“Long Lines but Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you're ever in the neighborhood make to stop by Porto's Bakery. I guarantee you that when and if you stop by, it will NEVER be slow and you wont have any regrets. This place is always packed to the bone. The food and pastries are just exquisite My only complain is that because this place always packed, there's no organization so it can get chaotic. That said, it's still damn worth the trip!

Don't forget to try their mariquitas (plantain chips).

“Delicious Cuban food and pasteries in Burbank”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Who doesn't love Porto's? It has the best Cuban desserts and tasty food. I love the chicken dinner plate and all of their desserts. We order birthday and holiday cakes from Porto's only. Everything is reasonably priced. Delicious coffee too! Better than Starbucks and at better prices. I highly recommend.

“Great food and value, chaotic atmosphere and big lines”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Customer service is usually poor or ok and because it is popular, affordable, and a value, it can be a while before you order. Most people flock here like madmen, so don't expect the most courteous customers.

Other than that, quality and value is excellent. Their coffees are awesome, and at their Downey location, the horchata latte is recommended.

“So many great things to choose from!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

When you walk in, you'll see a line...but don't leave... The line moves very quickly, and they're super efficient. It's usually very loud, but it's all worth it. The pastries and sandwiches are all amazing. And make sure you try the potato balls!

“Yum yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We walked over for breakfast after Mass on Sunday. Nine of us, all dressed up and the place could not have been more friendly to us. We were seated out front on the sidewalk, where we spotted Jay Leno and his old car and other colorful local characters. Food was wonderful. The people watching was even better. What a warm and friendly place to spend a quiet morning.
