After hearing great things about Stacks, we went there for breakfast on our last day of vacation. So glad we did! The menu is extensive and we got so much food for the money we spent. My daughter had the Oreo pancakes and I had an omelette. Both meals were delicious! The staff were great as well.

Great food and always a long line of people waiting to get it...that's proof! But they are fast and efficient. Not a lot of ambiance, but cute, clean and a nice outdoor patio so your fur baby can join you!

My daughter thought her omelette eggs had a funny texture, but no other complaints here. I had a scramble with a side of pancakes and potatoes. Highly recommend the potato wedges, I even got an extra order to go for my wife. The pancakes are fluffy and great and the coconut syrup is a delight.

I'm alway looking for good gluten free fair and Stack's Gluten Free Blueberry pancakes are awesome. There is usually a line and it is a bit of a hole in the wall (but clean and nice)... yet offers good solid breakfasts.

Do not let the line out the door worry you. The staff is very efficient and by the time you pay and find a table, your food will be showing up. Stacks is a crowd pleasure with great pancakes of course and delicious egg dishes. Be adventurous and try some of their more interesting combination plates.

I would recommend the short stack order. The regular is like "man vs. Food" size! The cookies and cream was good, very sweet, wouldn't get again. The banana Mac nut was good, I would order again. Good, but wouldn't go back.

The food was just OK. It is a take out type of place where you order at the counter then sit down. We had omelettes and pancakes, the food really was just average. I have definitely had better breakfast meals.

Lots more than pancakes! Nice selection of healthy, tasty choices. Open patio seating with a smallish storefront.
