Great Brunch/Breakfast

Family Brunch/Breakfast place. Everything is good including egg scrambles, waffles, pancakes, etc. Great for taking the kids. A tad crowded on the weekends but they have lots of tables and move people pretty fast.

We enjoyed our breakfast at Stacks. We thought our meals were above average and quite good (it's hard to mess up breakfast). Our service was great and the restaurant's decor was cute. We would visit again.

For such a family oriented and college town there are surprisingly few places in the area where one can go and get a decent breakfast at a fair price. I think it should be possible to get a three egg platter with sides for $9-12 and fillings - which these guys try to do (on the steeper end of the... More

I had the Crab Crepe and it was full of crab and very tasty, it came with hash brown and bagel and was good value for money. The setting was clean and well presented and the service was of a high quality. All-in-all I was a satisfied customer :-)

We ate here for breakfast on a beautiful Sunday morning in Menlo Park; because of how busy it was we gladly sat outside. The food was a solid 'barely average'. The pancakes weren't even great. The cleanliness outside was poor. Because of one bad experience, on 2 easy to do right breakfast entrees, we sadly have no intention of returning... More

While visiting Palo Alto, my team and I searched for a breakfast spot. We found Stacks and could not have been happier. The portions were ample, and while the service was a bit slow the delicious food more than made up for it. The pancakes were without a doubt the absolute best I've ever had. If your'e in Menlo Park/Palo... More

We waited about 10 minutes for a table in the middle of the lunch rush, were served soon, large portions of "comfort food". Do not come here expecting gourmet offerings. Using the rest room is a real hassle, requiring a token and an elevator ride. Ambience is noisy Americana diner style. I thought the bill was high considering what we... More
