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.

First time at this location. The pineapple coconut pancakes were very yummy and husband was quite happy with his omelette. Asked for crispy bacon and that is what they delivered. Staff checked on us and were very friendly. Prices were more than reasonable for the quality and quantity.

The special of the day was blueberry ricotta, delish. And the eggs were great, too. You have to wait on line and order before you sit down, but if you are a big party you can ask the staff and they will put tables together for you.

This is my kind of breakfast spot - a lengthy menu with tons of delicious options, good coffee and great service. The cashier recommended the oreo cookie pancakes and it was a fabulous recommendation, they were so good. Couple of suggestions - first, the portions are huge! Second, get there early if you are planning on coming on the weekend.... More

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
