Always our first stop after we land in Kauai. October 2016, we picked up our car and went straight to Kmart to buy our malasadas only to find the stand was gone. When we asked the clerk inside the store, she advised that the new...More

maybe we were there on a bad day but while the photos and descriptions are of golden brown malasadas the ones we got were blackened and obviously over fried. A pity really. She is a nice lady and I admire her entrepreneurial spirit but she...More

We had to go back three times to try and but malasadas. I think she gets there around 10 but they aren't ready till 10:30am...Go after 11 to be safe. It's well worth it though. They are very tasty. I will say that I think...More
