We stopped by Leonards twice during our vacation. The malasadas were delicious and fresh. Definitely a place to stop and eat at.

We also got the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies just to try.. oh man, it was so not a mistake - so delicious. My only regret is that I did not buy nor try more of them. I even tried looking if they have online store - they didn't.

Portuguese donuts ... absolutely go and try them. Old school, stand in line, take a number type place much like the italian bakeries in the Little Italy sections of towns on the mainland. Give the local unique flavors a shot, but the chocolate won't let you down either.

What more is there to say. If you don't like the stuff, then don't eat here. But if you love these little lumps of doughy goodness, this is the place to pick some up. The Malasada Puffs are pretty good, but I am more of a classic original type guy.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!! The coconut malasda is full packed with favor if you like some nutty in your doughnut. Warm, smooth, chew, and full burst of nutty goodness all around your mouth. I came hard when I hard to share my last bite!

Malasadas in Hawaii are supposed to be the best thing going in terms of pastries. Leonard's Bakery was recommended by the locals as having the best malasadas on the Island. Needless to say, we tried them in various flavors and they were just OK; I mean, they were good, but they weren't "to die for". They remind me of jelly... More

Ordered: Original, Cinnamon Sugar, Custard Filled I'm not sure what the fuss is about with these Portuguese donuts. They're great but thankfully I didn't have to line up for them.
