The cakes and croquetas are the best. They do have more variety than other local Cuban bakeries, but the other one around the way is still my favorite. The two things that I do love at this Porto's is the Ham croquetas, Chicken croquetas, and the Milk and Berry cake, which is a 3's Leche Cake with strawberries, blueberries, and... More

Loving the sandwiches cakes and drinks! Prices are very reasonable. Service is fast and staff are very accommodating. Lined up for around 30mins around lunch time on a weekend. I say it's not that bad. I love Porto's!

My wife and I love this place. We dine here often and enjoy the food and ambiance. The pastries are the best especially the guava and cheese pastry. If you can look past the long line of people then you will definitely enjoy the food.

This was my first time and I cannot believe how amazing everything was. The staff was friendly to point out what they are k own for and even offered samples. The meat pie was amazing, I don't remember the name but ask for the caramel drop. The mango mousse was out of this world and was perhaps the best dessert... More

I visit portos often and it never disappoints. the food is always delicious, pastries are always delicious and even the drinks are always on point. I recommend the Dulce de Leche coffee, my favorite sandwich is the Ropa Vieja and all of their pastries and cakes are highly recommended!!

I grew up in Downey but currently live in Boston. Every time I come back to visit my parents requires a visit to Portos. Come for breakfast and lunch. Streets are absolutely incredible. Coffee is out of this world. Too many pastries and too little time.

went here with the entire family - grandma and grandpa included. Lines are usually long but move really fast. Great selection of small pastries. Love the cheese rolls and only $.60. They have another line if you're ordering/buying cakes. Love the shredded pork sandwich. It's basically shredded pork that falls apart in a crispy outside soft inside bun. They serve... More
