After more than two decades of serving customers in Five Points, the popular Welton Street Café is in danger of closing.

Restaurant co-owner Fathima Dickerson said issues with the restaurant’s building are threatening to shut down this community gathering place.

Dickerson said their biggest issue is their HVAC system not functioning properly.

On a hot day, the temperature inside of the kitchen can reach over 100 degrees making it too hot to cook and impossible to remain open.
