Another Late Lunch

I did it again. I went to Porto's Bakery for the second time this week. I couldn't help it. I really can't. I love the place way WAY too much. Wouldn't you go back to a place, if you really loved the food?

A little view of the cafe area. The bests times to go are between 9-11am and 2-4pm. Those are, I think, the semi-lull hours. Though, I wouldn't really call it a lull point.

My mom orders the Feta. This has feta cheese, fresh basil, vine ripened tomatoes,  olive oil, Italian dressing, red onions on a baguette. Served with some mariquitas.  A little reminiscent of the 

This time I ordered the Cubano. (Cuban Sandwich) Slow roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, butter, may and mustard, pickels on Cuban bread. This is a little similar to the Medianoche sandwich my mom had a couple days ago except that the bread is different. Served with some FRESH mariquitas. I say fresh because I saw them bring out a fresh batch. Plus, you know it's a fresh batch when you see a little of that oil still slightly on the surface. Yum!!!

Just to show you how packed the place gets -- here's a pic from their bakery area. The first pic on top was from their cafe area. This is before the end of day rush hour crowd.

Multiply that by two and that's how crowded it can get during peak hours.

If the place is that crowded, then they must serve really good food..

have you been to the one in Burbank? It's really crowded as well, but probably not AS much as Glendale.

Of course I would go back to a place if I loved the food - again and again! :)

If I lived closer I would definitely check it out! I love bakeries. The sandwiches look great. Wonderful bread!

Delicious sammies! I would order the Feta!

Those are some mighty fine sandwiches! I would have a hard time staying away from this place too! ;)

That Cubano looks amazing! Look at those layers!

Phyllis said...

Yes, I will go back to a place again and again until I get it out of my system! Both sandwiches look yummy but I would go for the feta!

I have been wanting to try Porto's for a long time. Your cuban sandwich confirms it. I need to go.
