Dragonfly spreads its wings with second location posted on 08/01/2018

Rori Klingbeil opened her first establishment, the Dragonfly Café and Bakery in Welches, five years ago and credits her mother with starting her baking. Klingbeil noted it was her mother’s dream to open a bakery with her but that she passed away before the café was opened.

Now, her mother’s dream has inspired her to go forward with now her second undertaking in the Welches community, the Dragonfly Bakery, located in the space formerly occupied by the Hazelnut House Bakery at 24525 E. Welches Road.

“The restaurant runs well because of the love … I love this mountain,” Klingbeil said, adding that she hopes to continue to grow and expand her business, including the possibility of opening an additional ice cream store. “One (business) is a lot to handle but the community needs and wants it.”

The Dragonfly Bakery opened on July 21 to positive local response and quickly sold out of all baked goods on their first day.

Klingbeil’s master baker Belinda Torres produces a wide variety of baked goods including red velvet bars, bear claws, coffee cake, cinnamon rolls, seasonal berry tarts and scones as well as fresh breads. The bakery will offer a rotating array of pies and gourmet five-layer cakes to order. Prices for baked goods range from $2 to $35.

The menu also includes a small array of gluten-free baked goods and Klingbeil plans to increase the line of options as the bakery grows.

She also intends to expand menu offerings to include soup and fresh bread in the upcoming months.

Beverage options include Mt. Hood Roasters coffee, fruit juices and chocolate milk.

The cozy space offers 14 seats in the bakery and additional outside seating. It will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Dragonfly Bakery can be contacted by phone at 503-622-2400 or online at www.dragonflymounthood.com.
