It may be a food truck, but the Malasadas are the same as their flagship store in Waikiki.. AWESOME!! Highly recommended.

Remember that this is just a food truck. And it only serves malasadas, but a variety of them...some with filling. You will be rewarded with a warm, sometimes hot, dense yet melt in your mouth doughnut that will be gone in just a few seconds. After a long time of not buying malasadas, we came back for a malasadas after... More

These are heaven in a fluffy ball, doughnut like balls and you can get them stuffed with custard, chocolate or coconut cream!

You must try malasadas in Hawaii! You don't need to fight the traffic and parking problems if you visit the truck in the Waikele Shopping Center. If you plan on visiting the Waikele Outlets then you might consider visiting the truck. They have the standard favorites and the service is quick. They take cash and card. You get them super...

Every visitor to Hawaii has to try Leonard's malasadas! This is like a doughnut only without the hole. If u are shopping at the Waikele Shopping Mall stop by the Leonard's wagon across from Starbucks. Ask a local or a sakesperson if u can't find the wagon. After u try one u will be glad u did! Your only regret... More

Having read reviews I knew I had to taste their Malasadas (Portuguese donuts). I first tried them at the Waikele Outlet as they had a food truck there and they were incredibly fresh, soft and delicious. (I later found out their bakery was about a 30mins walk from our hotel, so I had to go again. This place gets very... More

For those that think Leonard's malasadas are only available in Waikiki then think again as it is available at Waikele premium outlets.The caravan is parked over by Petco and there is only a short wait and you have your piping hot malasadas to take away and enjoy.Delicious as always and not to be missed.

I love coming here early in the morning when the crowd isn't around. Great morning malasadas for me and the kids. Nice hot and fresh daily.

Was at the outlets in December 2014. As we were leaving to return to Waikiki, I noticed there was a Leonard's food truck. Needless to say when back in February 2016, I headed to it. We had went to Leonard's bakery in January 2011 for the malasadas and really enjoyed them. Under $2 for one. These are Portuguese donuts served... More

I'm sure these are totally unhealthy, but they do taste great... and come in several attractive flavours. Like a doughnut but no hole in the middle, and somehow lighter and tastier.
