Porto's Bakery is one of my favorite bakeries in LA. Luckily, there's a location right in beautiful downtown Burbank. Upon entering the bakery, you will be greeted by organized chaos. But don't fret; long lines move pretty quickly and everyone is so friendly that your grouchy mood fades fairly quickly. Plus, everything is affordable! Porto's, you brighten up my day. Let it brighten up yours.
