Once again we broke our own record for the most ballots ever submitted by our readers. Those listed in this publication should be proud that our readers believe so much in what you provide and how you deliver excellence and value. Whether you were first, second or third, you should be proud to be part of this exclusive group. We would like to thank our Star-Advertiser readers (more than 600,000 every week!), whose votes continue to make “Hawaii’s Best” an award sincerely chosen by the people. It is an honor for businesses and services to be recognized by their peers, and it is our pleasure to present them as the “cream of the crop” for 2012. We also would like to thank our Star-Advertiser team that tirelessly counted the thousands of ballots. It is important to us that we maintain the best integrity by allowing only original ballots, and making this a true indication of our readers’ choice. We hope this year’s compilation of “Hawaii’s Best” will serve as a great guidebook and keepsake that showcases all that the Islands have to offer.

Looking towards a promising tomorrow...together. When my little sister was diagnosed with cancer, we were scared at first. Things got a lot better when we learned about the Queen’s Cancer Center. The expertise of the doctors, nurses and patient navigators has been a great help to us. The battle has just begun and it’s good to know that we are not alone.

Quality Cancer Care at Home, in Hawaii

The Queen’s Medical Center’s Cancer Center holds several Accreditations including: American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer with Commendation rating, American College of Radiology, and most recently, has been selected by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a NCI Community Cancer Center Program (NCCCP).

Celebrating

Years In Hawai‘i

Thank You Hawai‘i For Voting Us

“Hawai‘i’s Best Place for Malasadas” And to think, 60 years ago, it all started in a family-owned hole-in-the wall bake shop on Kapahulu Avenue with a traditional Portuguese treat brought over in 1882... In June 1882 the British sailing ship Monarch brought Arsenio and Amelia DoRego from San Miguel Island, Portugal to Maui, Hawai‘i under contract to work in the sugar cane fields. Some 33 years later, their grandson Leonard was born. In 1946, Leonard and his wife Margaret moved to Honolulu with their daughter Diane, age 8. Leonard worked at a bakery called Snowflake. He founded Leonard’s Bakery® on July 1st of 1952. Having come from large families, Leonard and Margaret were no strangers to hard work. Not long after opening, Leonard’s mother, Mary, suggested he make malasadas for Shrove Tuesday, a Portuguese tradition. The bakers thought it was too ethnic, well, it took off, the bakery prospered and the appetites for malasadas was born. Due to Leonard’s popularity, Leonard soon required a larger, more modern facility, moving into their present location at 933 Kapahulu Avenue 1957. Having an early hand in the company business, Leonard Jr.’s first job was sitting on a plastic bucket counting script in the red and white malasada wagon. “I remember it like it was yesterday—the 50th State Fair at Kapiolani Park, riding the Mad Mouse and listening to Rhythm of the Rain by The Cascades. I felt honored to be trusted with such an important job.” Leonard Jr. didn’t realize until years later that it saved valuable sleep time for workers starting again only hours after closing each day. Today, Leonard Jr. continues to keep the Leonard’s Bakery® tradition alive with new creations like the Malasada mobile®, Malasada Babies®, Pão Doce Pups® and Malasada Puffs®.
