Beloved local bakery chain Porto's has launched a delivery service, so you can order their famous cheese rolls, potato balls and guava and cheese pastries sent to your home. But when the goodies arrive, they won't be ready to eat.

The Bake at Home service, which launched today, lets you order various items that will be shipped frozen. When you receive them, you'll have to pop them in an oven, which will take about 30 minutes.

For the laziest among us who demand meat pies and dulce de leche besito cookies delivered directly to our mouths, or at least our desks, that's not ideal. But if you can't make it to one of Porto's four locations -- in Glendale, Burbank, Downey or Buena Park -- it's a great option.

You can currently order guava strudel, guava and cheese pastries, cheese rolls, dulce de leche besito cookies and meat pies via this option. The items are all sold in quantities of a dozen except for the besito cookies (which have 15 pieces) and cost $16.99. You must choose at least two items per order. Shipping costs $9 to $10.
