Best sweet bread on the island

Old fashioned Portugee bakery--don't go looking for fancy pastries! Doughnuts, cookies...the basics. BUT, Agnes' sweetbread is the best on the island. Makes great French toast.

Nice little store with friendly staff. Ordered malasadas and came back 15 minutes later for the fresh treat. They were average. Not as good as Leonard's in Honolulu. Other things were OK too. Most likely won't be back to this bakery but you don't need to avoid it by any means.

We read the reviews for the Malasadas and had to try them. They were so good that we went back two more times during our stay to get some. As others have mentioned they are made to order so call ahead if you do not want to wait 10-15 minutes. We also tried cookies which were good, muffins that were... More

The Portuguese pastry is wonderful. I can't think of any v pastry to compare it with. Decadent and fast, welcoming and friendly service. I did order in advance. Delicious!

That's right. You can call ahead and Agnes will have your hot Portuguese doughnuts bagged and ready for you when you arrive. It's a great way to start your morning.

Malasadas are a wonderful Portuguese creation where you take a yeast dough, deep fry it, and then roll it in sugar. They are made to order, so be ready to wait at least 10 minutes--or call ahead if you prefer. While Leonard's is more famous, if you are on this side of the island, Agnes is great! Sure, they don't... More

Go here to get the best malasadas on the Island. Ask for them to be warmed up. Deliciousness in a bite!

I have enjoyed many a tasty treat over the past few months here. My favorite is the Maple Bar with Macadamia Nuts. Their malasadas are also excellent, and judging by the folks I see there, they do a nice business with lots of regulars. They have a generous area for eating/drinking coffee there, but I generally take mine to go.... More
