What's good for Glendale is now good for Burbank: Porto's, the landmark Cuban bakery and restaurant, has finally opened its second location. The Daily News was there:
After serving up Cuban-style baked goods and tasty sandwiches for years in Glendale, Porto's Bakery opened its Burbank store Monday to throngs of fans.
More than 100 people lined the sidewalk in front of the popular eatery at Hollywood Way and Magnolia Boulevard in the heart of the city's Magnolia Park area, eager for the doors to open.
"After years of work, we finally come this morning to welcome the Porto family, embrace them and wish them the best," Burbank Mayor Jef Vander Borght said during a ribbon-cutting ceremony. "All of us have invested countless years trying to find the right mixture of the right tenant and right uses for the area. We couldn't have found a better use than Porto's."
Once you've had Porto's Tres Leches cake (Yellow sponge cake soaked with three-milk sauce - condensed milk, evaporated milk, and whipping cream - and finished with meringue icing), no other cake will ever make do again.
