Whenever I come home, I have to stop here for malasadas. Made to order....hot and fresh! They have great flavors and my favorites are the chocolate, haupia, and custard. There is nothing like a warm malasada anytime of the day....especially with your coffee...not too far from Waikiki...it would be a great walk in the morning from your hotel...and then you... More

Our son, who lives in Honolulu, said we had to try the malasadas at Leonard's, and I'm so glad we did! They are heavenly. We had the plain ones and the macadamia nut custard filled ones. Both were great. We took a few extra home to the condo and next morning they were still deelish. Get out of Waikiki and... More

That's a 2 mile walk each way, btw, and anyone who knows me knows that I don't walk 2 miles for nothin'! That's how good these... More

Fortunately, the queue wasn't too long when we visited. They serve fresh, hot, scrumptious malasadas. This place should not be missed when in Oahu!

Our bellboy at our hotel in Waikiki told us about this place and he did not steer us wrong. The malasadas are fabulous. We stopped one morning, on our way to Pearl Harbor. They are fresh out of the oven, warm, and oh so delicious. Worth every blessed calorie! Parking can be a little tricky in traffic, but worth the... More

Might be a little out of the way for some but it is definitely worth making the trip to Leonard's for some malasadas! Delicious!

They have a very small parking area, so it is very hard to park. The parking nearby specifically says no parking for bakery, so be careful not park there. It might be easy just park in Safeway and walk there. The place got really popular, so you need to wait for a while to get your Malasada. It's best eaten... More

Leonard's is a must stop for your vacation. It's all about the Malasadas. They're made to order doughnuts fresh for you. I liked the sweet and sour the best, apparently, it's a local favorite. Take an Uber over and stop at Bailey's Antiques & Aloha Shirts a couple blocks away while you're in the neighborhood.
