I just had the pleasure of visiting Leonard's Bakery in Honolulu, for the very first time...Oh My Goodness, they are the best.

Hot, crispy, fresh and filled with your favorite fillings, custard, chocolate, coconut flavored cream, mac nut and monthly special which was banana, and wow were they good. Some of the best ever. We were greeted by a friendly staff, that took our order and in a few short minutes we were enjoying our hot malasada's. 

They also offer a variety of other baked goods since 1952.

Their Story

In June 1882 the British sailing ship ‘Monarch' brought Arsenio and Amelia DoRego from San Miguel Island, Portugal to Maui, Hawai'i under contract to work the sugar cane fields. Some 33 years later, their grandson Leonard was born. In 1946 Leonard and his wife Margaret moved to Honolulu with their daughter Diane, age 8. Leonard worked at Snowflake Bakery until he founded Leonard's Bakery℠ in 1952.

Leonard and Margaret were no strangers to hard work, both coming from very large families. The bakery prospered. Not long after opening, Leonard's mother suggested making malasadas for Shrove Tuesday – a Portuguese tradition. Although thinking it may be too ethnic, Leonard's bakers complied. Malasadas were a huge hit. And, the appetite for malasadas in Hawaii was born.Image title
