First off, don't be intimidated by the long lines. The staff is quick and service is very well organized. It will move faster than you'd think. Plus, you're going to need those precious minutes to decide exactly what you are going to order! They have soooo much to offer! And everything looks delicious. I decided to go with their famous...

Leonard's Bakery is very good! Long line and very little parking, but worth it. If this is your first time order the Original Malasada - 2 per person is plenty! Only $1.00 per malasada. Right out the deep fryer - still hot! Excellent!!!

Leonard's Bakery is fantastic. There is always a line but it moves quickly. Seems really busy before 10 am. We tried the regular, cinnamon and local fav sweet / sour malasada's and enjoyed them very much. We tried each of the filled ones as well. Custard, chocolate and pineapple.

We stopped by Leonards twice during our vacation. The malasadas were delicious and fresh. Definitely a place to stop and eat at.

We also got the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies just to try.. oh man, it was so not a mistake - so delicious. My only regret is that I did not buy nor try more of them. I even tried looking if they have online store - they didn't.

Portuguese donuts ... absolutely go and try them. Old school, stand in line, take a number type place much like the italian bakeries in the Little Italy sections of towns on the mainland. Give the local unique flavors a shot, but the chocolate won't let you down either.

What more is there to say. If you don't like the stuff, then don't eat here. But if you love these little lumps of doughy goodness, this is the place to pick some up. The Malasada Puffs are pretty good, but I am more of a classic original type guy.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!! The coconut malasda is full packed with favor if you like some nutty in your doughnut. Warm, smooth, chew, and full burst of nutty goodness all around your mouth. I came hard when I hard to share my last bite!
