Leonard's is a ways from the beaches but well worth it. Be prepared for a line. The Malasadas were delicious. We got some with the filling (puffs) but we didn't think the filling added much to the Malasadas. If you are going for the filling get the flavor of the month. We had pineapple filling and it was better than... More

Leonard's Bakery has been a part of my life since childhood. I'm glad to see that they added in other types of Malasada's especially the cream filed ones. If you're watching your sugar intake you can even request no sugar which is still tasty. Now days everyone is making Malasada's but no place can even come close to Leonards quality.... More

If you have already had your carbohydrate overload of rice and mac salad, then you MUST try Leonard's Bakery for your doughnut fix! Leonard's is a landmark in Honolulu, love the original vintage sign and decor. As a tourist, you'll want to try it. Parking is terrible and there aren't very many parking spots. It's a hassle trying to pull... More

I grew up on Oahu, and, Leonard's Malasadas never goes wrong whether you are ordering from their trucks or from the bakery. Everything is good with their bakery goods. I wish they had a bakery here where I currently live on the mainland. However, on my last occasion to visit, the line was long (it was mid-afternoon, there was mid-afternoon... More

You can pick a filing, I loved the custard. These are very tasty, fresh and piping hot. The service was also good.

These malasadas were the best I've ever ha. They were fresh, mouth watering and super scrumptious. We shared a variety pack so we could try all the flavours. My faves were original, chocolate filled, and Li hing! Must try while in Waikiki!

We were hoping for great Malasadas while in Hawaii and Leonard's certainly lives up to all of they hype! We had both the original and puffs and all of them were great. The line was pretty long when we got there, but the guys behind the counter were quick and friendly so the wait didn't seem too bad.

We ended up going there twice, their malasadas were amazing, a few flavours to choose from. The parking in front of the place is busy but rotates fast so you won't have to wait that long (and if you do - Safeway is across the street).

Had to visit, this place is like 5 minutes drive from Kalakaua Avenue.. Tried ALL the malasadas and decided that the filled ones were the best, don't even bother with the plain ones if you are only there for a visit and don't have time to try them all. They are made to order and you get the fresh and... More

My husband was born and raised on Oahu, so he has very vivid memories of malasadas at Leonards. In May, when we were there, Leonards was first on our list -- still very very busy and the malasadas are as luscious and delish as ever. And they now ship the to the mainland.
