Portos's will never let you down when it comes to Food, Dessert or Coffee ! This People know how to make things always right ! I have been going there for the last 20 years and not even once I was disappointed ! The only down side which naturally comes with popularity is the wait time specially Weekend Mornings ,... More

The sandwiches, pastries, cakes, coffee, salads are all fresh and so very yummy. Everything that our group ordered was absolutely finger licking good. We bought to take back home all kind of pastries and sandwiches. The guava and cheese pastelitos are the best I've ever had. The only bad thing is that there is no Porto's in Northern Cal.

Forget donuts, forget bagels, and be a true leader and pick up Porto's pastries for your staff! Not overly sweet, light and fluffy, and a wide variety that will surely bring a smile to everyone before you mention those angst words of monthly reports, inventory, or sales projections!

Always stop when going through Glendale. Great bakery with really good Cuban food. Never been disappointed with a meal from Porto's. The pastries are fantastic. A couple of suggestions if you go around lunch time. It is always busy. If you only want a sandwich there is an express line where you can order sandwiches and drinks. If you are... More

You will always remember your first at Porto's. When you bite into a tiny ball of mashed potatoes and a mini portion of meat hits your senses. It's pure Cuban gold. Porto's strikes a perfect balance of being a classy establishment and producing high value items, yet the prices are more than reasonable. You must try the potato balls, chicken... More

The only fault I can find with Portos is that it is way to popular. The pasteries and cakes are wonderful. You stand on line to buy a cake, but if you order ahead they will have it waiting. The food is simple, mostly sandwiches, but all are just great.

Portos Bakery is awesome. Unfortunately, the word is out, and the line often goes on for a really, really long time.

Hands down the best Cuban bakery. I go for the sandwiches and the croquetas. You can't go wrong combining the two - try the "Croqueta preparada" - its a yummy cuban "medianoche" sandwich with a croqueta stuck in the middle. You can get a very authentic Cuban coffee - ask for a "cortadito" if you want to play the Miami... More

My favorite place. The food is sooo good!!! Croissant sandwiches just melt in your mouth. When you drink their orange juice, seems like you are in heaven. I'm not talking about the desert. Try Red Velvet. Try everything here...but not at once!!! Enjoy..

Ordered pan con lechon and it was absolutely delicious. I swear it melted in my mouth. Also ordered a guava pastry but according to my husband it was dry. I didn't mind it. The dulce de Leche latte was better than any Starbucks drink. I will definitely return if I'm in the area! The only negative comment is that the... More
