Helliemae's doesn't have a retail store - our location is our production kitchen. We open it up for caramel hours the third Thursday of every month from 4-6pm at:
7711 W 6th Ave Ste L
Lakewood CO 80214
Upcoming caramel hours: 12/19. Come taste caramels, see the factory, and do some shopping! Just two notes:
1. Caramel hours are for grown-ups - the kitchen can be dangerous for little folk.
2. It's tricky to find us the first time. And well-policed: take the 35 MPH limit on the frontage road seriously.
Getting to Helliemae's from downtown Denver:
Take 6th Ave West to Wadsworth North exit.
Immediately zoom all the way left on Wadsworth to take a left on the westbound frontage road. You won't be able to b/c of traffic, so go up and flip an U, then turn west onto the frontage road.
Right away, you'll see a Public Storage on your right. The IMMEDIATE next driveway is for the "West 6th Ave Business Park" (you won't be able to see the sign) - a group of light industrial buildings. That's me. I'm at the back (north) of the lot, next to "Lifestyles Catering" (they have a banner).
What if I miss the driveway?
The first street that will help you is Carr: stay on frontage road to stop sign, then immediate next street is Carr. Turn right/north, go to W 10th Ave, turn right/east, go to Wadsworth, turn right/south and try again.
Do NOT turn on a street before Carr. NONE of them go through. I didn't believe Google Maps and tested it out. The Google, it was right.
Now, remember. This is a tiny factory, not a retail storefront. We host caramel hours the third Thursday of every month, but at other times, we may not be here, or we may be making delicious treats and unavailable. Want to come by? Book a time with us at email@example.com. Thanks!
