Post-beach went to Agnes' Bake Shop to try their malasadas. To their credit, they make every order fresh so you get them hot from the ftyer. They are GREAT. They put a small hole in the center so they cook very thoroughly and I think they just offer with plain sugar but anyway they were delicious. All the other baked... More

They have the best malassadas. It's slightly crispy and chewy. You do have to wait unless you call in your order. I just wished they were opened later so that we can order them for dessert , nice and hot. This is now my favorite pastry , except they have a coconut pastry (forgot name) that is awesome.

When going to Lanikai beach we always stopped here for malasadas and coffee. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and you get a homely feel in the bake shop.

I often get a craving for something sweet and today I decided to stop at Agnes' for treat. I had a Morning Glory and it was good, but not something that screamed 'to run through hot lava' for another one. In the past, I've had the bread pudding, maple macadamia nut long john, and other sweets. I suggest you give... More

I thought I had tried all of the best malassadas on the island: Leonard's & Champions. Then I heard about Agnes Portguese Bake Shop. I made a decision to make the almost hour long the long bus ride from Honolulu to see what it was all about. The are not like the perfectly shaped golden orbs of the previously named... More

Don't hesitate. If you're in Kailua on Oahu you MUST stop at Agnes' Portuguese Bakery and have them make you a fresh batch of malasadas. You can have your Kristy Kremes, bignets in New Orleans, or whatever but there's nothing like a fresh hot malasada from Agnes'. while you're there get any of theor baked goods and fresh breads. You... More

I could kick myself for not visiting sooner! My husband and I had to travel to the other side of the island so we hopped in to this little gem and ordered some of the malasadas for a quick & easy breakfast. Heaven in the form of a perfectly fried sugary puff of dough that melts in your mouth is... More

First of all, I highly recommend that you map out the location before you head out. We had a little trouble finding the place, but eventually succeeded. It is located in Kailua one block west of Oneawa Street at the intersection of Kihapai and Hoolai Streets (southeast corner of the intersection). When you arrive, ask for at least two more... More

The malasadas here are great. They have a nice chewy consistency to them, and they are also fresh and made to order. I preferred them to Leonards in Honolulu.
