Absolutely delicious! A must have. You don't want to pass Leonard's Bakery. You can enemies find Leonard's trucks around town.

This is the best malasada puff I have ever tried. So airy, so dainty, so light and delicious. The li hing puff was amazing.

This is the place to get your sweet-tooth fix, don't let the imposters fool you. This is the real deal! Be patient, be nice and go early. The more popular treats usually sell out earlier in the day (i.e., lady fingers). Everything is baked fresh and the wait could fish-tail all the way outside to the parking lot. It is... More

Partner and I ventured to Leonard's in search of coconut cream pie. We were disappointed as they don't make it. We settled for a custard pie instead.

My husband and I took 30 minutes walk from the hotel to the bakery. I have to say, the bakery is worth a visit!!! We bought half-dozen for we two, and we soon realized that we should have bought more. ;) The flavor of the month, peach, is super awesome. Come to have some, or you will regret.

We stayed 8 nights in Oahu, Honolulu and found plenty of better patisseries in Waikiki and bakeries around the island which were 100 times better than this place. The malasadas leave a foul bitter taste in your mouth after you eat just one they are rolled in so much sugar you will have enough extra for a few months .... More

We went in there to buy one donut and ended up spending $30. The food is delicious. My absolute favorite is the pineapple delight which is a frozen yogurt. It's a must try!

A must stop every visit!!! I dream of the Malasadas from Leonard's. The chocolate are great but my favorites are the coconut and the custard. I warn you, you can't just eat one!!

Thank hmmbirdpat
