for some peach cobbler or a slice of sweet-potato pie.
