Due to traffic issues we opted for the food truck version of Leonards in Wailele Outlet parking lot...there was no wait. Ordered the original, cinnamon sugar, coconut and custard filled. They were all served warm and fluffy..,omg so decadently good...would love the recipe! Would come back to Oahu just for these!

I'm glad Leonard's has the Malasada Mobile in the Waikele Shopping Center. It's so convenient if you're staying in the Kapolei area (western side of the island). Our favorites are the original with the sugar coating and the cinnamon sugar ones. We got a dozen assorted: regular, cinnamon, dobash (chocolate-filled), haupia (coconut) and li-hing. They're the best when hot. So... More

They have the best malasadas. I come from the neighbor island and they got the best. I like to bring home 2 doz. each time l'm on Oahu visiting. Get it while it's still hot some "ono". When you're on Oahu look for a red and white food truck they are in several parking lot.

It's good I don't live here, or I'd be in serious trouble. We stopped to pick up some malasadas on our way to do some snorkeling on the north shore.

I stop by this location whenever I am in the area. Although the menu is limited, you avoid the lines at the main location. There is some parking and a Starbucks across the parking lot

We were introduced to Malasadas by our guide on Oahu Private tours. They were sooo good that we also visited the main bakery. It's worth the trip.

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

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.

Thank mrsvickismith16
