Delicious!

Great little breakfast place in Dana Point. When we got there, the line was out the door, but the hostess did a great job of finding us a table after we ordered. I would definitely recommend this place!

Fun place to eat. Indoor outdoor seating.Outdoor is the best...huge selections on the menu,service with a smile & consistent good food that is reasonably priced. Not fancy but clean & simple. Fun for everyone especially family & big groups. Great local friendly place to meet people. Location is walking distance from Dana Point Harbor & other beaches. Lots of fun... More

If you like breakfast food, then this is your place. Personally, I love traditional Eggs Benedict, and this is my number one place for it. Eggs are perfect, and their house potatoes are crispy and delicious. The staff is super friendly and the ambiance is really cool, sitting outside right on PCH, under the sunshine. Awesome. I've also had various... More

What a fun, busy, yummy place! We love this place!! The food is great, but the people are what make it so special... Local busy spot--but they keep things moving quickly. The special of red velvet pancakes were quite the treat!

I've been to Stack's many times. The service is very good, and the staff is friendly and helpful. However, the food is average at best. Even the signature pancakes are just ok. And the wait times are almost always long.

Heard about this place from a friend..and told to get there early..we did but there was already a line out the door. Seating is very limited. The wait was worth it and the pancakes (several variations) were great! Price is also very reasonable. Very much worth it :)

I suggest going on a weekday morning. We went on a Friday morn and the waitress reserved a table for us while I stood in line and ordered breakfast. Food is quick and beyond delicious! Prices are VERY INEXPENSIVE!! Friendly atmosphere, friendly people. Excellent, just excellent.
