Helen's Staff Relief Fund

The Helen's staff is a tight knit family of employees and regulars. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, on Sunday March 15th we had to close our doors in an effort to keep our community safe. Because of this, we had to lay off almost our entire staff, front and back of house.

All proceeds will go directly to our staff that was let go. We have staff members who do not qualify for unemployment for a variety of reasons- these folks are our priority for relief support.

Our plan of offering a limited delivery and take out menu is so we can keep the lights on and be here when this pandemic subsides. We have a skeleton crew in place to take care of those folks ordering meals with us at this time. 

If you've ever grabbed a seat at the bar, ordered pancakes at brunch, or enjoyed a candlelit dinner with us, you know how special Helen's is. Our team pours their heart into each dish you enjoy and cocktail you sip. We look forward to when we can all meet at the copper bar again, on the other side of this crisis.
