Great place which doesn't break your bank account

Cheese rolls, strudels. Most basic, and the best. Tried their baguettes, and I'll stick with Trader Joes for those. There's always a line but it moves quick. I'm usually in and out in 10 minutes.

Porto's is a great place to go for breakfeast, lunch or an evening meal. It is always very busy but worth the wait. Lots of bakery products, pastries galore, cakes etc. One of my favorite things are their made fresh plantain chips better known as marekettas? Not sure if I spelled that right. I can go there every day if... More

This is where everyone buys their cakes! Portos is so delicious and reasonably priced. I love their sandwiches & their desserts. They deserve all of their rave reviews.

The guava and cheese rolls were delicious and priced well. The ham and cheese croissant was huge and very good. The dulce de leche kisses were tasty and a nice surprise. Parking was limited and cafe not recommended for large groups.

Awesome place.  If I lived closer I'd probably be stopping by here at least once a week. The cheese rolls are just rediculous. Whenever we bring a box of those bad boys to a party they disappear pretty quickly.  The potato balls are my wife's favorite. Those things are also crazy good.  You can basically order anything and it will... More

Stopped by for lunch on our way back North. This was only my second visit to Porto's (first one for this location) and I'm in love. It's busy but quick. Delicious, quality and priced right. Cheese rolls are perfection. Sandwiches are satisfying. I couldn't stop eating the plantain chips.

We stumbled across Porto's as we were heading to fly out of nearly Burbank Airport after our vacation. The sandwiches and meat pieces were great. Lines were long in the mid-afternoon. I can only imagine how long the lines are during peak times.

My son who lived in Burbank for a time insisted that we stop by Portos to get breakfast for the next day. So glad he did! We got potato balls (kind of a croquette with a spiced meat mixture inside of mashed potatoes and then fried) and cheese rolls which were cream cheese inside of a flaky pastry. So good!... More

Porto's doesn't need another review saying how amazing the food is. Everything from the baked goods, desserts, sandwiches, coffee- everything is amazing. But many of the reviews don't explain exactly how packed Porto's. Unless you get there at early in the morning, expect long lines and a considerable wait. I recently took some out of town guests to Porto's and... More
