Simply the best cakes and fruit tarts. Portos has so much to offer, but I always go there for cakes & fruit tarts and have never been disappointed. They are always full to the max and it seems that you will not ever get into the bakery, however they are so organized that even in the worst day "if you're... More

I got there around 630 and it took close to an hour to get my stuff. My wife had food from here before and mentioned she liked it so I thought I would surprise her with the potato balls. I would not generally wait an hour, but I was here. The potato balls were excellent. I had a similar version... More

Portos has fresh baked goods and cakes, and very reasonably priced so you can try a variety of items in a single visit. I promise that you will be back!

Being from Arizona, I had always heard of Porto's from my friends who have been there and posted pictures....so, when I went to visit family last week in Downey I had to go to Porto's! When we arrived there was a line out the door and I was afraid it would take forever to get some food. The line moves... More

This is a cafe and Bakery you order take out or order and they bring your food to you. Excellent food long lines at least 70+ people there today but the lines do move fast. So order food on line for take out to avoid long lines. Parking is behind the building in a parking (you need to pay) or... More

Found this place after seeing people at the airport carrying multiple packages...and had to ask. Forgot to post our first visit last yr, but had to be sure not to do that this time. We went in the middle of the day on Friday this time, so the line we stood in wasn't out the door. The parking is limited,... More

Long lines but they move quickly. Well worth any wait. Now that we have been here we will be back. Even if you have to drive... More

I simply can not make a trip from Ohio to SoCal without having at least 1 meal at Portis! I haven't had anything I didn't like. They have a wide variety of items to choose from and their bakery is spectacular! Be prepared to wait in line.. but it's worth it!
