There were three of us traveling together. Two of us choose to order Leornard's famous Malasadas and raved about how delicious these tasted. It was great how the Malasadas are made fresh to order. Then I choose a cheese danish that was fresh and scrumptious!...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
