Luckily on our trip we had friends who either are or have been residents on the island to give us the places where locals love to eat. The one item they said we had to have was the Malasada, a Portuguese donut. This bakery is owned and operated by a local family who makes each batch fresh as ordered. They... More

Our friend grew up in Hawaii and wanted to go here because she went here as a kid. The malasadas were fantastic - served warm and available with or without filling. I also got the apple square, which was delicious! .

The line was out the door, but the malasada was hot, fresh and fast. We took the bus from the Marriott and it was an easy trip.

I recommend the Malasada puffs, they have several different flavors. Custard, mac nut, coconut. A must when coming to the island.

Every time we go to Oahu we stop at Leonard's several times! My favorite malasada is the Haupia filled! It's incredible! You have to eat them very fresh so don't order too many. They are literally like heaven! Go now!!!!

So fresh and good. Not greasy. There are a few other places in Honolulu that offered malasadas, but Leonard's was my favorite.

Stopped in as part of our food tour, had preordered so did not have to stand in line. Busy spot, be prepared for a line up to get your snack or you can have multiples as a high sugar content meal. Worth the stop.

This place is wildly popular- the line was out the door and parking was tough, but my hubby stayed in the car on the side street while I ran in. They are similar to New England dough boys, except that they're lighter and fluffier and way yummier! We got the sugar and cinnamon sugar ones and a haupia-filled (coconut sauce... More

Delish! You know you are in the right place when the line out the door is filled with locals! Get an assorted dozen and try them all! They melt in your mouth!
