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!

We'd heard about Leonards through travel books we'd read before going to Waikiki and they were right - these doughnuts are amazing. We went in the late afternoon so we didn't encounter many lines, and even though the display cabinets were fairly empty - we got fresh malasadas within seconds of ordering - and they were still hot. However, if... More

Absolutely worth the visit! The custard malasadas were unreal! The reviews on Trip Advisor convinced us to try it, and we were not disappointed!

Got a dozen original malasadas at Leonard's has not changed in over 60 years. Only the price. About $13.82 with tax for a dozen. If you never had them, buy at least two originals with sugar. All the other stuff is great but I like it simple. If you like beignets then you will find malasadas to be like a... More

heard about this place through many friends...quaint atmosphere, the wait is long 'cause everything is made fresh... was told to try it... it is good and fresh, but we found a spot that charges 1/3 the price... we went here once, and once was enough...

The malasadas are delicious! Many different flavors, but eat them while they are warm. Not so good the next day.

Quintessential Hawaiian tradition.....it's hard to be in Honolulu and not try the malasadas at Leonard's. Sure, there's never a place to park, sure, there's always a line, sure, you usually can't wait so you end up eating them in the parking lot.....hey, it's a traditiion.....not to be missed by anyone for any reason.
