Hot Malasadas are a must! These are donuts without holes, original ones are covered with cinnamon sugar. It is well worth standing in line and waiting for these bites of heaven. They ONLY serve them hot.

They're doughnuts!? I enjoyed this place, we got a case of assorted malasadas. It's got a "been here since the 50's feel to it" which was cool. The malasadas were definitely good but I'm not sure that I would rate this place as one of the best in Honolulu. Doughnuts taste good. They're supposed to taste good, they're pure fat... More

We travel to Oahu regularly and finally made it to Leonard's! We will be going back to that great little local place. It is truly a real bakery, not just a corner with donuts at Target. We love trying the locals restaurants and special places. The malasadas were served warm and fresh. We also order a couple blueberry squares, both... More

We tried Leonard's after it was recommended to us by many of the locals for its malasadas. These tiny puffy crunchy hot and sweet portugese doughnuts were a serious slice of heaven and we absolutely loved them but as Leonard's was too far a walk from our hotel (well away from the main strip and on quite a busy road)...

Well worth the trip off Waikiki Beach! Although Leonard's is a small place, it definitely has a following for its Portuguese malasadas. My husband & I went twice during our 10-day Hawaii trip...pretty incredible! Leonard's often has lines out the door, so go early, especially on weekends. There are a few benches outside to sit & eat your malasadas, but... More

Tried this place for the very first time and I highly recommend getting your pastry fill here. Eating the malasada's here while it's still warm is delicious. It was hard deciding what to buy and try but no matter what you choose, it will be good. The parking lot is small but most people buy their goodies then get in... More

This is definitely one of those places that you will probably want to try because you will not feel like you've "done it all" as a tourist if you don't. The location is a bit out of the way. Definitely not in the tourist area. The prices are low for the malasadas. The pastries are served warm. Although, there's a... More

Leonard's malasadas are amazing and addictive! My husband went two days in a row. I recommend the macadamia and chocolate-filled malasadas.

Leonard's Bakery was added to my "to do" list by transplanted Hawaiians. We were not disappointed. This bakery has all sorts of local stuff. We came for the malasadas and Portuguese sausage wraps that are a local favorite. We were not disappointed. This place is really just take out. Barely any parking except on the street and not much sitting... More

This was one of the places that I looked forward to trying because I have a big sweet tooth so I was quite disappointed once I tried the famous malasadas. I tried 5 flavors: original, cinnamon sugar, custard-filled, chocolate-filled, and the seasonal macadamia nut cream-filled. They were sweet and pillowy, but they were a bit greasy. They were good but... More
