So after my honeymoon on Kauai, and several delicious breakfasts there, I was hell bent on finding something remotely close back here on the mainland. I had looked far and wide, inside So Cal that is, and came up short. Some places had this, some had that, but none had this and that. Then I found Stack's. The food is... More

It was surprising to see such a large menu selection. This made it difficult to decide what to eat. The food was good and the price was very reasonable. We will return.

My kids and I dropped in for breakfast during the weekday since they had the day off of school. Several people had recommended this place for breakfast and described it to me as..."the line is always out the door" on the weekends. Small restaurant with maybe 20 tables, and there was a very short line today. The kids shared a... More

I love breakfast. I love pancakes. Whenever I go to a new "breakfast restaurant" I have to get the joint's pancakes. If the pancakes are good then the rest of the menu must be good, right? When I found Stack's online and read the reviews I new I had to make a detour, and Stack's did not disappoint. The restaurant... More

You have to get the pancakes - after all, it IS called Stacks! They are wonderful! This southern girl was super satisfied with these California buttermilk pancakes. The waitress recommended topping them with the coconut syrup and it was spot on! The omelets are delicious - perfectly yummy! We sat outside and enjoyed the city sounds and people watching. Inside...

Pancakes that are amazing! And also very filling. I got a short stack (three pancakes) and could only finish one. That said it was very good. It's clearly a popular place and I can see why. 100% worth a visit.

I visited Stacks Pancake House last Saturday. It looked like a place where locals go for breakfast. I had the California Benedict which was excellent. It was similar to a regular Eggs Benedict but without the meat and with tomatoes and sliced avocados. My only regret is that I don't live close enough to go there weekly. Also, the pancakes... More
