"Ono"

"Ono" in Hawaiian means delicious. That word says it all! The malasadas are airy on the inside, has a slight crunch on the outside and is rolled in sugar, and is best eaten hot. It's hard to resist having one before you get to the car, so if the bench in front of the bakery is open...sit and enjoy... read more

There are places that one just can not miss when traveling and Leonard's is one of those places. Don't think about the calories.. just think about the delicious taste biting into this local favorite. Depending on where you are from, there might be "donuts" that exceed in taste, but nowhere else will you get years of culture along with your... More

This place is a must....don't let the lineup scare you away it moves fast. My favorite is plain Malasadas. They are made for you on the spot, so savor them while they're hot!

Not a big donut fan but the Malasada hit the spot. I got the macadamia nut filled one and it was gooooood... After we ate our cream filled goodness we walked to Diamond Head to walk off the calories.

This is the only place to go for the original malasadas. The taste and consistency has not changed over the years. To keep up with the times they have included different flavers

Four star rating is for the Malasada not for the sales girl behind the counter. No matter you have a rental car or not (we had a rental car, but bus is easy to take), you need to go there and try different flavors of Malasadas. We went there after we left the Rainbow Drive-in (not worth the time to... More

The Malasadas are to die for. We got pack of every flavour and finished those and went back for more. So yummy. The Leonard's Truck at Waihele Outlets was a welcome break from shopping.

We were driving from our hotel to the main highway and saw a long line up ahead. Driving by we saw that it was a bakery. YES! Made a note to come back later and check it out. SO glad we did. When we returned there were only a few people in line so we stopped in. We ordered the... More

We ordered one regular and one filled donut and both were very average. I feel like I've had better fresh donut before and this one wasn't as amazing as I was told. The price was very good however. 1$ for regular And 1.35$ for filled.
