The debate over the best malasadas in the Waikiki Beach area is a contentious one. However, when it comes to the cream-filled variety (versus traditional sugar or cinnamon coated) the debate was obliterated when Penny’s Malasadas moved into the Royal Hawaiian Center in the summer of 2022.
Penny’s varieties boast a thicker, creamier, and more flavorful filling compared to other bakeries within a 2.1 mile radius, while the pastry holds its own with the longstanding competitors. Furthermore, there is no 30-minute lineup under the hot sun or rain to contend with.
Recommended Flavors for Your Box of 3 Filled Malasadas:
