Bagels in Honolulu?

Anyplace in Honolulu to buy good bagels? Long ago I used to get the ones from Hawaiian Bagel Factory in Kakaako, but that place is long gone. Any suggestions?

  1. Oh, I know of what you speak and crave! In 1985 I used to work at coffee company on Queen St. a block or so away from Hawaiian Bagel. In fact, we'd have to walk there to get a bag or so of bagel for our daily customer needs. Wonderful place and you could also get sandwiches there and other things.

    I cant think of another comparable place right now :-( Safeway in Kaneohe has some good bagels but not like HBC.

    1. There is a bagel shop on Sand Island Access Rd. a couple of doors from the Mexican rest., but they don't boil before baking, so they are only OK. Donut-shaped bread, really.

      1. there's a place called "this and that" cafe, or something like that, near kakaa'ko (its near the fisher), on cooke or around there.

        also a downtown lunch location.
