    The Salvation Army will operate the Waioli Tea Room & Bakery in Manoa when it reopens Nov. 11.

The historic Waioli Tea Room will reopen Monday, Nov. 18, not this Monday, as was previously announced.

The Salvation Army, which is renovating the popular restaurant operation and will be its operator upon reopening, announced today that unforseen circumstances had caused a delay. The circumstances were not detailed.

Longtime operator Brian Jahnke did not renew his 10-year lease as the operation was no longer profitable, he told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser in October.
