If you’re looking for a hidden gem, Porto’s is not it. This place is well-known, large and spacious, and there is always a line leading up to their bakery counter, where you can place your order for their displayed cakes and pastries, or their coffees and sandwiches.
While it is always busy here, most people order boxes of the delicious Cuban pastry goodies to-go, and it is not too difficult to find a table. This isn’t your average cozy and quiet coffee shop, but it is a place to enjoy a good cup of coffee and some of the best pastries in the city to go along with it.
Horchata latte, cheese rolls, and dulce de leche kisses were absolutely delicious.
My average waiting-in-line time is 20 minutes, and the parking situation is decent with a paid parking lot in the back and some metered parking in front (Glendale location).
