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

Those who love Cuban pastries come from afar to Portos. The cakes are nicely decorated, tasty, but often very heavy. The chicken empanadas are very good but the baguettes are disappointing: full of air and little flavor. Conveniently small sized pastries, sweet or savory may be ordered for parties.

Cuban Sandwich. Top of the list on the menu. That is why I am here! This place is a ZOO. People in line everywhere, which line do I get in? The menu on the wall has so many options that is it is fine print that can't be read from the end of the line. The Counters are filled with... More

If you want to bring a home run dessert call and order one of their terrific cakes. Tiramuso, raspberry or mango mousse are first beautiful to the eye and ecstasy to the taste buds. They carry quava turnovers and a large selection of puff pastry creations. Known for their "potato balls" wick round potato stuffed goodies that have a surprise... More

If you go there, but their $0.70 cheese rolls!!!! Cheep, yummy, and very cute and petite. Only complaint I have is the people serving sometimes skips some food if you order too much. Also, place is too crowded. But once you try their food, I'm pretty sure you'd know why it's always crowded.

Wake up gt a coffee at Porto's. Drink it outside and watch the morning crowd filter in. Get second cup of coffee (cause it's the best in town) and have a few potato and chorizo's. Of if you are hungry for a little more instead treat yourself to the croissant with egg, cheese, and guacamole! Smooth baby smooth! :p Show... More
