Agnes Portuguese Bake Shop located in Kailua was very clean, service exceptional, and the malasadas wonderful. We used a Groupon for two dozen fresh hot malasadas and two large coffees. It was a great deal! We waited about 15 minutes for our donuts, but used the time to enjoy our coffee and visit with the locals. Call ahead if you're... More

FOOD: Tried Malasadas for US$1.00 each. Rating: 5/10 (a bit damp inside)* Also bought Portuguese sweet bread loaf for US$4.15 as takeaway. Rating: 7/10 when toasted (light and crispy). * We tried Malasadas (US$1.10 each) at Leonard's Bakery too. They were comparable. They are just donuts! Nothing extraordinary. :-) PRICES: Prices were reasonable. For example, a loaf of bread from... More

Of course they may also be the only Malasadas in Kailua, but still great. You have to either order ahead or be prepared to wait because they don't make them until you order them. They also have a selection of other pastries (we always get the cinnamon sugar donuts if any are left). Order a cup of coffee while you... More

Fresh breads, baked goods and local favorites. I stop by for coffee and to choose one of the freshly baked muffins, bread pudding or something else that looks yummy. The bakery carries McDougle's Bread...charming gem in Kailua that has been a mainstay for many years

Excellent, true-to-origins Portuguese baking...malasadas are yellow from real egg content, not from dye,as the big-industry ones are. Baked fresh-to-order, always delicious. Good assortment of breads, rolls, cakes, cookies, etc. Again, not mass-produced but quality-assured!

The employees are very friendly and offer very good treats for a good price. First time we went there was 2 years ago and still it is a good place to get good bread and nice desserts.

This is our home town Portuguese bakery. We love the "best on O'ahu" malassadas, the "ono" bread pudding, and the Double-Double Jump cake which can be purchased in a loaf pan, but we often have it for birthdays with mocha buttercream frosting and espresso filling. There is certainly more to Agnes' pastries to explore than my review indicates. Please note... More

This is a great place to stop in early and pick up breakfast. They also have wonderful rolls. We visited several times, but do not wait until late in the day because nothing will be left.

Stopped by Agnes to pick up breakfast for the family and was not disappointed. We tried a variety of different options including donut bars, a Hawaiian sweet bread filled with sausage, traditional donuts, and a cinnamon roll. Everything was fresh and delicious. They also offer malasadas, but you need to order these ahead of time or wait for them to... More
