Reminds me of something you would see in Hawaii

The menu is interesting. They serve breakfast and lunch only. The French Toast dipped in Captain Crunch cereal is interesting with the sweetness and texture.

The menu is interesting. They serve breakfast and lunch only. The French Toast dipped in Captain Crunch cereal is interesting with the sweetness and texture. Waffles are great with whipped cream and fruit. The Portuguese sausage and eggs with rice reminds me of something you would find in Hawaii. It is delicious. Crowded in the mornings, especially weekends.

I enjoyed a hot and tasty Loco Moco on my way to the airport. This eatery is a little tucked away and I had to turn around to find it but it was worth the effort. The place was bustling and the waitstaff were helpful and friendly. My grub can quickly and just as I ordered. The price was most... More

Some indoor seating- good 3/4 service-mostly outdoor tables. Lots of fluffy pancake options. Can get busy with a line out the door.

I love coming here with my grandkids. Stacks makes a great kids waffle, french toast or pancake plate with whipped cream and strawberries that my grandkids can't wait to dig into. Add a mug of hot cocoa and they are in heaven. I usually go for one of the chalkboard specials and I'm happy too. Lots of choices for breakfast... More

Stacks was one of the best places we tried while in Dana Pt. It's in a row of shops just up from the Dana Pt arch just past Subway. There's a small parking lot just past the row of shops. You order at the counter (there are hand held menus if you have trouble reading the board). After you order... More

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
