Food is good, cakes and pastries are excellent, way too crowded to spend any time relaxing at a table.

from everyday desserts and custom cakes to their standing lunch menu. Potato balls #1 as meal or snack. Cuban Sandwich is one of my favorites.

Lunches are great! Fantastic sandwiches, potato balls, etc. But this is a bakery that all other bakeries should have as a model. I have never been disappointed.

Especially in the last couple years Porto's is our "go-to" location for breakfast pastries. They are yummy (haven't found one we didn't love, and we've tried just about everything!). On top of that they are so reasonably priced, even compared to supermarket goods which are not even close in flavor. My favorites are the cheese roll, and the chocolate croissant.... More

After lunch at another restaurant, we moved to Porto's for some pastries and coffee. The place really had a lot of customers and the seats we found were outside. The lines were long but moving. The staff were efficient and helpful. The cheesecake rolls were to die for and their coffee was not so bad. Would love to come back... More

Best bakery in California. Great selection of cakes, pastries, and cuban food. The midnight sandwiches and stuffed potato balls are the best.

I've actually been a fan of Porto's for many, many years. I've never considered it a restaurant per se. It's more a place to indulge in yummy baked goodies of which they have a vast selection. They also make delicious cakes for every occasion. My ideas may be a little outdated as, over the years and with a lot of... More

Great place to grab a bite & indulge your sweet tooth!!! If you can Handle the crowd(sometimes a lil hostile) then your in for a treat! Check out the menu & the display cases before you get in line.
