Porto's Bakery & Cafe



Porto Bakery on North Brand Boulevard in Glendale. It can be a bit confusing at first since there are several lines snaking all around the place with two sides - the 'bakery' and the 'cafe'. (there is no difference other than the name). The place was jammed but according to some locals, the lines are usually out the door. After waiting for 10-15 minutes i reached the counter and ordered a potato ball, meat pie, chorizo pie (pies were more like empanadas) and a machaca wrap. Finished with a sweet guava cheese pastry. Several visits (or at least a large group) are needed to taste the extensive menu.
