Leonard's is the best bakery on the island. Their Malasadas, a Portuguese pastry, are to die for! They make them to order, so they're always warm when you get them. This also means you need to be prepared to wait a few minutes, but they are worth the wait!

This place is a pain to get to and the parking/queue is nuts, but after craving Italian bombolone (deep fried custard filled donuts), this hits the spot. You feel like you should order and eat 2 dozen because of the effort to get them and because they're yummy, but for the sake of your arteries, restrain yourself!

I've tried many donuts but I have to say the freshness of these definitely makes them some of the best. We tried the cinnamon sugar plain, banana, and macadamia nut filled. The banana was by far my favorite. A must try but watch out for parking. It's hard to find a spot sometimes.

Had to wait in a line but it was worth it. After waiting in line to pay for our Malasadas, we waited for our order to be made FRESH. Those sugar coated cream filled donuts were hot out of the fryer and delicious. My only criticism of this bakery is that their offerings were limited. But, what the heck. Everybody... More

Leonard's is famous for their Portuguese donuts called malasadas. They are made to order and are so warm and soft and tasty! We sat on one of 3 benches outside of this small shop and devoured ours in record time. They are made in several flavors like plain,sugar,cinnamon sugar, custard filled and some daily specialties. They are about $1.25 each... More

Leonard's Bakery is an institution. It's a classic bakery where you buy malasadas (Portugues donuts). I prefer them filled. I love the banana or coconut . The malasadas are freshly made and delicious. Good thing, I don't live close to this place or I would be in trouble. A must stop by if you are in town.

For the malasadas, which are made fresh throughout the day. You probably won't find a spot in the parking lot, and be sure to eat the malasadas while they're still warm.

We had this at the end of our Hole in the Wall Tour. Delicious, although our orders can confused a bit. They did straighten it out finally. Glad we had a taste of this Hawaiian classic bakery !

Ok, this is not really a restaurant, no seating, nothing. It is a bakery where you buy malasadas (sort of Portugues donuts). You can get them plain or filled. I love the chocolate filled ones. Half a dozen is about 6-7 USD. The malasadas are freshly made and excellent. Grab a coffee before and you get a great combination. If... More
