Stopped in Stack's based on the reviews. It is a takeout counter deli style breakfast joint, and it is good. It's not fancy but they don't need to be. All the breakfasts ordered were good. I had the Korean BBQ rib breakfast that was great. The big hit is the banana macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup. Just exceptional. I... More

Food was good, menu was creative. Unfortunately, when we went on a weekday morning around 10 am it was very crowded, so indoor seating was a bit of a problem. It was our first time here, so we were surprised that we had to place our order at the register then find a seat, rather that it being a little... More

We tried the spicy chicken and bacon waffle, breakfast burrito, Captain Crunch french toast, omelettes and smoothies -- all so freshly prepared and just delicious!! Surprisingly, the pancakes are not the highlight on their menu, despite the name. Staff is friendly and efficient, and the lines are a constant, but move quickly. We really enjoyed our breakfasts here and would... More

We hit the jackpot when we found this place! The staff could not have been nicer. There were 8 in our party. We wanted to sit out front. The staff was more than happy to help us rearrange the tables so we could sit together. We've had eggs benedict from all over the world. Stacks' California egg benedict is by... More

On my last carb filled vacation day I couldn't pass up a trip to Stacks. I had a banana macadamia nut pancake and a coconut pineapple one--served with maple or coconut syrup. That breakfast was seriously WORTH the carbs! My husband had the California omelet and loved it. Small space for eating, but there is also seating outside if the... More

We didn't quite realize how terrific this little gem was. It's in a little strip mall right on the PCH. The service is cheerful no matter how busy. We're here on vacation and have come every morning now for four days. The capuccino is the best I've had since I was in Rome this summer, and that's saying something! Great... More

Stacks is really good. We each had something different and loved it all. This is a no frills place but really good. We were lucky enough to sit outside for breakfast.
