The Tahoe House Bakery and Gourmet is one of the last true Mom and Pop operations around. In May of 1977 Peter and Helen Vogt moved the Lake Tahoe with their two little girls and opened the Tahoe House Restaurant. In the beginning, The Tahoe house served dinner only. We were open from 5 pm every day. Peter, who is a Swiss trained chef, oversaw the kitchen. Helen managed the dining room and was the hostess who greeted one and all at the front door.
Peter and Helen are originally from Switzerland and brought with them a love of European Style breads and pastries. In the early 1980’s the lack of availability of quality breads and cakes prompted Peter to begin baking. He experimented with many of his favorite recipes and developed a dessert cart full of cakes and freshly baked bread. Many of these creations are still available today.
