lake tahoe's favorite bagel shop...
Exciting news, Dragonfly Bagel Co opened in their new location August 2 inside of Black Bear Lodge! The bagel shop will be open for public and guests of the lodge Thursday through Sunday from 7:30 AM until sold out.
Dragonfly Bagels aren't your average bagel. Caitlin Parker hand-makes each bagel - as in no mixer people! Now that's a labor of love.
"Like a New York bagel, we boil them, but instead of putting the ingredients in the dough, we put it on top, so they look crazy and super fun," said Parker. "They tend to be a little lighter, a little airier, because during our boiling process they also steam up quite a bit."
Currently Dragonfly serves nine flavors of bagels: plain, cinnamon sugar, tomato herb, everything, spicy garlic herb, cheddar, tomato cheddar, onion cheddar and jalapeño cheddar. Customers can top them with cream cheese, goat cheese, homemade hummus, pesto, Nutella or jam.
The menu also features out-of-the-box sandwiches like the Cheez-It Bagel — made with cream cheese or goat cheese, pulverized Cheez-Its, tomato and a choice of bacon or avocado.
