Guava Strudel—Sweet guava jam is enrobed in puff pastry in this sweet breakfast pastry that goes well with the house-brewed coffee.

Chocolate Croissant—This classic sweet breakfast pastry gets an upgrade with two chocolate batons inside and chocolate dipping on each end. A chocolate lover's dream!

Mango Mousse Cake—If you need a dessert to impress, this one's for you. Rosa's original sponge cake is lightly soaked with passion fruit, layered with Porto's signature mango mousse, finished with a mango glaze, and topped with fresh fruit.

Cubano sandwich at Porto's in Buena Park, CA

Cubano—This is the sandwich that Porto's is known for! Slow-roasted pork and ham are layered with Swiss cheese, pickles, and Cuban dressing inside a Cuban roll that is pressed nice and thin. The perfect bite!

Medianoche—Dubbed the "midnight sandwich," this cousin of the Cubano takes the same fillings and stuffs them inside the sweeter, softer Medianoche roll for a slightly different bite. Which one will be your favorite?

Fresh fruit tart at Porto's in Buena Park, CA

Chicken Empanada—This traditional Cuban hand pie is filled with Cuban-style chicken fricassee—a mix of shredded chicken breast, carrots, peas, onions, tomato sauce, and Spanish seasonings.

Fresh Fruit Tart—This sweet dessert option really highlights the seasonal fruit like strawberries and blueberries that this area is known for. A short dough crust is filled with vanilla cream and topped with an array of fresh fruit and an apricot glaze. It's almost too pretty to eat!

Plantain chip at Porto's in Buena Park, CA

Marquitas—These toasted plantain chips are the perfect accompaniment to your Cubano or Medianoche. They are thinly sliced, fried, and dusted with garlic salt. They come with a side of mojo (Cuban garlic sauce) for dipping. Make sure you get enough to share as they are addictively delicious!

Ropa Vieja Plato—Bring your appetite for this meal that offers so many tastes of Cuba. Cuban-style stewed beef with onions, bell peppers, and olives is served with rice and Cuban-style black beans. It also comes with everyone's favorite, maduros (a sweet, fried plantain).

Tres Leches Cake—This gorgeous cake is pristinely white as whipped cream covers the layers of delicate sponge cake that have been soaked in traditional tres leches (a combination of condensed milk, evaporated milk, cream, and a touch of brandy).
