Hawaii’s Beloved Agnes’ Portuguese Bake Shop Has Reopened As A Malasada Truck And We Couldn’t Be More Thrilled

Malasadas — fluffy Portuguese doughnuts without a hole — are wildly popular throughout the Hawaiian Islands. A crispy golden brown exterior gives way to a soft and chewy inside. Unfortunately, one of our favorite places to get malasadas on the island of Oahu, Agnes Portuguese Bake Shop, closed in 2018 after nearly 50 years in business. But this summer, the malasadas made a comeback at a newly-opened food truck of the same name. To say our mouths are watering at this news is the understatement of the century. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Agnes’ Portuguese Bake Shop is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a Kailua parking lot and you can learn more on Facebook.
