Leonard's is well known for malasadas (fried dough coated with sugar - you can also get malasada puffs filled with haupia, dobash, and the filling of the month). My family stopped at Leonard's for a quick fix immediately after flying into Honolulu; we returned for more malasadas the following morning and for several dessert runs over the next week. We...

Leonard's is legendary for its malasadas. They make them through the day and people stream in non stop. I took the bus, which stopped almost at the door and ordered a dozen filled puffs. They sell coffee but there isn't much seating so I took them back to the hotel to share with my family. You won't regret the trip!

Our tour guide pointed out Leonard's to us on our way to Pearl Harbor. We made it a point to stop here and boy it was so GOOD.That was my first Malasada and hopefully not my last. It's totally worth the trip,don't miss it.

27-July-2016. Family experienced the sweet delight of donuts from Leonard's Bakery on recent vacation in Honolulu / Oahu. Leonard's is a local favourite! Donuts are different than those on the mainland US / Canada; not quite as sweet. Must say they made a lasting - though short-lived impression - as all 12 donuts were consumed in the course of a...

I had never even heard of a Malasadas until I went to Hawai'i with my hula teacher. He knew all about Leonard's and took us there for this heavenly treat. I had no idea of how to even order them and the line to the place was out the door. I quickly ordered 2 coconut, gauva and plain. They come... More

This is a must place to stop and get Malasadas. Clean environment and very friendly staff. The Malasadas are to die for especially the ones with the fillings.

This place was recommended by a friend who had lived in Honolulu. It was a challenge to find parking as there isn't much of a lot and none of the areas around there want you to park if you aren't patronizing them. There was a long line of tourists waiting and not many pastries in the case. We did get... More
