This is the place to get fresh baked malasadas. Malasadas is best only when it's fresh. For those who are not familiar with malasadas, it's almost like a round donut. Except malasadas is more breadlike in consistency. Best when paired with a cup of hot coffee. Enjoy.

My niece lives in Honolulu and said my visit would not be complete without a visit to Leonards. Just a little donut shop with a long line of customers. Fortunately, the line moves fast. We had no problem except for trying to decide what all to get.

Leonard's simply has the BEST malasadas (in my opinion). Not too doughy and cooked to perfection with lots of sugar. The also have a lot of other choices, but the malasadas are what most people are looking for. Definitely a must visit when on Oahu. The have several locations and small road side trucks too. Check them out. You won't... More

My wife saw the reviews and she had to have it. When we arrived we saw that everyone else did as well. Very busy, and it didnt disappoint. The baked goods she picked up were hot, fresh and delicious. Highly recommend.

The BEST malasadas. If you visit Hawaii or live here, this is the place you must go to. Melt in the mouth, hot and flavorful... If you've never had malasadas make it your mission to start here. Close to Waikiki. Easy to find. We go here all the time...

This was the first time I visited Leonard's Bakery and it was amazing. I got the signature donut just with the cinnamon and powdered sugar. They give the donut to you warm and fresh. A taste of heaven. If you are in Waikiki you definitely have to make a pit stop at Leonards.

Plain malasadas are always a favorite of ours. It a must in Hawaii. They are yummy for breakfast or for snacks.
