Heard about Leonard's and had to try it. They make everything fresh after you order it. The best way to describe them are like hot fresh doughnuts without the hole. I tried the Macadamia filled and it was good. I didn't think they were 5...More

Leonard's Bakery is a must. I know that may sound silly, but they make the malasadas fresh for each order and they are so delicious. The line may look long but it moves fast. The worst part will be picking which ones to try:)

Tasted great for the first time , but found a much cleaner better place, don't bother with the filling ones; wasn't that flavorful as I hoped for, Pipeline bakeshop and creamery was better

I'm kind of torn on this. There's no question that Leonard's has great baked goods at very reasonable prices, so I'd recommend them on that score alone. While they're famous for their malasadas, they do all kinds of other items that are just as good....More

Their Malasadas were AMAZING!!! Freshly made and hot out of the cooker when you get them (made to order). We tried both original, cinnamon, and the custard and chocolate filled - none of them disappointed! Definitely a must have for breakfast while you are on...More

Stopped by about 11am, short wait. Worth every minute. Parking c an be a challenge. The malasadas are delicious. You can get them with fillings but I prefer the sugar and cinnamon. They were still warm. This stop is a must!

They were warm and ok. The line was long and we were excited. Maybe the filled ones are better. We tried 3 flavors of unfilled and they were ok. would not go back.

You may want to try Champion's malasadas instead, although the business is currently up for sale. I have heard arguments by malasada connoisseurs about whose malasada is better; Leonards or Champions. Personally I greatly... More
