Bread on the Big Island?

We're heading to Kona HI next week. Anyone know where I can buy good (you know what I mean) bread there? I won't have room in my luggage to take any!

They have wonderful sweet hawaiian breads - guava, etc., plus other baked goods. It's a great place for lunch, they have a little restaurant there, and there are windows in the buildings that let you see the bakers, etc. at work behind the scenes. I highly recommend it!

I'll make a note of that. Is in Kona? Now I need a place for crusty hearth bread. :)
