Good food!

Co-workers often brought in Porto's to share at the office, but I had never been there myself. Found ourselves there around 8am on a Sunday and the line was practically out the door! The decoration was much fancier than I expected for a bakery with chandeliers and high ceilings.....very clean and... read more

Amazing Potato Balls. Awesome coffee. Perfectly priced. Always crowded, which speaks volumes. This place is a must for our family every time we visit LA.

I have been to this place several times, it's cheap and super busy. Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about but that's me. Do not even attempt a weekend visit unless you have lots of time, it is a zoo. I got sick once from here and have not been back but that's more my thing than... More

When we arrived at Porto's it was about noon and the place was already packed with lunchtime diners. As first timers and being English too it was all a bit confusing. You have to stand in line (quite a long one fortunately at the time which gave us chance to study the menu, which included types if food and breads... More

Every time I have been, there's a long line. But again it's worth the wait. I would say it is one of the best bakeries in the area. Porto's Guava cheese pastry is well known and is yummy when you get if just out of the oven. The potato balls and meat pies are good too. Over the years, I... More

Food is delicious. Lines are long. Baked goods are spot on, coffee and smoothies are fresh. Seating is plentiful but because this place is so popular it may appear as though seating is limited. Luckily half of the customers are taking their orders to go.
