Coffee at The Point, has a new look: Owners Ryan and Donovan Cobbins installed an 800 square-foot patio on the East 26th Avenue side of the restaurant last week. The addition was a good move for the cafe, which is on a busy Denver intersection in Five Points but partially hidden under an apartment complex; Ryan says he hopes the new space will encourage light-rail riders to stop and spend some time there, joining the neighbors who already hang out there.
"The Harlem of the West": A Page Turns on Welton Street, 2014

July 22, 2014
Amidst an influx of city funds from Welton Street Challenge, the real challenge unfolds.
The legendary, jazz-dappled street hasn't bounced back with the same energy as the similarly regaled roadways in other parts of central Denver. Historic context is especially important in this case.
So if you're willing to sit down and listen, Charleszine Terry Nelson, Special Collection and Community Resource Manager for the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, will weave you a tale of a time when Welton Street was the hippest strip between St. Louis and San Francisco.
Five Points get caffeinated with new coffee shop, 2014
February 23, 2014
Coffee at the Point is one of those businesses. It opened in 2010 and strives to put Five Points back on the map of hip and trendy places to be.
From coffee, to gourmet sandwiches, to wine tasting... Coffee on the Point echoes what city leaders hope will be a bright future for the area which has had its ups and downs. Once known as the "Harlem of the West" for its popular jazz clubs, Five Points had a bad bought with drugs and violence in the late 1950's.
Tracy Winchester, with the Five Points Business District, says over the decades, Five Points has transformed itself from a streetcar suburb to the heart of African American Denver.

Denver’s Five Points neighborhood hasn’t always had the best reputation. As one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, it is rich with Jazz culture and history, yet had a rising crime rate over the last decade. However, that has changed thanks to local businesses like Coffee at the Point. Owned and managed by brothers Ryan and Donovan Cobbins, Coffee at the Point is a great local establishment that brings in locals and visitors alike. With an extensive menu of coffee, beer and wine, sandwiches and soups, and gelato, it’s a great place to take the family or meet up with friends.

DENVER — At one time, the best place to hear live jazz between St. Louis and San Francisco was along Welton Street in Denver, where Duke and Ella were among the marquee legends stopping by to perform.
Dozens of night spots and clubs dotted Welton Street in the predominantly African-American neighborhood of Five Points for more than half the 20th century, making it a premier destination that some called the Harlem of the West.

Talented. Handsome. And a symphony soloist. At age 10.
Talk about having to live up to your early promise.
"It was surreal," Jeff "Maestro" Hughes said recently while recalling his solo violin performance with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
"I mean, I was submerged in the classical world; I was really working hard to accomplish this kind of thing, to make those auditions, to get myself in front of the symphony. But it was still unbelievable."

Coffee at The Point opened for business this week, with the full beverage, food and dessert menu available to Crossroads Theater patrons next door and anyone else who needs a kidney-punch of espresso made with Denver's own Novo coffee. Owners Ryan Cobbins, his wife Maggie and brother Donovan have morphed the defunct Blackberries at 710 East 26th Avenue into an amiable community sanctuary complete with icy gelato for warm summer nights, and hot soups and sandwiches for chilly winter days.

A new coffee and tea lounge will open its doors this fall in Five Points serving java, loose leaf teas, ice cream, pastries and breakfast burritos, with an emphasis on serving products made by local vendors. Coffee at the Point will take over the space formerly occupied by Blackberries, 710 East 26th Avenue.
Owner Ryan Cobbins says the new shop will differentiate itself from Blackberries -- also a coffee shop -- which closed its doors earlier this year. "It's not only for coffee drinkers, but there's also a piece of catering to those folks who don't drink coffee, and the location is large enough to have different special events," Cobbins says.
