In our whole wedding planning process, the cake selection was probably the part we were most excited about - and shockingly, the easiest decision for us. We tried a couple different bakeries, but as huge Porto's fans, we should have known that ...
we didn't really need to waste the calories! :) COVID should have added an extra layer of complexity but to be honest, everything was so easy with the Porto's team (thank you, Juana!). I scheduled a pick up of the cake sampler from Glendale (which was free! not the case for most other bakeries.), and everything else was done via email or phone. Super simple. All of the cake flavors were absolutely delicious...just Porto's living up to their reputation, I guess. Ultimately we chose the Cuban Pineapple (runner up was the Strawberry Marscapone), and our wedding guests were raving about it! As far as cake designs, there are a set number of styles to choose from - with no customization - so if your heart is set on something unique and special, this is not the place for you. We were just wanting a simple two-tier plain white frosted cake + a kitchen sheet cake, and had our florist add some flowers on the day of, and it ended up looking gorgeous and was way more affordable than all of the other bakeries. HIGHLY recommend!

ough the Glendale location. The door can be tricky to find, there is a door at the end of the patio seating that leads directly upstairs where they have their cake gallery. In addition to tasting and picking your cake options, you can also see the other accessories available for purchase.
At our tasting, we were given 7 samples to try. There was enough in each sample for each of us to have about 2 small bites. We tried red velvet, chocolate with strawberry filling, chocolate with chocolate filling, vanilla with strawberry, vanilla with vanilla, I think a mocha or coffee flavor and their traditional Cuban. We were impressed with all the cakes. None were too dry or overly sweet. In the end, we decided to go with the traditional Cuban cake with vanilla and pineapple custard filling and a vanilla frosting. Even my husband who is a die-hard chocolate cake fan and was skeptical of a cake with pineapple loved the Cuban cake.
After picking our flavor choices, we were shown a photo book with all their cake decorating styles. We got to pick the cake shape and what frosting design we wanted. We picked very simple and traditional styles. Based on our guest count, Porto's determined how many tiers and what size they would be. We decided to have our florist add flowers rather than have Porto's add them so that all our flowers would match.
Porto's delivered our cake to the venue on time and without incident. We opted to not purchase or rent a fancy cake stand. The cake was delivered on a white board that looked very nice on our cake table. The cake was absolutely delicious. All of our guests enjoyed it immensely. We had a little bit leftover the next day and it tasted just as good! Thank you, Porto's!

We prepaid for the cake and had the cake and desserts picked up (because the delivery price wouldn't have been worth it for us) by a friend.

e seated at a meeting table and brought plates of an assortment of different cakes and fillings. We ended up choosing the Cuban cake with guava and vanilla custard filling - SO delicious!!! Just thinking about it is making my mouth water! They also provide you with a book of cake designs to look through, but we already had a design in mind and had emailed it to them ahead of time. However, we found out that they actually wanted us to bring in a color print of the cake design ourselves, because they didn't have a color printer. We thought that was a bit strange that such a huge, successful business didn't have a color printer, but it was fine - we ended up just printing a picture from a friend's color printer and mailed it to them.
In addition to the wedding cake, I also ordered a surprise birthday cake for my husband since his birthday was a few days after our wedding. I figured it would be the most convenient way to get another cake since they could just deliver both cakes together. It ended up being a little more of a hassle than first expected because I learned that they don't take credit card payments over the phone or mailed personal checks for payment! I either had to go all the way to Glendale to pay in person or mail a money order for them to accept the payment! Definitely not the most convenient way to do business, especially for out of town customers.
In the end, our wedding cake came out absolutely beautiful! The very light pink ombre gradient was perfection and it looked exactly like how I imagined it would! The birthday cake (pina colada flavored) was also beautifully done and so tasty!

We've loved Porto's for a while, but the things that really got us over the moon about them were their wedding cake customer service and execution, catering, and delivery. They are awesome!
They treated us wonderfully up on the second floor ...
when we came to try their cakes. They gave us a price that was nearly half of what we expected.
When it came time for the wedding, it was delivered in perfect condition on time. And it made the whole room smell like heaven!
Even the food snobs at our wedding loved it! Best wedding cake ever!
For brunch on the day after our wedding, we ordered several platters of breakfast treats to be delivered. It was once again cheaper than we expected, more delicious, and easier than we could have hoped for!
Porto's is amazing! Affordable, efficient, and wonderfully delicious! Hard to believe, but it's perfect!

If you are getting married in or around Los Angeles look no further. There is a reason this place has been in business for over 50 years and is consistently busy every time you go in there.
Their cakes taste better and cost less than any other bakery I found. The customer service is excellent. It was one of the easiest vendor decisions I made. There was no question about it- I was ordering from them. I was extremely happy with the presentation, design, and taste of my cake. I will continue to order every cake I need from them. I ordered my wedding shower and birthday cake from them the past two years. And every time you go in there you can have a tasty lunch-as they are a restaurant as well.

We really liked our wedding cake from Porto's! It was a simple yet elegant design that we had picked out: 3-tiered round cake with Porto's delicious red velvet on the top and bottom layers, and a white cake with mango in the middle layer. We ...
got to try both flavors on the wedding night. And oh my goodness the cake tasted so yummy, moist and very fresh! The cream frosting was light and not too sweet. Plus it was a light ivory color, to match my wedding gown. These details make a difference!
I am unable to give input or feedback as to the cost and value of the cake. The cake came as a package with our venue/caterer at Calamigos Equestrian. Porto's is the exclusive bakery for that venue.
The only minor complaints we have (and hence 1 less star rating) are that:
(1) the red ribbons we had selected for our cake turned out different on the day of; we had selected a red satin style but the cake ended up having iridescent/shiny plastic ribbons on it; it was still pretty in the end, but just not what we had requested.
(2) fondant was not part of our cake package with the venue, and thus would have been extra charge; same goes for flowers on the cake (but we ended up having those put on my our AMAZING florist Kerim from My Wedding Blooms).
(3) during our cake tasting and design appointment in Glendale, the people there were not as helpful or friendly as they should have been; one lady was borderline rude when we tried to move a chair over to our appointment desk, since my MOH was joining us; the woman who helped us design the cake was not very enthusiastic nor super helpful; in fact, she supposedly set aside the red satin ribbons we selected but (from my comments above) the ribbons turned out to be different and a bit cheaper looking.
Overall, we loved the look, taste and quality of our cake. We can't wait to have our top-tier (red velvet of course) at our 1-year anniversary!

y on the morning of the wedding, Portos called to ask if I wanted them to add some flowers to the cake.? Huh? The caked I pointed at, had flowers running up and down the cake. The flowers they put on my cake were plastic and I didn't think they matched the theme of my wedding. So I was a little disappointed in that respect. I also had left over crystals that I asked them to return to me any unused portion because I know I gave them way over what they needed, but I never got them back. However, even though I never got to eat any cake on the day of my wedding....my husband and I had a piece the other day (our Anniversary piece) and it was (even still 6 months + later) FABULOUS....just like all our guests said!

tion is quite small and several cakes which have fondant ribbons or fresh flowers are extra. Since I am a budget bride of course I did not select one of these cakes, but one which was a bit old fashion but pretty overall. We got a small slice of 6 flavors and opted for the chocolate cake. The person who helped us, Gloria, was great, nice, and very professional.
After the tasting we went to get some baked goods and cakes to take home. The lines were quite long but the place is well run and there are tons of people taking orders. Everyone there is great and professional. One can see why this place is so popular. Its also quite inexpensive and their desserts are just beautiful!
