“Family is Everything”

Flynn & Mona Dickerson moved to Colorado in the 1970s from the Virgin Islands, and aspired to bring a taste of home to the U.S. For over 35 years, the Dickerson family has worked hard to serve island-inspired Southern dishes and has been a strong pillar in the community. 

Recently celebrating 20 years of business, Welton Street Cafe was opened at its current location in 1999, and continues to be a soul food staple in the Five Points Community. It has withstood the test of time and stands as the longest-running and last-of-its-kind restaurant in the area.

Three out of the nine children in the Dickerson family, twins Fathima & Fathim and Cenya, now run the restaurant with their parents’ support. As Flynn says, “Family is Everything.” 

Welton Street Cafe is black history in Denver. It is not only a place to get finger-licking, melt-in-your-mouth comfort food, but a gathering place where people from all backgrounds can feel welcome.
