We visit Porto's every time we visit our family in Glendale. No matter what time, there are lines, but well worth the wait. Everything is delicious and difficult to choose when it all looks and smells so good! I wish they had more tables.

We go here whenever we want to get something special for an event or to pick up something nice for someone we care about. The guava cheese pastries are to die for!!! Also the ham and cheese croquettes are fantastic. The lines are long, but they go quick and the service is excellent!

Be prepared to stand in a long line. And best to buy dozens, because it's really good . The Cheese Rolls are really good. We bought 8 boxes.

I mean super busy and you have to feed the meter out front. They had probably 7 different lines; special ordered cakes,baked goods, hot breakfast sandwiches, coffees, expressos, smoothies. They work really hard and fast with a smile on their faces. There is a line before the doors open and it's packed all day and evening. The food and drinks... More

My brother-in-law recommended that we go to Portos for a variety of affordable Latin American food, and we weren't disappointed. I particularly like the guava turnover. We got dinner there, and it was very reasonably priced, and came to our table quickly. It would be great for a couple Or families.

Had breakfast here, our hotel was a couple minutes away. Great pies and tarts. Sometimes it gets really crowded and long lines form.

My favorite is the triple chocolate mousse cake...So rich... So good. Everything is really good here.. They use the best ingredients...No cost saving substitutes! All calories gained are worth it! A must visit!

We went multiple times at all of their 3 locations. Service was excellent. Food was fresh. It was an experience. Lines were long but we were served withing minutes so no big deal. Cuban Sandwiches, Pastries, and flaky croissants were all fresh baked and freshly squeezed Orange Juice. It was a fabulous experience.

This is all people talk about when visiting LA. PORTO'S!!! Always a line out the door and that is true! Luckily we stayed in a hotel within walking distance & found the best time to visit is near opening time, 6:30am. We went at 7am & was great! We tried the chorizo omelette over bread and hubs said it was... More
