If you're looking for a tasty twist on the common donut, you need to visit Leonard's. Original, cinnamon, filled, not-filled, I've yet to meet a malasada I didn't like. It's an easy mile and a half walk from Waikiki and while generally crowded, the staff...More

There is a reason for the line at Leonard's. The parking there is also very limited so it's good to have a backup plan for someone to take one for the team and stand if there's no parking there. Their filled malasadas are served warm,...More

I went in early one morning on a Friday and the lady who took my order was not a morning person. I asked her to mix a dozen different malasadas for me and she acted like it was the hardest thing ever. I would've paid...More
