We can already taste the pastelitos de guava and cheese rolls ahead of the official Downtown Disney opening of the new Porto’s Bakery & Café but we got a crumb of news today about the upcoming new dining location.

The Downtown Disney La Brea Bakery — which closed permanently this week — will become the new permanent home of the upcoming Porto’s Bakery & Café. Plans are underway to design and construct an all-new Porto’s location near the Esplanade on the footprint of the La Brea Bakery location.

It was also confirmed today that, for now, the shuttered La Brea Bakery will become the temporary home for both a grab-and-go and table service version of Earl of Sandwich. Following it’s temporary run in the former La Brea Bakery, the Earl of Sandwich restaurant will have a new location in Downtown Disney at a later date.

See it for Yourself

Porto’s Bakery & Café at Downtown Disney does not currently have an opening date. The Earl of Sandwich grab-and-go location and the Earl of Sandwich Tavern table service location are both set to open temporarily in this space from February 2022.
