This is a small but good outlet centre about 30 minutes from Waikiki depending on traffic on the freeway. Before you go register on the website (it's now called Simons waikele shopping centre) for the VIP as it's free and you get some substantial extra discounts. Currently there is an additional promo for MasterCard holders also. Without the extra discounts,... More

Great doughnuts from a food truck. Soft and doughy,sprinkled with cinnamon or sugar (plain if you want). Some are filled with jellies of the day.

This place is amazing, been to both the shop in waikiki and here. This is close to home, so very easy to get to on a weekend morning prior to heading to the beach. the cinnamon ones are to die for and always hot! LOVE LOVE these.

This food truck offers high quality malasaldas, at $1.10 for one without custard, and $1.50 with custard. The donuts are very sweet and doughy and are not to be missed. Very tasty!

Large range of outlets offering plenty of options. That said a lot of the shops are inefficient and provide very slow service.

What is there to say about Leonard's that hasn't already been said? Probably nothing, but I'm going to add my 2 cents anyway. I stop here often, often enough that the workers know me. I'm a purist, so I like the original malasada without the filling. These are best when eaten hot and fresh. For those that have never had... More

We were in the Ko Olina area and fortunately there is a Leonard's truck nearby in the Waikele Shopping Center. The truck is easily spotted from the highway to whet your appetite! It so simple but wonderful. Special dough fried in oil and sprinkled with sugar and you're in heaven! You can get them cream filled but the dough is... More

Having been located in Koalina due to grandchildren fondness for the Disney Aulani we lamented not being able to fulfill our malasadas fix on Kapahulu. By accident we saw a notation on the internet about a Leonard's malasadas being offered out of a food truck. We quickly set our gps for the location and found it across the street from... More

I happen to be craving for sweets and there it was at the parking lot. Leonard's Malasadas are always great for the sweet craving. Can't go wrong.
