“Hard to find if you're not a local”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Took a couple of drive bys and several turn-arounds before I finally found this place, but it was worth it. That said, the malasadas are fresh and tasty, but oh the calories! It was on the to-do list, but now that we've tasted the goodies, it's too sweet for us to do it often.

“Awesome food/ need coffee. ”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Malasadas and Pao Doce are delicious. If you're in Hawaii you have to grab a little of each. My only gripe is they could clean house if they set up some decent coffee with real cream. Maybe three choices in those self serve pump carafes.

“The Freshest Hottest Malasadas!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Yum! We always make a stop at Leonard's Bakery when we visit. So worth the wait in line! I especially love the Li Hing Malasadas. Parking can be a little tricky but also so worth the effort.
