The parking is terrible. The lines are ridiculously long. The service is not bad considering how busy they are. The lunch menu is...meh!! The prices are very affordable. Having said all that, the food is simply amazing! The "potato balls" are simply amazing!!The pastries are simply out-of-this world! Enough said.

Technically OC but still far located near Knotts Berry Park. They opened a month ago and still have long lines at 8am. Great baked Cuban pastries and a wide variety of sandwiches. Definitely worth the ride from South OC. Expect long but fast moving lines.

Typical long lines, but food never disappoints. Always consistent from store to store, this place will surely be flocked by the tourists visiting Buena Park area

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!
