We purchased every kind of malasada and they all tasted delicious. Staff were helpful and the price was nice and clean.

Think of a great big bag of hot, sugary sin... wonderful! I first noticed Leonard's when I saw a line fifty people long waiting to get in. My son promised to take us there, and what a treat! They make your malasada while you wait....More

This bakery has the best malasades around! The bakery has a little bit of everything but I suggest that you just get the malasadas- they are better than anything else there. They are like warm filled Donuts. They come in different flavors. The original is...More

Always one of our first stops! Always warm and delicious. The parking lot is a little awkward and hard to get into but worth it.

I understand this is the place to go. Rented a bike and headed out. My family loved the malasadas. Which is a Portuguese doughnut. Worth the trip.

A local favourite and not hard to understand why! Cheap and delicious. It’s about a 30 min walk from Waikiki beach to Leonard’s but worth it if you have the time.

If you're staying on the island, it's definitely worth your time and effort to go over to Leonard's for the malasadas. The cinnamon originals are really good and the malasada puffs, filled with cream (flavor of the month was mango) are just too decadent.

After reading the reviews I had to visit. I walked 2kms 6am one morning and this was THE ONLY place with any action. Cars pulling in everywhere and was a big line inside. The malasades were warm and delicious! You can’t get fresher and enjoyed...More

You may want to try Champion's malasadas instead, although the business is currently up for sale. I have heard arguments by malasada connoisseurs about whose malasada is better; Leonards or Champions. Personally I greatly... More
