Fun place ! Hot Malasadas Custard was our favorite ! Give em a try !! Eat em while there Hot ! ...........................
Worth a stop... Though we would try the one of each; Original and sugar/Cinnamon covered chocolate and custard Masaladas.They are bigger than expected, regular doughnut size. Not doughnut hole sized! We had them for a couple days, but they are not nearly as good day two. My Favorite was the original custard, but the chocolate was also very good. Go... More
OK, another place people RAVE about in Waikiki. It's always crowded with tourists and locals and people are always waiting - as the Masaladas are served fresh. I ate one - pretty good - kinda like an eggy, soft warm sugar doughnut. It almost melted in my mouth - could have been because of the grease :) I liked it,... More
We went to visit Leonards on the last day in Waikiki and I am SO glad we did! The traditional Portuguese pastry (similar to a doughnut) is absolutely to die for. We tried the traditional, custard filled, and chocolate filled. I recommend the traditional hands down. I even bought a T-shirt!
Our tour guide brought us here on our first day in Honolulu. We hadn't heard of malasadas before but they became our favorite breakfast treat. My daughters made me take a cab each day to fetch malasadas and bring them back to the hotel. Outstanding!
Saw this on Trip Advisor and since everyone gave it a high ranking I decided to go. Saw the line outside the door and thought to myself that these have to be absolutely mind blowing! We tried the chocolate, pineapple and coconut pastry and the filling lacked flavor! Sigh! The hype was short lived and my taste-buds were disappointed:(
If I could, I would give it 3.5 stars. They are fresh donuts (without a hole). They were good...but not earth-shattering as some reviews may have you believe. I didn't like the ones with fillings though. We got a few for variety and liked the basic one the most. But if you're cramped for time, I think they are okay... More
We tried the Malasadas Puffs in three flavours: coconut, chocolate and custard. All were deliciously warm, melt-in-your mouth. We purchased a little box of half a dozen and ate them at the beach. Sorry pigeons, none for you!
On the Diamond Head end of Waikiki, north up Kapahulu Ave (the same road the Honolulu Zoo is on). This bakery will surprise you with the variety of cakes. Known for their hot Malasada's, which come tossed in plain sugar, or cinnamon sugar ($1 each). Each month they make Malasda's with different filling. In March the filling is Lilikoi (Passionfruit).... More
We ran across Leonard's on TripAdvisor and decided we needed to give it a shot. It's a really neat place with a 50's feel. The Malasada's are made after you order and are delicious. They are also open late if you have a late night craving for sweets!
