  • Bread Desert?

    One discovery yesterday was the Great Harvest Bread Co., a franchise bakery operation that is definitely not your typical local balloon bread factory. Honolulu tends to be a bread desert, devoid of good bread. Great Harvest offers great bread, interesting selection. We have enjoyed Great Harvest stores on the mainland, but didn't know about this local store. It's in a hidden and somewhat difficult to locate spot across the street from Kahala Mall, next to Eric Ako's veterinary clinic and Petland (which explains how we "discovered" it while on a cat-related shopping trip). They had a whole grain 2-for-1 special going on this week.
    I don't know if one could say Hilo is a bread desert, what with O'Keefe & Sons and various sweetbread producers. And what does he mean by "balloon bread factory?"
