Loved the breakfast. Kids loved the cookies and cream waffle and Oreo pancake. Great way to start the day.

Saw an ad about this place. One of our family members loves pancakes so this was for her, but we all loved the meal! Great variation! Seating outside and in, but it is hectic and crowded. You can't linger because others want your table. Long line for ordering but worth the wait! They have an Eggs Benedict Club that is... More

Open till 2pm there are tables available in and outside. This is on PCH so the traffic can be a bit loud for sitting outside. Their french toast is made with Hawaiian sweet bread and is tasty. The omelettes are average, but if you can catch a "special" with sausage and unusual ingredients they improve dramatically. This is a line-up... More

I've driven by Stacks countless times and never gone in, mainly because I'm not much of a breakfast person. However, always noticed that this place has a line out the door and so decided to try it for the first time to see for myself what everyone else already knew. There is seating for 30 to 40 inside the small... More

When we arrived, line was long, it was all the way out. But they moved fast. I asked for polish scrabbled egg, later changed it to regular veggie scrabbled egg because of the pork sausage. I also asked for a stack of pancakes. Service was very fast. One server was walking around with a coffee pot and asking if we... More

I found Stacks Pancake House on TrIp Advisor while my boyfriend and I were vacationing in Dana Point. The first time, we went on a Sunday, which was pretty busy but it didn't take too long to find seating. The staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant had a relaxed beachy vibe. We ordered an omelet and I was... More

Stacks is a small breakfast place with very good food, and a fast, service with a smile attitude. It's true that seating is limited, so arrive early, or sit outside, weather permitting. We found that the food more than compensated for any tiny inconvenience we encountered. The only problem I had was being able to clean my plate given that... More
