This place has it all ! Savory pastries and great food. The ambiance is unbelievably relaxing. They serve your food right away and even with the long lines they help the guests pretty quick.

Porto's Fruit Tarts are ideal to take to Family and Friends, or Co-workers. Everyone loves them, and their yes pop open wide when they see the colorful fruit. The lines are long during holidays, but the experience is good, and the lines do move quickly....More

The bakery is fresh and tasty. Great variety and it was very evident that it was recently made. Great place for a morning sugar fix

Popular local Cuban concept bakery offering wide selection of pastries and desserts. Sandwiches, cakes and coffee drinks are also very good. Reasonable prices and that is why you see people with large bags of baked goods at Portos. Line can be long at times but...More

I can't enough of Porto's and happened to be in Downey today. The restaurant was jammed at Noon for lunch but they move people through quite rapidly! Their potato balls are to die for and the Cuban sandwich is the best! AWESOME FOOD HERE!

This is the place where you can taste "heaven." For a pastry lover like me, I can survive just by eating all of Portos can offer. The place is classy as it is. You can definitely bring friends around. The only drwback here is the...More
