Deliciousness! Lightly sweet and the right flavoring. I Always go to Leonard's for malasadas. I recommend this place for locals or anyone who's just visiting.

They make the malasadas fresh to order. Roll them in cinnamon and sugar or eat them with a powdered sugar glaze. In either case, order more than you think you should because you are going to want more!

All you need to know is get the Mac nut malasada. They bake them to order so if there's a line you'll have to wait but they are worth it. Eat them hot while you're there!

Loved the Malasadas from Leonard's! They were warm and delicious! Must eat them fresh (same day)! We left one for the next day to share, but it wasn't the same... Just means we have to go back!

Stopped by Leonard's just to see what these little doughnuts are all about. Yikes!!! They are yummy. Kind of like a beignet but a bit heavier. We loved them. Get the originals - they are worth the calories.

What a wonderful experience eating the delicious Portuguese donuts at this bakery---their specialty! They are served warm and you just go out and eat them in your car and immediately want 2 or 3 more. So glad we took the advice of a local and went there---really worth it!
