Excellent Croissants/Strudels!

The Cheese-filled Strudels were outstanding. They were the best tasting croissants I've had since my visit to France.

The signage was very confusing, and after waiting in line for lunch for 10 minutes or so to place a takeout order, we were told that... More

Went for lunch. There are a few lines so ask which line to stand in to order bakery, sandwichs, smoothies, etc. I used the express line to order a sandwich and a drink. I ate a hot pastrami sandwich, it came with potatoes fries thinly sliced. Portion size was average. There is seating in door and outside. After ordering sandwich... More

I love the pastries and the potato balls. It is jus delicious. Even my office mates bring them whenever we have small birthday events in the office. It gets busy lunch time and sometimes parking is a challenge. Also try the meat rolls they are good for snacks.

Places like Porto's should be everywhere but of course are too good to be everywhere, so NE LA gets this jewel. Above great pastries, coffee and deli sandwiches, go ahead and get fat.

We have stopped by Porto for a small family gathering. First I saw was a huge line of people which to my mind is there due to organizational issues. It's not quite clear where you order, and the most important where you receive your order. We ordered pastries, coffee and sandwiches and queued up where we ordered to get the... More

Porto's is an absolute must when you are in Burbank or Glendale,CA. The food is incomparable, the service is better than any place we have ever been. Their baked goods are wonderful, never be put off by a line(there is always a line) you are served in a very timely manner. Everything is fresh and flavorful.

Thank Kathy M
