A trip to the Burbank area is incomplete without a stop at Porto's. Their pastries are flaky, delicious and abundant in variety. We ate lunch there and had so many wonderful options -- sandwiches on their delicious bread, Cuban plates, etc. I had the chicken Cuban plate which included black beans, rice and plantain. Yum! Also, they have fresh squeezed... More

Great bakery to visit if you are in the area. Lots of fresh baked goods, Cuban sandwiches and other delicious food. Don't let the long lines scare you. It goes quick and give you time to pick out great stuff!

Although the line is usually long, it moves very well.... But the secret is not to wait too late in the day or your favorites might be gone.

From fresh baked bread, pastries, and rolls to delicious Cuban sandwiches and now serving meals. It a super busy bakery but well worth the wait. Oh and I must mentioned the cakes! The only place I buy birthday cakes!

The pastries are amazing and very reasonably priced. Cheese rolls are a must. Their cakes are beautiful, delicious and also reasonably priced. You can pre order everything so you can avoid the crazy long lines.

This place is BUSY! It is amazingly popular. We ordered lots of items from the bakery side including savory and sweet items. For two of us for a light lunch it was only about $18. There is a another side with plenty of seating and you can order custom sandwiches as well as other main dishes. Highly recommended.

Everything in this pastry shop is made from scratch daily. A huge staff of workers and regularly sell out of certain popular items such as potato balls. They also have coffees and smoothies which are delicious as well. Cakes for all occasions but order ahead of time for special orders.

Took an uber straight from Burbank airport at 8am prior to heading to Universal Studios for breakfast and the famous cheese rolls. Walked into bakery and greeted with 2 long lines, one for just bakery goods and cakes and the other for the cafe. Stood in line in the cafe line watching customer after customer walking away with boxes of... More

Portos bakery has remained the standard for Cuban sandwiches. I've known them for over thirty years and have ordered their cakes for almost all occasions and always order the Meat pies for all parties. The potato balls are my favorite. You should try everything but be ready for a long line always whether visiting Burbank or Glendale location You might... More

I like the food, hate the wait and parking is kind of challenging at times. There are a lot of fun shops to check out within a few blocks, so I try to make an afternoon of it.
