Lox of Bagels on the move
There be lots of bagels at Lox of Bagels, now open at a new Dillingham location. Among bagel selections are sun-dried tomato, cheese and spinach flavors. You'll also find the classic plain New York-style bagel, cinnamon raisin, and poppyseed among the 20-plus varieties available.
Lox of Bagels has opened a new location at 1111 Dillingham Boulevard, at Kokea Street, bringing the Sand Island business closer to central Honolulu.
The bakery operation will also be moving over, scheduled to become fully operational in a month, before closing the Sand Island kitchen later this summer.
The new location will offer Lox of Bagels 20-plus varieties of New York-style bagels, plus edibles such as bagel sandwiches, bagel dogs and specialty Bagel Puffs, bagel dough stuffed with fillings and baked. Some of the classic Bagel Puff combos are a cinnamon raisin puff with plain cream cheese; sesame seed puff filled with azuki bean paste; or a plain bagel filled with peanut butter and cream cheese.
According to company president Terumi Drake, among favorite sandwiches are the chicken salad bagel sandwich ($6.75) with the works: lettuce, tomato, sprouts, onions, mayo and mustard, as well as the namesake Manhattan Delight ($9) combo of lox and cream cheese.
Expansion plans don’t stop there. Another Kapiolani location is expected to open in July, with a new café concept, and will be dubbed Café Grace by Lox of Bagels.
Lox of Bagels is at 1111 Dillingham Boulevard, Suite E6. Hours are 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, and 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Call 808.200.7259.
