Yummy

About a mile from Waikiki beach. They serve hot doughnuts equivalent to Crispy Kremes. There are other pastries as well. Delicious! Safeway grocery store is across the street with a very good deli.

Parking very difficult. Had to park our rental car a few blocks & walk. Not worth it. Similar to fried dough. Tried 4 different Malasadas. Tasty

Fantastic little bakery, the malasadas (porteguse donuts) are the best, love the ones with Haupia or macadamian nut filling with cinnamon on the outside. A must if you are in Hawaii but be prepared to wait, long lineups and they are made fresh as you wait. Never go by there without stopping.

Leonard's Bakery is ok. I was not impressed by the way we were treated, very slow, and no acknowledgement when coming in or thanking us when we left. we had to stand in line out side as place very small, finally got in. and waited about 25 minutes to get our filled donuts. the time was around 8am one time...

Read so much about it and when we finally had it, we understood what the craze was about! Simply divine! Now I understood why they've been here forever!! Surprisingly the inside of the shop looked old & tired. They do have other bakery goods. I wouldn't say the service was top notch, it was ok. The malasada are not on... More

The concierge at the hotel recommended this bakery for a sweet treat called malasadas. It is like a beignet with a filling. I had never tried this dessert before. It was really good. A must try when in Waikiki!

Went there in the afternoon and got the malasadas. Wonderful taste. Taste better when fresh and warm.

Malasada, never heard of it before until I came here and now I'm hooked. Little puffs of dough and sugar. Fresh and hot, made to order. Not as good heated up but still really good.

My wife did some research to the best bakery to serve malasadas, and came up with Leonard's bakery and it did not disappoint us at all. The donuts were freshly made and tasty although I don't know how many caloreis are in each malasadas. We had even returned two more times to get some more
