Stopped here while visiting with family who live in Pasadena area. What a vast selection of baked goods! Line was out the door and we quickly found out why. The pastries are delicious and reasonably priced. Service was quick and eating area was clean. Highly recommended.

They have yummy pasties!!! The sweet croissants (they are actually called sweet croissants), Apple turnovers, meat pies, coffee, and mango smoothie were all delicious! The food is worth the wait! It was also very affordable!

I do believe that everyone's taste is different, and there are probably some that would rate Porto's as an average bakery. But for my money, it is awwwwsome and I love it. I have had several different foods there and have enjoyed everyone of them. I will say that they recently changed the recipe for their brownies and honestly ...... More

If you're a foodie, you definitely want to come here for the experience. If you want fresh bread, pastries (plural), a party dessert, etc, again, you definitely want to come here. If you're just out for a stroll and want a snack, you might want to come here, depending on the time of day and length of the line. There... More

Came here for takeout on a Saturday afternoon before heading back to Vegas. The line was almost out of the door but it moves quickly. We ordered loaf breads, potatoes balls, empanadas, muffins, Danish... The lady behind the counter was listening to my order instead of taking down like the other staff do. I didn't doubted her... She wondered to... More

I ordered their famous guava and cheese rolls, along with a ropa vieja sandwich. The rolls were to die for! I wish that I had ordered more than what I did, considering I stood in line well over 30 minutes. Next time I'll have a list of all the things I need to take with me!

Porto's has an excellent bakery. They make wonderful desserts and sandwiches. This location is fairly large, and be sure to pay attention to which line you are in. (There is a line only for full-size cakes, for example.) My favorite treats are the dulce de leche kisses, cheese rolls, and cupcakes. The vanilla cupcake is nothing fancy but simple and... More
