Leonard's Bakery: Whaaaat, not the malasadas?

Yummy visit to Leonard's last week when a friend was in town on vacation. We were wondering where to go for dessert after taking her to Ono Hawaiian Food, so I sneakily suggested either Bubbie's or Leonard's, since I'd been hoping to try either (a) the holiday flavor mochi ice cream at Bubbies -- cranberry & pumpking, or (b) the banana cream pie at Leonards. Random, right? Who goes to Leonard's for the pastries? I can't remember where I read about it, but I knew I had to try it.

Malasada menu: Just 90 cents! For Original, cinnamon sugar, or li hing mui (sour plum powder). And just $1.25 for a custard filled malasada (original, chocolate, haupia, or flavor of the month).
Love the schedule of malasada filling: mac nut, pineapple, mango, guava and lilikoi.
 Mmmmm, the squares of banana cream pie. They don't look that good behind the glass pastry case, but man they were worth it.

 Ooh, I want some of that Portuguese sweet bread next time I am there.
