I have purchased numerous cakes and tortes to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, baby showers, and just because. Favorites from family and friends, the beautiful fruit torte and that delicious carrot cake. I have even taken cakes to San Diego for celebrations. If you want to make sure to get the pastry you want, it is best to order... More

This place is always packed with people, and that tells you the food is good. The most popular are the potato ball, cheese roll, and guava roll. I also tried the dulce de leche individual cake on my last visit. You can't beat the price and quality of food here.

Portos quality and service are 2 things you can count on. The food, pastries and cakes are all delicious! A few of my favorites are the chicken sandwich with plantain chips, chicken croquettes and empanadas and the Tres Leches cake. I've had numerous other items as well and all of them are tasty. Even though the lines are usually long,... More

Judging by the lines, this place is a journey for a lot of folks...came here on the way back from LAX, I've missed working in the city for awhile, so the trip back here was cool because P's opened up. Grabbed pastries for the familia and a sandwich for lunch too. Like any trip here, make time to park and... More

Everything I've tried at this place, I haven't been disappointed. From the guava pastry to the sandwich cubano has been excellent.

Porto's and the food are overrated. The food was average as were the drinks. Service was standard and the place is over crowded.

The pastries are abundant and delicious! They also serve an array of sandwiches all of the ones I've tried are always delicious. Also if your here... More

I wish I could have gotten pictures of what we got but they were gone in a flash! This bakery has the best Apple Tarts and my mom loves loves their chocolate chip cookies! They also have soups, sandwiches, cakes, breads, muffins, potato balls and so much more! This place is so amazing! I wish they had one closer to... More
