You have to stop in and get a hot malasada...they offer a weekly special filling flavor. We loved the coconut, cream and pineapple flavors. If you have never had a "long john" you have too! Coffee is good and hot. You do have to get there early if you want some for breakfast, but it is well worth the wait,... More

If you want the best rendition of Masaladas on the island, then look no further. This is the place. You will wait (even at 6am), because the masaladas are made to order in the morning, but its sooooo worth it. They are airy sugar coated dough balls that would accompany any coffee lovers morning routine. We also go the "Pineapple... More

Bought some bread To go and the same was warm and bit fluffy. We ordered the  malasada which is a portugese doughnut without a hole. Both the original sugar and cinnamon tasted great. We had some coffee to go and the same filled our tummies for breakfast to go. Well made! While there was a line in queue, we did... More

We had heard about Leonards and needed to try them for ourselves (as we had been disappointed by other malasadas bought elsewhere we had tried). They were amazing - don't go anywhere else for your malasadas. We ordered a dozen with mixed fillings. The flavour of the month for June was pineapple - yum! But my favourite was the custard....

This place is wonderful and a must stop for fresh still piping hot Malasadas. They bake many other goods which I'm sure are excellent but I never get past ordering their Malasadas. There can be a long line if you don't get to Leonards early but it is truly worth the wait for these oh so delicious Portuguese Doughnuts. Seasonal... More

We stopped in on our way to the airport when leaving the island and we're so glad we did! We had some chocolate and glazed treats and they were delicious! An $8 breakfast was a nice change!
