There is a reason that Porto\s always has long lines waiting for service! It is without a doubt the best bakery in town. Not only is the selection huge, but the items are delectable and the prices are fair. It can't be beat. They also serve terrific Cuban sandwiches, if you're in the mood for a sandwich. And if you haven't had a Cuban sandwich, then you must try one. They are different and also delectable. Of course, you will always have the crowds. And everyone in line has a smile visualizing their choices! Can you blame them?

This is supposed to be a terrific place, but my two visits were awful. I didn't get what I thought I was ordering. The tables needed cleaning up. You place your order in a line, then get in another line to pick up what you ordered. The lines were long for self service and what kind of a bakery doesn't have a lot of chocolate choices for customers? I was told later that you have to tell them exactly what you want on sandwiches, etc. or you get just the basics on sandwiches and salads. I didn't like the lines, but then I don't like Starbucks either.

This is the quintessential, engaging Cuban bakery/espresso experience, lively and busy, all at an extremely modest cost. On the restaurant side, have a Cubano sandwich with fried garlic plantians and a double espresso - a perfect lunch perfect. Add a few meat pies or potato balls, then guava pastries and incomparable, unassumingly-named "cheese rolls" (the perfect pastry), even more perfect. The bakery side in Glendale offers exquisitely-presented pies, tarts, pastries, cookies, cakes, breads. It seems to be Glendale's center for special-order family birthday cakes. Unless you arrive very early, there will be some wait, but not to be missed.

OMG! If I could I would eat it all. Trust me you must visit Porto's. It is a Cuban bakery and Cafe and everything is delicious! EVERYTHING. Here are some of my recommendations: Hot Pastraimi Sandwich (served with plantain chips), the guava and cream pastry, the coconut pastry, the mango drink, any cake, the list really is endless.

It is a great place to go for breakfast, lunch, or meet for coffee and dessert.

You will not regret going.
