Awesome malasadas

Been wanting to try malasadas from Leonard's Bakery for some time, but never had the opportunity on our past trips to Oahu. On our last trip, we found out they operate a truck at the Waikele Shopping Center. Since we were on our way to North Shore, we decided to take a short detour to try their... read more

Having wanted to visit the Leonard's Bakery this was the next best thing to try a famous Malasada. They were nice and served warm. Very sweet but yummy.

It's been a while since I've been to Leonard's because we live on the mainland but as soon as I got back on Oahu I was craving a malasada (Portuguese doughnut)! I was blown away at the choices they have now. Back in the day it was only sugar covered, not they have cinnamon and sugar, custard filled, chocolate filled,... More

Evelyn the woman taking the orders is extremely rude. I'm standing here shaking my head. Leonards bakery is luck they don't have competition in the malasadas game because with service like that provided by Evelyn they would be out of business.

Who doesn't love cinnamon sugar and fried dough. Yummy when warm. Just enough sweetness. Wish we had stopped here sooner instead of our last day.

It seems like every time I come to Waikele I always find myself in front of Leonard's. Got a half dozen original and half dozen Dobash (chocolate filled) this trip. My family loves them!! Hot food, quick service.

This was a first for us on our trip to Oahu and we did go to the food truck in Waikele. How the malasadas could be any better any where else on earth is a mystery to me. They were fresh, hot and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. We did try the haupia filled but thought... More

Stopped in on our way to the airport. It was great. Short wait for the cinnamon and regular but it was worth it. Served very hot and fresh. Easy access and quick service. Better experience than I had at the restaurant in Honolulu.

If you are looking for hot and fresh malasadas and you are on the Leeward side of the island of Oahu - then head over to the Leonards truck in Waikele. The malasadas are awesome! The line can be long at times but well worth the wait! Great instead of doughnuts for an out of town guest - let them... More
