I really enjoy this place for lunch. It has variety of sandwiches, all delicious, especially if it is in Cuban bread. It has outdoor seating.

Consistency, consistency, consistency...can't say it enough! All three Porto's have the same EXCELLENT customer service and delicious food. I watched as we walked in..from the lines to the coffee counter - the logistics involved in running this uber fabulous bakery - is insane! Well oiled machine, this business model is going to last!! Recommendations: Dulce de Leche kisses, Cheese rolls,... More

I wish this place was open later! We just had coffee and pastries. Really hit the spot! It was packed, though. Nevertheless, the line moved fast.

Everything I have tried had been awesome. Cuban sandwich is a must, very tasty. The potatoes balls are awesome , we always take some home. They have lots of cake, cookies and pastries. The coffee and leche (milk) is yummy. They also have cold drinks, mango smoothies. Finally they have the most beautiful cakes.

There is a reason why Porto's is number one in the area: it's food, deserts, drinks, service, and price, (to name a few). Well worth waiting in line ( which moves quickly).

No organization, food was cold, bad representation of Cuban food & lousy service. I am sure pastries are good.

Their dulce de leche cookies are so delicious. Don't let the long line fool you, it is definitely worth the wait! I took home 5 boxes of the cookies!

I stood in line on Christmas Eve for 90 minutes before I could even get into the restaurant to order desserts for take out, and yes they were that good. Have not eaten a meal here, but the desserts are a bit hit for miles around.
