Among the finest issues to do in Buena Park is to bask in sweets and savories at Porto’s Bakery

I don’t assume I’ve ever been in a bakery as huge or busy as this iconic native Cuban bakery. It’s like a big meals corridor all to itself with an abundance of Cuban pastries, savories, scrumptious muffins, and home made bread.

There may be additionally a espresso bar if you happen to simply wish to seize and go (or eat in).
