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. Unfortunately, I can't recommend their brewed coffee. Service isn't especially friendly but it is efficient,... 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 Oahu!! They double as a great snack later, too....though of course warm and fresh is... 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.

Great donut. It's perfect if you're walking from the Honolulu Zoo. The parking lot is very small so walking is the best way to get there. The coconut filed is the best

Thanks TA for the recommendation to go here. Otherwise I would have never found it. The malasadas were heavenly. The butter mochi was so good. Expect a line. The malasadas are made to order. Worth the wait.

Was recommended to get donuts from here by a local. Bit of a walk from Waikiki but well worth it. Paid for 6 and got 8 which was a nice bonus. Especially loved the Malasada custard filled puffs.

We were taken here during our personal island tour and holy heaven in a pastry! So warm and delicious. Calling them a doughnut almost seems rude! Ours were fresh out the oven so your "mileage may vary" but completely worth a stop.
