Do yourself a favor and pick up this treat!

Leonard's is THE place to get delicious malasadas. You can't go wrong with any of the flavors, but the original is a must. Also, there is a TON of filling in the custard malasada, so try out one regular and one with filling for extra dipping.

Since it's on the way home from work, I stop here frequently to grab a box of hot tasty malasadas. Waikele Shopping Center is about a 30-40 min drive from Waikiki. But there's a Leonard's Bakery in Kapahulu, which is right outside of Waikiki and they have more offerings than the wagons. The malasadas come plain with white sugar or... More

It's been 7 years since the last malasadas. This wagon is in the same place. Taste the best warm. Pretty quick as there was no line when we got there around 630p on a Tuesday. Order a couple of each. Brought some to the family. For its consistency over all the years five star!!

Leonards' Malasadas are sinfully, decadent, delicious, and it is hard to not stop and purchase one....no two of them while in the area. A Leonards truck should be at the Airport for all tourists to try them. I guarantee they would purchase more before leaving the Isaland of Oahu!

If you can't go into town, stop in Waikele for Malasadas. They're just as good and the line tends to be shorter. A favorite filling is the lilikoi and chocolate.

These Malasada's are well worth the trip across the road from Waikele Premium outlet. I had the cinnamon and sugar and they were delicious. Wish i had have brought some back, the best donuts ever!!

A friend took us here since we were away from the main Leonard's and it was tasty. I did try a sugar, cinnamon sugar, and chocolate one. They are so good, but the chocolate was my least favorite--the filling tasted like chocolate pudding and I was kind of expecting something more creamy or frosting-like. Definitely a must try though!

Living in Waipahu and pasting this wagon to and from work there is always a line waiting to pick up malasda,s regulars or filled with chocolate or custard so it must be good. Please remember to be patience with the service when waiting in line

Stopped at this Leonard's Food truck for the first time (7th visit to Hawaii). Family and friends couldn't believe I hadn't stopped at Leonard's for a malasdas. I tried a sugar malasdas. It was good, but not as good as I expected based on the hype of others. The staff was friendly, the malasda was served hot and the price... More

I love the regular malasadas, but the custard-filled are the best! The malasadas are freshly made while you wait and you are guaranteed a hot, fresh, delicious dessert. Love the convenience of having this Leonard's truck in the shopping center that I frequently visit.
