Of course we thought it was going to be busy so we tried to come in around 8am before heading out to Disneyland. Sure enough it was already packed! Surprisingly, we were in and out in 10 minutes! It took us longer to decide which ones to get because we couldn't fit everything in our car! >_<

I called the Downey store around 7AM for 2:30PM same day pickup. 2dozens cheese rolls, a dozen guava cheese roll, and a dozen potato meatballs cost $37.50. There was a separate area for pre-ordered pick up! Twas a breeze! So happy with how tasty their products are!

This was my second visit to this place, a year prior, and it is still YUMMY. This time I sat and had lunch along with dessert.. The sandwich was great and chees Danish was still out of this world. You must try the cheese-Danish. Ask for a sample, they will gladly share.

I had read about this Cuban bakery online and when I arrived at my hotel nearby, the staff heartily endorsed the cafe. It is a huge building (almost 20,000sf) with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Wait in line and order your food and then it is delivered to your table. There are 2 lines with counters full of desserts,... More

Porto's has a great selection of bakery goods. They also have great lunches with a Cuban theme. I love the Cuban pork sandwich. They serve plantain chips with your sandwich. There I always a line of people. Definitely a popular place. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

On a school trip with the kids. The buses stopped nearby for a very early lunch, but there was hardly other places opened yet nearby. Visually, impressed by the size of the "bakery" and the number of people in line....must be that good? The line was long already without the 3 buses of kids adding to it. The display of... More

Portos has great food. Everytime i go, there is always a wait. I have waited as long as 1/2 hour in line. But i believe its worth the wait. They also have the best pastries. Their is a separate line for pastries only. I have seen the line for pastries wrapped around the building.
