Bailee Mae’s is a new business located in historic downtown Helena, Arkansas next to the Mississippi River Park and Levee. Bailee Mae's was established to fill a niche for a specialty coffee shop and as a place to meet friends for a glass of wine, a draft beer and fresh food offerings in the renovated historic Lewis Supply Building which turns 100 years old in 2016.
Grab your favorite coffee in the morning and enjoy the history of downtown Helena, the Civil War sites, the music, the people, the river, canoeing, biking and come back and unwind in the afternoon or evening with a glass of wine or a craft beer with a special something to eat.
Much like the restoration of the Lewis Supply Building, (go to lewissupplybldg.com) Bailee Mae's is doing her part to preserve the Delta's environment. Coffee, wine beer and the food is served on or in compostable cups, glasses, plates and utensils to reduce the amount of trash and litter and by offering local produce when available.
For the serious coffee lover Bailee Mae's serves West Rock Coffee which is roasted and delivered fresh every week from Little Rock, Arkansas. West Rock Coffee goes beyond the ordinary in "Fair Trade" partnering with the people that grow the coffee in Africa to providing the outstanding fresh roasted coffee for us to serve to you.

The Story of Bailee Mae's
As the owners of Bailee Mae's we have always wanted a place in Helena to get a good coffee and have a glass of wine with our Helena friends in a relaxing atmosphere. After seventeen years of waiting we decided that it was time to create such a place for Helena. Now we have somewhere to go for a coffee and a glass of wine, come join us.
We are asked about the name Bailee Mae's. It comes from the time we lived in Helena with our five children. Our daughter Bailee was nick named "Bailee Mae" by her four brothers, not to her liking. Over the years she grew to take the name and kidding with some pride with the fond memories of her time in Helena. It seemed a fitting Helena name and one that Bailee could have the last laugh on her brothers.
