Even though the Porto’s in Glendale is technically its second location, this legendary Cuban bakery has been in the neighborhood for over 30 years and is every bit as much of an institution as the original in Burbank. Expect the same great guava pastries, Cubano sandwiches, and long lines at pretty much any point in the day. Good news - this place is a well-oiled machine and wait times somehow never go over 15 minutes. If you’re in Glendale for even an hour, a visit is mandatory.
