The Malasda's were Awesome. Nice and Fresh. Very nice place. The employees were great. This place was on the Food Tour, to the North Shore.

I have tried Malasadas before, but none of them come close to the crispness and incredible flavors of Agnes's. This is a small, unassuming, hole in the wall mom and pop shop with the friendliest and most welcoming staff. A true measure of Aloha. Stop here as you do a drive to the North Shore from Waikiki. You will not... More

Totally agree w lifeexploer's review re "0" customer service!! Had the same grouchy girl take my order....no hello, goodbye, thank you....nothing! Just a unsmiling, unwelcoming attitude that made me wanna turn around and spend my money somewhere where they actually treat their customers w a little more gratitude instead of bad "attitude!" Auwe

Agnes has been around Kailua for years and years. They make excellent malasadas which should be ordered ahead of time. Their coffee is their weakest point. The do have other sweets and a few tables for enjoying conversations.

Portuguese breads, donuts, and baked goods at a small, authentic place. Traditional foods in a bare-bones but pleasant setting. Delicious coffee -nd a pretty fair selection treats to eat there or take home for later. The maladadas here are crisp and sugary on the outside, soft and steamy on the inside - a perfect example of the traditional Hawaiian food... More

This Euro-Bakery does breakfast and lunch except on Monday. It's a carry-out place great for road trippers, but also has a few tables. European style bakeries are scarce in Hawaii so take advantage when a good one appears. This is a good one.

We have ordered 2 dozen fresh malasadas from this very unassuming bake shop 2 times already since we've been here. Just call them up about 15 min. beforehand and they will make them fresh. Great for breakfast as well as dessert! They make 1 flavor- cinnamon sugar and they are definitely delicious when fresh. We froze leftovers and then warmed... More

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
