Another establishment that has learned to efficiently deal with extreme popularity. Mobbed on a late Saturday morning but still got our order in a reasonable time.

I like Porto's. I am no evangelist or rabid fan. I don't understand the hype. Everything I ever had from breakfast sandwich, pastries, catered affairs- all were really really good. Parking is a pain. The hectic atmosphere has sent me right back out the door. The different lines I find confusing and it always feels like I am in the... More

I've been going there for years love the potato balls, refugio, empanadas, tamales, platanos stuffed with beans and lightly sprinkled with sugar and soooo many more. Try out their sandwiches pretty much everything in this place is delectable

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!
