There was a knock on my door and all I remember is grabbing this pretty box and walking to the nearest counter. By that time I had sugar all over my mouth and there were three malasadas left. Marvellous Malasadas on my count is the Macadamia Nut and Custard fillings. For the one with no filling, I prefer the cinnamon... More

These are always malasadas worth waiting for even tho' parking is difficult. Did you know "malassada" in the Portuguese language means 'undercooked'?

The malasada's are the best ever. They are cooked to order and hot when served. One is not enough. Make a point of trying one if you've never had one, and if you have had one....go back for more!!!

We started our first full day on the island here after receiving a recommendation from the desk lady at our hotel. We were told we should try the malasada's but we got there and the apple fritter stole the show. We did get a malasada with the li hing coating because it was touted as a local favorite but my...

I heard about this place on The Food Channel and have visited both times when we have been to Waikiki. Always a line but moves quickly. The Malasadas are cooked to order. Highly recommend the Mango flavour! Lovely to visit a place that has been open for so long and has a family history. We walked from the Zoo area... More

After a heavy lunch we set of to try malasadas as we were around the Kapahulu area. The car park was small but managed to secure a parking lot. The queue was decent however there were many other people waiting for their malasadas. The queue cleared fast however we have to wait for our order as they are freshly made.... More

All I can say is "WOW". We were told on the flight to Hawaii to make sure we got some Malasadas from Leonard's. As we were driving by we just happened to see Leonard's and stopped. These were the best. Wish we could have some in North Carolina.
