Osvaldo Lourenco, owner of the Hanford Portuguese Bakery, right, talks with Brenda and Frank Correio, who are passing through Hanford on their way back to their home on the coast Tuesday. They have been to Portugal several times, and bought some Portuguese canned and baked goods from the bakery. 

Eager customers enter the Hanford Portuguese Bakery every morning looking for the establishment's famous sweet breads, the same as they've been doing for more than two decades.
