“These are tasty treats, get em while they're HOT!!!”
Review of Kauai Malasadas - CLOSED

Kauai Malasadas
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Having never tried one of these before we made plans to swing by close to the 10AM' -ish opening. We got there around noon actually and we picked up some regular sugar and some cinnamon sugar Malasadas. They were hot fresh and delicious. Now these are true belly bombs mind you so only buy what you can eat within a couple of hours as they don't save very well and are best eaten warm. This was a yummy treat and very reasonably priced, give it a try if you're nearby.

A must do if you have never had malasadas. Yes - this place is a little unpredictable on days and/or later hours when open, but I found it open most days close to 10:30am. Once she sells out - they are gone so better to get early. If you have never had a malasada, please plan on enjoying them fresh for the best experience. The local custom is to get some and take to the beach and eat after swimmin and sunnin. For me an my fam - we don't make it down the road (barely out of the Kmart lot) before they are gone.

Two choices - sugar or cinnamon and sugar. Ok - so the place is limited on the choices with no cream filled here (and can't even compete with Leonards on Oahu). However, this is THE BEST malasada place on Kauai will keep you coming back for more.

What is a malasada you ask? A portuguese heavy donut that I would say is something between a fried biscuit and an elephant ear (fair food - not the animal) type texture. You can't go wrong with the price either as it was super cheap.

The best treat on the Island ! Beats any plain old pastry, these are hot, fresh and sugary. We visit this little gem frequently.

What can we say.......you must go and try these for yourself. We went this morning and picked up a box of 18. Our family of five polished them off in minutes and are already asking to go back. We will go again. These are sooooo good. What a wonderful warm fresh treat.
