Our first morning in LA was spent having too many pastries from Portos. We couldn't decide! I asked the waiter what he would recommend and he really helped us out. We ordered twice! Don't be worried about the lines. They go fast and it's totally worth it!

I'm reluctant to say how good this bakery is because the lines are long enough! But, worth the wait. Both the sweet and savory treats are excellent. Fresh and beautiful and the staff is also remarkably fast and efficient.

The potato balls are good. The cheese rolls/bread is addicting. You can not just have one. The pastries are good too. Parking can be tough.

Portos has delicious and low cost pastries, cakes and food. It gets packed, so don't be that annoying person who complains about the line. This place is always full, but well worth the wait. Be prepared to order and keep it moving! Been coming here since I was a kid and still love it!

Being GF I could not eat here, however, my husband loved them. I was truly wishing if could have sampled. They looked amazing and were even beautiful to look at.

As always the food was good but the restaurant is popular thus, always crowded. Tends to be loud with customer exuberance and finding a table is not always easy. We have found that most of the customers are very accommodating and helpful and thus, the atmosphere is comfortable, congenial and pleasant.

Cuban style bakery, large, clean and very well organized. Staff was very nice. The food was delicious. We had tamales, cuban sandwich, medianoche, coffee, chorizo omelet sandwich and ham croquettes. I highly recommend it!

The line is long, but may be the wait .The price is fair in certain items. The cookies a delicious , and pineapple pastry . Not to sweet. The turkey sandwich is ok reasonable price. The carrot bran muffin is moist and not dry good buy.

Porto's is our national treasure. Excellent pastries and efficient service at a reasonable price. The Cuban dinners can't be beat. The only drawback is the wait because is so popular. But worth waiting for.

Porto's Bakery & Café has been in Glendale for many years. This is a no frills Cuban style restaurant and it's good.

Thank Bob P
