This is it: Best bagel on the Island!

I miss my east coast bagels. I still remember when my dad brought home a bakers dozen of H&H bagels and I finished them off in a few days. Heaven on Earth. Chewy but soft. I tend to avoid bagels when I'm at home (although I do like Lox of Bagels on Sand Island), but I wanted to pick up bagels for my office the other day. So I decided to stop off at This is It in Kaka'ako...for the best bagels on the island. Here's the baskets of fresh bagels. You can see all the donuts in the back! They also have a separate case with pastries and scones. I got a dozen mini bagels and some cream cheese for my office. And also picked up a sandwich for lunch. Wasn't sure how I was spending $7 or 8 on a bagel sandwich, but it was SO worth it. The bagel was delish and the perfect base for my ham & cheese sandwich.
And also a scone for the road...yum...

Sorry but this native New Yorker/transplant to Oahu begs to differ. There is NOT a real bagel here. H&H is missed. So is Nussbaum & Wu on 113th and B'way. It can't be THAT hard to make a proper bagel. The ones in Hawaii are all too bready for my taste. Ciao. bob at

Thanks for your comment, Bob! I'll have to try Nussbaum & Wu the next time I'm back east. We'll just have to keep looking for more bagel shops in Hawaii...

I really like that place, even if it't not a real bagel place, as bob says.
I especially want it right now because I'm on a ridiculous carb free diet.
BLAH.
