This place is a 'go to' in LA. Great pastries. Try the meat pies! One of the tastiest things you can eat. The bakery is top notch LA. One of the best if not the best!

my first intro to Porto’s. My favorite - potatoes meat bawls and cheese- guava pastry. They are always crowded and always a line of people. The bakery runs like a well oiled machine. The cakes look decadent.

Went here to pick up dessert platter for a party. VERY busy but lines generally move fast. Long lines upon entering, long lines upon exiting but worth the wait. Dessert was delicious.
