Malasada Magic

Sorry folks, they do have the best malasada's, bar none. Every time we come to Oahu this is a must visit for us. In four years of coming they are just as good as they have ever been.

The donuts are known as malasadas and they are served warm and fresh, basically a staple in the Hawaiian diet. A must eat attraction!!!

Another Hawaii delicacy that we had to find. The Hole in the Wall food tour took us here for our first taste, then we soon found the bus to get us back here regularly! Highly recommend the vanilla custard filled ones, or macadamia, or actually any for that matter! These are made fresh when you order and best eaten hot.... More

Leonard's Bakery is the only place to go in Honolulu for the best malasadas. We have gone there over the years and they never change, the malasadas are always fresh and hot. Parking is a problem especially when the bakery is busy so beware of the side street no-parking signs.

Did not realize donuts could be prepared so delicious like this! Got the original with custard, ate them hot. Wow. The best treat ever. Light and fluffy. Just heavenly. Will have to go back one of these days.

While the wait to order was not particularly fun, the piping hot, fresh malasadas were worth the wait after we ordered. Parking is a little tight, but street parking is available. Prices are reasonable. The staff were efficient but not that friendly.

Leonard's is hyped, Leonard's is always crowded, Leonard's parking lot is always full. But, you know what, there is a reason, the malasadas are to die for. They are always hot and fresh, I recommend both the original sugar and cinnamon. My wife opts for the haupia and pineapple filled. Keep in mind that the fillings are like custard, not... More

If you like sweets, then you will love this place. And if you don't, then you will after you visit. Get an assortment and enjoy!
