Description:  Helliemae's makes intense, complex confections in small batches. I started Helliemae's in late 2010 because I couldn't find the caramels I love on the shelves: super dark, almost bitter caramels with plenty of flaky, crunchy sea salt. Handcrafted postpunk DIY + Hell-on-wheels flavors = Helliemae's. From the original Classic Salt Caramels, Helliemae's products have grown to five year-round caramels and six limited-edition seasonal caramels, along with three caramel sauces and occasional other treats like banana pudding with salted caramel sauce, tart maraschino cherries, and a pecan praline crunch. All Helliemae's products are made by hand, and we choose the best ingredients. We select for flavor first, and we try to source local and organic where we can.

Linger’s vibrant menu reflects a broad farm-to-street sensibility with a spin on traditional ethnic eats. Design elements can be described as a purposeful contradiction featuring reclaimed boxcar floors, a brick ellipse, a Lite Brite bar top and infinity windows with incredible views into downtown Denver. The food, the service, the story combine to extract a feeling. Linger is like a mixtape, and we hope it connects. We’re not trying to reinvent food -- it’s simpler than that. We hope to elicit a feeling – like you get when you hear your favorite song. Linger now offers lunch! Tuesday - Friday 11:30 am till 2:30 pm.
