It was called Holy’s Bakery — and no one seemed to have a street address for it.
We knew it was in Kapaau on the Kohala Coast, about 60 miles from downtown Kona. We knew you could buy the frozen pies at the local KTA Superstore. But we knew the bakery makes more than just apple pies. (In fact, we got a request to bring back a fresh loaf of cinnamon bread.)
So I Googled the bakery and found a phone number.
“Hi, what time are you open tomorrow?” I asked the friendly woman who answered the phone.
“What time you want to come?”
“Well, we wanted to get there as early as possible.”
“OK, just come by and toot your horn. I live next door. I come out.”
And that was it.
So we set out at 7 a.m. on Saturday to see the bakery we had heard so much about.
