taken from my travel blog :
The choice for today was The Dragonfly Cafe and Bakery in Historic Taos . As I approached the establishment I was welcomed by the sounds of rolling water from the 2 fountains in the outside patio , the crunch of small stones under my feet and a greeting from the proprietor , who I must add is as tall or a bit taller than I.
I was asked if I wanted to dine IN or Out. I chose in ,as the sun had taking it's toll on my poor unprotected head.After perusing the menu with many choices of all organic meals like spinach salad with roasted pinons (pine nuts ) . And a few heartier choices I decided upon the roasted vegetable sandwich with a side green salad. The cost ? $11.00 with the iced tea and lovely lemon tart the check was just under $20.
I learned quite a bit about the Dragonfly's commitment to the environment ,just by flipping over the menu.
On the back they talk about :The cheese they use for everything is RGB free and all the waste from the Est. is sent off to compost to a local farmer. DragonFly is also very conscious of paper and plastic waste and for the most part chooses against it.The inside dining area is tastefully colorful and the outside patio is nicely lighted and decorated in a welcoming garden motif.
An added bonus ALL of the offerings on the dessert cart are hand crafted and home made by the proprietor.
Dragonfly Cafe is located on Paseo del Pueblo Sur or 68 right next to the Taos US Post Office, and yes you can park there.
