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

We are staying near by and I looked this place up on TripAdvisor. WOW it is amazing food. Really fresh and so yummy. The selection is incredible and the place is buzzing with people. 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!

Delicioso! A must in L. A. Everything from pastries to cakes, breakfast sandwiches, coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, you can not go wrong. Place is always packed and you might have to wait outside for a few minutes before you are allowed to enter. It's all worth it! 😉

This place has really good pastries as well as lunch. Our family usually stops here on the way back to the Bay Area. The line can be really long at times but worth the wait. We really like anything they have with guava in it so our goto is the guava and cheese pastries but now you can pre order... More

Great place to pick up lunch. Everything is good. I especially like the chicken sandwich, potato balls, and everything in the bakery. The lines are long but worth the wait. I have never eaten there but have always taken out
