Wake Up LA: Porto's Bakery

I fell in love with Porto's Bakery long before I ever actually visited one of their Glendale or Burbank bakeries -- they've always been our go-to place for catered meals at work. It only took one bite of one of their famous potato balls to convince me that this was a place I HAD to visit.

But even though I drive by the Burbank location almost every weekend on my way to Costco or Best Buy, I've always been hesitant to actually try out one of their breakfasts. The place always looks packed with brunching locals, and there's nothing I hate more than waiting in lines and fighting over tables.

I finally screwed my courage to the sticking point, though, and I'm happy to say that this weekend I became one of the hordes of happy locals feasting on delicious, cheap, and filling Cuban specialties. Porto's is definitely the kind of place where you want to spend your morning.
