Been coming here since the 80's when they were just a small hole in the wall on Brand boulevard. The staff has always been friendly and the food is just incredible. There are always long lines so I try to go either really early or not during the lunch hour. The long lines are because the food is good and... More

The Cakes, pastries and potato balls... Everything they make here is wonderful and very good. The only down side is that everyone else knows! I almost gave 4 stars because of the wait time, but changed my mind, since their food is worth the wait. The cake is decorated beautifully with amazing detail for the number of orders they handle!...

These rolls are out of this world. They melt in you mouth be careful not to eat to many. You can pre order the appetizer size rolls. There are 25 in a box. That way you go to the pick up line

I ordered several different items- all good but the potato balls Papas rellanas are wonderful. I tried the ones that stuffed with a seasoned ground beef. I liked them well enough that I ordered a dozen to bring home. We ate them as appetizers for Thanksgiving! I ordered several cakes and found them moist, and flavorful. I tried Cuban food... More

I was so excited to try their savory pastries that I didn't mind the wait. My understanding is that all locations have lines out the door and this held true on my visit today. I decided to try the potato balls, the potato/pepper balls, meat pies, spinach/ feta croissant and the Cuban sandwich. This was completely delightful!!! I was impressed... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Portos Cafe and Bakery. What an awesome location. the place was packed, but yet the lines went fast. They had plenty of service staff. i had the Cuban Medianoche sandwich-Slices of slow roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, Cuban dressing on a sweet roll. Delicious! choclate eclair, guava strudel and a guave cheese strudel... More

I love Porto's -- who doesn't? But be prepared to wait. Always a crowd, so not so great when you are in hurry. Use the time waiting trying to decide what to get, because so there is so much to choose from. I have many favorites. I love the potato and ground beef croquettes always go quick at any party....
