What can you say? MALASADAS!!!! Best when it is hot and fresh... Don't go overboard and order two dozen, because it won't be the same if you wait days to eat them. Tried the custard and haupia filled, just as good and even messier. Limited...More

I love their malasadas, but they're not always consistent. Sometimes their very airy with not much dough and at other times they're dense with good chew.

Tried the original and Long Hui malasada as well as the custard cream puff and all three were so delicious! They came out hot and quick, and service was lovely! Definitely a must try if you're in Honolulu!

Always hot and fresh. Parking lot very small. Pasteries were very good. Easily to get to from bus. A staple in Oahu.

Fun spot to check out. One malasada is very cheap. I didn't like it that much but I'm not a huge doughnut person. They are a decent size so bring an appetite.

Leonard’s cooks you fresh, hot malasadas. I personally love the original flavor, but all the flavors are delicious. We also got an eclair. Amazing! Highly recommended to fans of baked goods.

I was a disappointed with the donuts. When the donuts were hot, they were good, nothing to rave about. But once they cooled, they were ok. I wouldn't get them again.

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
