However, because of its great tasting pastries and food, the lines at Porto's are always endless, but don't get put off----- the pastries alone are worth the wait.
Their cakes and pastries have attractive artsy presentation. Great colors and details !! Sometimes it looked too pretty to eat ! According to my friend, here are some of the cakes you MUST TRY...
PARISIAN CHOCOLATE CAKE - it is devil's food chocolate cake which is layered and decorated with chocolate whipped cream and finished with chocolate shavings,.......
CUBAN CAKE - it is a yellow sponge cake soaked in brandy syrup. There are 2 kinds of fillings you can choose from --- a custard filling or a pineapple flavored custard filling. Topped with meringue.
CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY MOUSSE - it has a layer of rich chocolate-fudge cake, white sponge cake and raspberry mousse. the topping is decorated with an assortment of fresh fruits.
CHOCOLATE GRAND MARNIER MOUSSE - it has thin layers of chocolate mousse and chiffon cake soaked in Grand Marnier syrup and a touch of orange marmalade. It has Belgian chocolate shavings on top
There are several lines to wait in, depending on what you are there for. There is a cake line, beverage line, pastry line and a food line. Everything in the menu is D-E-L-C-I-O-U-S !!
Here are some of the other stuff being offered at Porto's:
and the famous POTATO BALLS.... which everyone raves about!!
The place is simply awesome!!! what a gem !! The variety of cakes will make your head spin! Their prices are reasonable. This place is no secret for people living in the valley or in Los Angeles.. so be prepared to see long lines at lunchtime and on weekends. The lines may be very long but it moves very quickly. There are at least a dozen efficient and friendly staff working behind the counter ( no matter what day or time you come ) --- to help you out with your orders.
I love FOOD and I especially love SWEETS !! This place has a wide selection of sweets and if you ever need a cake for any occassion. If you want something different and something to satisfy your comfort zone..... go to PORTO's .... I highly recommend this place!!!! Great pastries, sandwiches and cakes !!! Why not try it out for yourself !!
I'd like to say " THANK YOU " to my classmates who introduced PORTO'S Bakery & Cafe to me.. I loved the cheese rolls and the potato balls!! I will try out their " media noche " sandwiches the next time I visit PORTO'S.
