We absolutely wanted to try the famous Malasadas, and Leonard's was the highest rated reastaurant in Honolul. That was also near our hotel so we gave it a try. The bakery looks like it's still in the 50's with its neon road sign, it looks somehow like the Route 66 mom's and pop's diners. You can park outside the bakery (not much parking space neardby) and enjoy your food on the bench or take them home. We just wanted to try the malasadas, which are basically fried and sugar covered dough, so we ordered one each. We had the simple, plain malasadas. You can also try them filled with custard. They only cost one dollar each. They also offer other pastries, but malasadas are made to order, so we had to wait a little while for our order to be ready. They were delicious: hot, freshly baked, not chewy and surprisingly not greasy. We enjoyed or malasadas so much that we went immediately back in for more!
