You can’t beat Leonard’s Bakery for the freshest sweetest malasadas in the whole state of Hawaii. You put your order in, and then they make what you want. You can’t get any fresher or tastier. The malasadas are dipped in sugar crystals and crunchy on...More

Reminiscent of a croinut. Light and airy. Made fresh and filled if desired. Coconut and macadamia nut taste very similar. Chocolate is a lot like chocolate pudding. Something unique to Hawaii and worth the line you might have to wait in. Note, Maladadas are not...More

My wife and I heard about this place on a tour and was told it is a must try in Hawaii. We walked to Leonard’s and ordered a dozen of assorted Masalas. They were great and we would recommend them.
