My partner insisted we try malasadas at Leonard's Bakery while we were in Hawai'i. We went early one morning (around 7:30-8am) and waited about 10mins in the line to order our malasadas. After waiting another few minutes of them to be made (they're all made fresh to order), we enjoyed eating them on the benches outside the Bakery. They were... More

Here's the deal – once you have a malasada from Leonard's, you'll compare everything else to that one. We had a variety, but the plain original and the flavor of the month for December, Banana, were absolutely outstanding. As others have said, parking can be an issue and you'll have to wait for your order to be cooked, but all... More

We had these as part of a food tour and they were so delicious. Many flavors to choose from but my favorite was coconut. Although they are fried they don't seem greasy or fatty. A must visit! A tip if you can't get enough, look out for the red and white striped van at the Waikele Outlet Malls too, they... More

Kind of a must do if you are in Honolulu. Try getting original and the filled maladadas. We liked the coconut filled. Parking here stinks so you may be frustrated. They also cook them to order so you will most likely have to wait a little, but it will be worth it! Haven't tried anything else here, stuck with what... More

We were super excited to try this bakery -- it's been around for AGES, since my mom lived here (many, many years ago!) There were so many good reviews we were expecting the best malasada ever. Don't get me wrong, they were good -- light, sweet, and rolled in cinnamon sugar. But -- They were just like any other doughnut... More

First and foremost, the parking is a disaster near this landmark location. With that said, the treats are well worth it. The masaladas were tasty and need to be eaten warm. Pick from the various flavors and eat them as you walk out. Fun and tasty.

This place is a little walk off the main Waikiki strip but well worth it! The line up was out of the door when we went and the donuts are all made fresh to order so expect a little wait. We tried the regular masaladas and they were so soft that it tasted like you were eating the cream filled... More
