Experienced Porto's for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Got a Cuban sandwich with plantain chips that was quite delicious. The bakery has many interesting items including their famous potato balls. Really good iced coffee as well. Make sure to park in the free parking area behind restaurant rather than on the street (meters).

It is no wonder there are lines out the door at this place no matter what time you go. the food is amazing. There are beautiful sandwiches big enough to share, salads, soups, traditional Spanish foods and mouthwatering pastries and desserts. Everything was delicious and the staff had a good system to get people served and seated quickly. I would... More

The eggs were perfect. the croissants buttery and flaky. Really really good and CHEAP! Long lines but worth it. The cakes and sweets looked great but... More

This bakery has the most beautiful desserts I had ever seen in my life. It has a bakery and a cafe area, each with delicious items to try. This cuban spot hits the spot, most cakes are exquisitely decorated and a taste to die for. The service is also great!

I loved visiting Porto's during my visit here. Excellent service and food quality. I was also here on Halloween morning and many people were dressing up and going to Porto's! It is a great experience with excellent food items. A must visit for coffee and pastry or brunch, whenever you're in Glendale.

You know when there is a long line daily there must be something pretty great about the restaurant! This restaurant did not let down. I might have ordered 3 different pastries just to try them. All phenomenal!

I was a little bit hesitant when my brother in law and my sister ask me to stop by this place. I'm from Texas and never heard of this cafe. There's a big line of people waiting to satisfy their craving for pastry, I was told was incredible. When my sister handed me the rolls filled with cream cheese, that... More
